28 Aug 2019 | Amsterdam, NL – StemJournal has been promoted in the past few months across the US, from California to Washington, and in multiple locations in Brazil. Where will it be promoted next?
Ever since the publication of its first article earlier this year, StemJournal has been developing behind the scenes. The editorial team are working ultimately to solicit new submissions, though the initial task is to get the word out there. People won't submit if they've never heard of this new publication.
In April, the Editor-in-Chief Chad Cowan commented: "The journal will attract and publish the latest breaking advances in our field. Importantly, with its broad focus the journal also seeks to provide a forum for studies that use stem cells to develop novel therapies and perhaps even cures for people suffering from devastating diseases. Our vision is to build a community for all stem cell researchers to share ideas and advance the field to developing the cures of tomorrow."
It is with the help of the senior editors and associate editors that the journal is getting the attention it warrants in order to see those new stem cell research papers pouring in. Two senior editors taking the lead over the summer (in the northern hemisphere) for spreading news wide and far about our open access journal include: Laurence Daheron, promoting both StemJournal and StemBook during her presentation at the COREdinates meeting prior to ISSCR 2019 in Los Angeles, CA; and Stephanie Willerth who took every opportunity to promote StemJournal during her "invited talks tour" which took in Washington, DC, and two institutes in Brazil (at UNIFESP and UNICAMP).
As the year progresses, we will see more dissemination of our new title and there will be more conferences during 2019 where delegates will get the low down on how to submit. This includes associate editor Jacob Hanna who plans to share news of StemJournal during Stem Cell 2019 in November in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Thanks to the team for spreading the word!
