Volume 5, Issue 2, 2020
Partners in Digital Health (PDH), publisher of TMT, has joined OASPA scholarly publishers and has pledged to support the Wellcome Trust and World Health Organization (WHO) initiatives (1, 2) for COVID-19 papers. We will work to rapidly abbreviate review times for research to be widely shared. Authors will note PDH will license all content that supports computational reuse to other publishers as well.
Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) is a leading international peer review journal where multidisciplinary thought leaders, practitioners, and stakeholders converge to address strategic, medical, technical, economic, legal, regulatory and societal aspects of this growing health technology sector. The journal assists building knowledge and consensus to deploy and scale delivery services to achieve sustainable outcomes for affordable, accessible, and quality care for health consumers around the globe, implementing pragmatic approaches to issues such as interoperability, quality and safety of evolving technologies, business processes, and economic systems driving remote care in a value based system. A world-class review board endeavors to offer rapid peer-review (14 days per review round), and includes constructive commentary to strengthen work. TMT is published quarterly. The journal registers original research article provenance on the blockchain for authors to have a permanent and immutable public record of their work to share with the scientific research community at TMT+ARTiFACTS RESEARCH PORTAL.
The Telehealth and Medicine Today audience includes leadership from enterprise, hospitals and medical research centers, payer organizations including researchers, medical directors, IT/IS, healthcare providers, universities, consultants, entrepreneurs/startups, biopharma/device/pharmacy, NGO, government, and policy.

TMT is committed to advancing the use of blockchain in scholarly publishing. Under this partnership, ARTiFACTS and TMT work together to integrate blockchain technology into the scholarly publishing workflow and collaborate to assess the effectiveness of the technology as a tool to improve speed, collaboration, access, transparency, and attribution in scholarly research.
TMT provides access for its author/researcher community to use the platform to establish proof of existence for research outputs, share research artifacts, and provide and receive immutable attribution in real-time. Authors benefit from the ability to easily and securely share work to speed collaboration.
Telehealth and Medicine Today is partnered with Code Ocean. Authors can now transparently share code associated with their research, with readers.
Code Ocean, is a cloud based computational reproducibility platform, where researchers, engineers, developers, and scientists can upload code and data in any open source programming language and link working code in a computational environment within an article. The journal encourages authors and readers to share articles to broaden the sector's knowledge base. The initiative will also assist in reducing negative results, and ideally, accelerate time to market.
The Code Ocean platform can also be used to include an executable copy of an author's code for the peer review process.
Partners in Digital Health and Code Ocean will work towards the integration of Code Ocean into the journal submission and peer review workflow, where code and data is used. Authors will upload their code and data, within a cloud based computational environment, to create an executable “compute capsule” that can reproduce their results. A compute capsule will get a DOI and be embedded within the article upon the manuscript’s publication, enabling readers to view and verify the article’s results. Authors can upload and submit code and data associated with their article. Users can execute the code, view results, and modify the code to see how results change.
Partners in Digital Health joins distinguished Code Ocean publishing partners De Gruyter, Cambridge University Press, Taylor & Francis, and BMJ Publishing Group.
