- Archiving and Scholarly Practices: We use LOCKSS preservation, the PKP|PS Indexing service, Portico, ORCID, CrossRef, and Crossmark. We adhere to ICMJE, COPE, and WAME guidelines and practices. TMTis published on the PKP Open Journal Systems (OJS), platform. We have partnered with TrendMD.
- Portfolio: We are a far-reaching new era portfolio of journals committed to disseminating knowledge, stimulating thoughts and conversations to build consensus, a clearer path forward in areas that pioneer innovation and change legacy systems, and assist in achieving better health, quality of care, and a more efficient healthcare system.
- Indexing: As a new journal, we don’t have an Impact Factor. As soon as TMT publishes a required and acceptable number or original research articles, the sooner we anticipate TMT will be indexed. We also endeavor to seek membership in an array of organizations and societies, which will benefit authors. In future, indexing articles will occur retroactively once index status is obtained. Be assured TMT is working hard to achieve this.
- Revenue sources: TMT revenue will consist of advertising support for the journal, reprints, author fees, and related initiatives conducted under the auspices of the journal such as conferences, summits, and roundtables and custom projects. Under no circumstance does commercial support impact the editorial decisions for journal manuscript submissions.
TMT is committed to building trust through truth. Your contributions are paramount to achieve this goal.
Those with an interest in submitting a manuscript or obtaining further information are encouraged to do so.
