Thieme, a leading supplier of information and services contributing to the improvement of healthcare and health, is expanding the specialist journal The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon by adding the new Open Access offering Pediatric and Congenital Cardiology. All contributions to the new supplement are freely accessible online. Journal and supplement together form the joint organ of the German Society for Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery (DGTHG) and the German Society for Pediatric Cardiology and Congenital Heart Disease (DGPK). The Open Access Supplement provides the DGPK with a subject-specific publication platform. With this new model, Thieme for the first time integrates an extensive Open Access offering directly into an established subscription journal.
Pediatric cardiologists and cardiac surgeons work closely together in the clinical care of young patients with congenital heart defects. Together, they form an interdisciplinary ‘heart team’. For years, this connection has been reflected in the close cooperation between the two specialist societies. With the expansion of the journal The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon into a joint publication organ, this relationship is further strengthened.
With this direct integration of an Open Access offering into a subscription magazine, both specialist societies and the publisher are jointly breaking new ground. If a contribution has successfully passed the peer review process, the authors will be offered an Open Access publication in the supplement Pediatric and Congenital Cardiology for a publication charge.
Members of the DGPK receive a discount on the publication charge in the supplement Pediatric and Congenital Cardiology. They can also subscribe to the full edition of The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon at a reduced price. All other subscribers to The Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgeon receive the supplement at no extra charge.
At Thieme, authors interested in an Open Access publication, can presently choose between over 50 strictly Open Access journals and numerous hybrid titles. Thieme offers authors a comprehensive service and many years of expertise in the presentation of scientific information. In addition to high-quality editorial editing, the authors benefit from target-group-oriented marketing and advertising strategies that ensure broad visibility and a large number of readers. All articles published open access at Thieme are available for free reading on the Thieme e-books and e-journals platform. The ‘Thieme Open’ website provides up-to-date, concise information about the Open Access offering.
