WIMJ Open is the open access companion journal of the subscription-based West Indian Medical Journal. Publishing your manuscript through an open access medium puts more power in your hands. Open access articles are freely available in a shorter period of time, via the Internet, to end users worldwide who can copy, share, and even adapt and build upon your work, as long as the work is correctly credited.
Publishing in WIMJ Open will also allow more citations for your work, as it is available to a wider cross-section of people who do not have to pay to access and use it, as is the case in subscription-based journals. All articles submitted to WIMJ Open undergo the same vigorous peer-review process. You, the author or researcher, also retain copyright of your work, through the use of a Creative Commons licence. WIMJ Open is currently indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
WIMJ Open operates as an author-pays service. Once articles are accepted, a one-time payment of US$1000 is required before the manuscript can be published. No payments are necessary for colour photographs/figures or reprints since all articles are only published online.
