Family Medicine will begin offering key articles Online First beginning in Spring 2018.
Online First allows final revision articles (completed articles in queue for assignment to an upcoming issue) to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final print and online journal issue.
Publishing Online First provides clear benefits to readers and authors of the journal's online content. The feature will allow Family Medicine readers the ability to access the latest papers in family medicine education. Authors also benefit from reduced lead times between submission and publication of articles. An author's research will therefore reach its audience more quickly, enabling an article to receive greater usage and exposure, including earlier citation opportunities by related work.
There are no online first articles published at this time.
