Maney to publish one of the oldest and most respected Belgian medical journals

95

Maney Publishing is pleased to confirm a new partnership with the Belgian Society of Internal Medicine, the Belgian Society for Clinical Biology and the Royal Belgian Society of Clinical Chemistry to publish Acta Clinica Belgica: International Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Medicine from 2014. The journal is in its 68th year and publishes bimonthly.

Acta Clinica Belgica publishes papers on clinical medicine, clinical chemistry, pathology, and molecular biology. Readership includes physicians, pathologists, pharmacists and physicians working in non-academic and academic hospitals, practicing internal medicine and its subspecialties.

The journal will continue to be edited by Norbert Lameire, Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the Medical Faculty of Ghent University, who has served as Editor for the last 16 years. The journal will use Maney’s online submission and peer review system (Editorial Manager) which will enhance the experience of publication for authors, reduce publication times and administration for the editorial staff, and stimulate the submission of more papers for the journal.

Professor Lameire and the President of the Belgian Society of Internal Medicine, Dr. G Moorkens, comment on the new publishing arrangements: “We are very pleased that Acta Clinica Belgica will be published by Maney from 2014. Maney works closely and creatively with professional societies throughout the world, and we admire its expertise and commitment to publishing high quality medical research. Its international reach, online publishing technologies, and experience in the publishing of peer-reviewed journals in healthcare will undoubtedly benefit our journal.”

Mark Simon, Maney’s Publishing Director, welcomes the new partnership: “Acta Clinica Belgica is a very welcome addition to our portfolio of healthcare journals. We look forward to building on its key feature of combining clinical and laboratory medicine which is now being emphasised in its new subtitle. As with all our new journals, we hope to take Acta Clinica Belgica to the next level of international dissemination, online usage, and citation. In the immediate future, it will benefit from Maney Online, the new online platform that we are launching later this year.”
