Author on Call

The function of the “Author on Call” blog is to allow our readers and authors to interact with each other in a unique way. A few select authors will be chosen to share on the blog aspects of their papers that were especially meaningful to them personally or points that may not have made it into their published report. Readers will then have the opportunity to provide comments and questions, to which the authors will respond.

At times, as seen in our first entry, we will also post separate entries to the blog on various special topics that we feel would be informational or that we welcome your feedback on.

New Open Access Hybrid Option

The open access hybrid option is now available to our authors!  Open access gives any user the free, immediate, full-text use of digital scientific and scholarly material.  Articles opting for open access will be freely available to read, download and share from the time of publication. 


LWW’s hybrid open access option is offered to authors whose articles have been accepted for publication. With this choice, authors of accepted peer-reviewed articles have the choice to pay a fee to allow perpetual unrestricted online access to their published article to readers globally, immediately upon publication.  These articles are subject to the journal’s standard peer-review process and will be accepted or rejected based on their own merit.


Wolters Kluwer Health – LWW Open Access publishing offers authors, institutions, research funding agencies, and others high-quality publishing services including:


·         Innovative publishing platform from Lippincott Williams & Wilkins

·         Global distribution of freely available, quality open access research on our journals platform

·         Article deposit in PubMed Central

·         Rapid publication

·         Rigorous peer review

·         High-quality editorial services and support

·         Compliance with federal funding mandates such as NIH, RCUK, and Wellcome Trust

We are pleased to offer this publishing option, and we encourage you to consult the journal’s open access page for complete details.


If you have a question or concern, please contact LWW Customer Service at 1-800-638-3030.


Please be assured that this new option in no way alters the review process for our articles.
