Forum for AIDS research

Published: Sunday 15 August 2004
The XV International AIDS Conference's theme 'Access to All' got working with the first issue of the International AIDS society's e-journal, which is dedicated to the "dissemination of HIV/AIDS research in developing countries". The first issue of the free journal has all abstracts of the papers presented at the conference and the quality of papers that the journal brings out is yet to be seen.

The International AIDS Society hopes that the journal will encourage the papers of those researchers, who carry out site and population specific study, but don't get an opportunity to publish them. Though these studies are essential for understanding local problems and finding solutions, they do not meet the standards of originality and innovation maintained by traditional medical journals. eJIAS would help scientists remain informed about research, analysis, and opinion relevant to the delivery of prevention, treatment and care especially. Thus the journal would correct the imbalance between those countries that have the worst HIV problems and those that publish most of the articles.

Also the papers can be submitted in English, French, and Spanish. The eJIAS will reach more than 2 million healthcare professionals in 249 countries.
