Open access journal Q Open is making progress:
• We have been informed by Scopus that they have accepted Q Open for indexing. This is an important first step in being included in the major indexes and achieving an impact factor.
• We have a new manuscript transfer arrangement with the ERAE. Manuscripts submitted to the ERAE, but considered a better fit with the objectives of Q Open can now transferred directly for consideration for publication.
• Q Open is also well on track to reach key-performance indicators on growth in the number of manuscripts and in the turn-around time for review.
Finally, we need further support from you.
Q Open invites EAAE members who have written a paper for the EAAE congress in Rennes to submit the paper to the journal. See our website for submission details:
