JEM Launches New Article Format: Technical Advances
The Journal of Experimental Medicine has launched a new article format to bring readers cutting-edge approaches that they can incorporate into their research. Technical Advances articles are primary research studies reporting a novel technique that advances pre-clinical or clinical research and is of immediate value to JEM’s broad readership. The new format asks authors to validate the new technique and demonstrate its advantage over existing approaches.
“The new article format builds on JEM’s commitment to serving the community and encouraging collaboration that can advance science for all,” JEM Executive Editor Teodoro Pulvirenti says. “Our audience is broad and diverse, so we encourage authors of studies that fit the Technical Advances format to submit to JEM.”
The length limit for Technical Advances is 40,000 characters (not including spaces, methods, or references), with up to 10 figures and/or tables. Technical Advances may have up to five supplemental items, and references are unlimited.
JEM has published the first Technical Advances with the study “Detection of interferon alpha protein reveals differential levels and cellular sources in disease” (Mathieu P. Rodero … Darragh Duffy).
