Academic journals are typically peer-reviewed journals that publish theoretical discussions and articles that critically review already published work. Academic journals serve as an important forum for researchers and academicians from where they can access important information about recent developments in their field. These journals are the first choice for any in-depth examination of an issue related to science. Science as we know is scarcely imaginable without the academic journal.
OMICS Group International is successfully running 700+ peer-reviewed journals and organizing over 100 International Science Conferences annually with the support of 30, 000 editorial board members. OMICS Group International signed an agreement with more than 100 international societies to make health care information Open Access.
