Subject: [hifa] How can health research from LMICs be made more accessible? (14) Medical Council of India (2)
The editors of several Indian journals have taken up this matter. It was discussed by a team of them, when we had the conference of the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME) in October last year. Some of them got together and wrote this article
And interestingly, every journal editor agreed to carry the article. So if we search PubMed by the title "The Revised Guidelines of the Medical Council of India for Academic Promotions" - we will find the same article in 12 Indian journals today, and more may still carry it.
The said article definitely talks about the "online only" journals (suggesting that they need to worry about predatory journals), but also addresses a whole lot of issues in the MCI circular. (Example authorship and more)
