OA Text is an independent open-access medical and scientific publisher showcases innovative research and ideas aimed at improving health by linking research and practice to the benefit of society. It is committed to providing a 'peer reviewed' platform to outstanding researchers and scientists to exhibit their findings. It publishes but not limited to original research, analyses and reviews, news, practice updates and thought-provoking editorials.
OA Text has grown from a small group of like-minded individuals into an open movement with clear Mission and Vision to publish high quality research content and uphold the publication ethics to advance the intellectual agenda of science. We see OA Text as a starting point for a community that we hope will grow and be augmented by individual and collective efforts by the participants and others. OA Text will be publishing the original research reporting on new knowledge on science. OA Text reports on fundamental advancements in research organized initially into 5 journal domains, embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society

OA Text welcomes proposals for Special Issue, a set of solicited and refereed collection of Articles and Research Notes on a predetermined theme or collection of papers on a specific topic from conference proceedings or projects of broad interest, typically 6-10 articles in each group. OA Text Special Issues are designed to draw attention to under-researched or controversial topics or to new emerging themes in international research.For more information, see our Special Issues informational page.

Supplementary material providing additional information that enhances the main text and is directly referenced within the text should be submitted for publication with the article.
