Information for Societies

Welcome to the Royal Society of Medicine Press information pages for societies. We hope the information you require can be found within the pages and links below, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.

RSM Press

More than a publisher

RSM Press is not only a leading publisher of healthcare journals and books but is also part of The Royal Society of Medicine, an organisation committed to professional education and development. RSM Press has no external shareholders, and all profits go to the Society and help to underpin its educational activities. Unlike commercially driven publishers, our values are likely to be closely aligned with those of your own society.

What we can provide

  • Improved usage and impact factors

    As an experienced and successful publisher, we know the importance of high usage in making a journal as valuable as it can possibly be. By employing techniques such as regular telemarketing campaigns, creating promotional materials highlighting the availability of content to institutions, email campaigns promoting online activation and articles, and licensing our content to an aggregated database hosted by EBSCO, RSM Press are able to ensure the highest possible awareness of your journal.

    The latest 2010 Impact Factors published in the Journal Citation Reports® by Thomson Reuters are now available. We are excited to announce a marked increase in the following journals:

    • Annals of Clinical Biochemistry increased from 1.917 to 2.209
    • Acta Radiologica increased from 1.270 to 1.483
    • Phlebology increased from 1.548 to 2.209
    • Experimental Biology and Medicine increased from 2.635 to 2.954

    What we offer within RSM Press

    • Consolidation of all RSM journals onto the HighWire H2O new online platform
    • Adoption of ManuscriptCentral electronic peer review system for all journals
    • Back issue digitisation
    • Inclusion in the Portico and LOCKSS digital archiving projects
    • Optional open access service
  • Increase in profile

    Our marketing plans include mailing, email and online campaigns to librarians, subscription agents, academics and clinicians, attendance at key conferences, regularly updated catalogues and web presence, and personal sales representation in key markets. In addition we reach agreements with interested societies for bulk deals. We find these tactics have greatly increased our journal profiles, as well as the related societies.

  • Wide geographical reach

    We are growing personal local representation across a number of international territories, promoting our journal content to institutional and consortia customers in their own languages. As well as this, we can grow the circulation of your journal significantly through agreements with major societies across North America, Asia, Europe and Australia.

  • Benefits of being part of the RSM Press

    Becoming aligned with RSM Press will allow the society and the journal editorial board the opportunity to become members of the Royal Society of Medicine and purchase RSM Press publications at a significantly discounted price.
