Testimonials from Libertas Authors

Libertas frequently receives positive feedback from authors publishing in our journals. We ask authors to provide their feedback on the publishing process to assess our performance and offer potential authors an insight into what it’s like working with us.

Testimonials are usually journal specific but often address broader subjects like article visibility and processing speed.

Here are three of the most recent testimonials:

Dr Alessandro Giuliani says: “I must say publishing with Evolutionary Bioinformatics was a great and partially unexpected experience.  It allowed me to understand the name ‘Libertas Academica’ is not just a name but a real issue.  The reviewers offered us stringent, rigorous but totally unprejudiced comments, the editor supported us and the paper visibility was very good.  Thank you again.”

Dr Francisco Bandeira comments “I would like to congratulate Clinical Medicine Insights: Endocrinology and Diabetes for the professional way it manages the entire publication process.  I am certain it will have a bright future, and reach top positions among endocrine and metabolic journals.”

Dr Adebayo Oyedeji says “I found Clinical Medicine Insights: Case Reports very, very user friendly.  The entire process is easy and straightforward.  The corresponding author is kept updated on the progress at every point.  I am pleased to send this endorsement.”

Wide Media Coverage for Healthy Aging and Clinical Care in the Elderly Article

Libertas is pleased to report that the article “Timing, Duration and Quality of Sleep, and Level of Daytime Sleepiness in 1166 Retired Seniors” recently published in Healthy Aging & Clinical Care in the Elderly has achieved exceptionally wide media coverage.

The research by Timothy H. Monk, Daniel J. Buysse, Janet E. Schlarb and Scott R. Beach measured the sleep quality of over 1100 seniors according to three different scales and concluded that neither lack of sleep problems nor sleepiness were prevalent problems in the sample they studied.

After publication, several international news companies reported the results of the paper including The Huffington Post, Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, My Health News Daily story, NBC News, Fox News, Yahoo! News, McKnights.com, and several others. KQV radio also ran a news item based on the findings of the study.

This is one example of how open access articles can achieve higher visibility and readership than subscription articles as they are free for anyone to read and share.
