Healthcare Technology Letters now listed in PubMed Central

25 January 2016

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Europe’s leading publisher of digital and print engineering and technology resources, has announced that the IET’s newest journal Healthcare Technology Letters is now in PubMed Central.

PubMed Central (PMC) is a free full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine.

Since December all Healthcare Technology Letters content has been indexed in PubMed Central. This means that all Healthcare Technology Letters papers are now discoverable through PMC, which will enhance the visibility of the author’s work and widen the readership of Healthcare Technology Letters.

In celebration of this, the IET is offering a 50 per cent discount on open access publication options in Healthcare Technology Letters for the first half of 2016.

The link to our listing on PMC and details of the discount are available from the journal’s homepage on the IET’s digital library www.ietdl.org/HTL.

Notes to editors:

  • Interview opportunities are available with IET spokespeople from a broad range of engineering and technology disciplines including cyber-security, energy, engineering skills, innovation, manufacturing, technology, transport and women in engineering.
  • The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 167,000 members in 127 countries. It is also the most interdisciplinary – to reflect the increasingly diverse nature of engineering in the 21st century. Energy, transport, manufacturing, information and communications, and the built environment: the IET covers them all.
  • The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing our members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are touched by, or touch, the work of engineers.
  • We want to build the profile of engineering and change outdated perceptions about engineering in order to tackle the skills gap. This includes encouraging more women to become engineers and growing the number of engineering apprentices.
