Abstract

The World Nutrition Journal was conceived on the premise of academic and clinical education for healthcare providers caring for patients that require nutritional support.[1] The journal followed the open access (OA) methodology, allowing free access everywhere in the World. The main question that some asked was why publish this journal electronically and not printed?.Most of us are aware that one of the most important hallmarks of academic achievement in medicine and other areas, is publication of scholarly-written articles. When discussing publishing a manuscript, the primary question is whether the target journal should be electronic or printed version. The many advantages of having electronic publications have created a series of websites, journals, webcasts that are useful for practitioners.[2]
