Special Collection


Dear speakerS & CONTRIBUTORS,


Thank you sincerely for your commitment and contributions to the conference, Innovation & Strategies for Digital Interventions in Mental Health. Your valuable time, effort and resources are very much appreciated. I hope this conference provides you with many opportunities and I will try my best to ensure this happens. Here is one such example...

The Biomedical Informatics Insights (BII) journal and SAGE Publishing would like to extend the opportunity to publish a Special Collection of papers from topics presented in the upcoming Innovation & Strategies for Digital Interventions in Mental Health conference. BII is an open-access journal indexed in PubMed Central and the Web of Science Emerging Sources Citation Index.


I'm interested. What should I do?


Details can be found here, but I've also summarised some key points below:

If you are interested in sending a paper on your speaking topic to this collection, let us know by 20th November 2017 ideally.

If you have any questions about whether your paper would be acceptable to submit to the collection please do not hesitate to contact SAGE Publishing Editor, Erin O’Brien (erin.obrien@sagepub.com), BII Editor in Chief, Dr. John Pestian (John.Pestian@cchmc.org), and BII Guest Editor, Dr Becky Inkster (becky.inkster@gmail.com).

Papers outside of the biomedical scope of the journal will be considered since this is a Special Collection organized around this particular conference. All articles submitted to the collection would be peer-reviewed by members of BII’s peer-review team and Editorial Board. Information on author guidelines and acceptable paper types can be found here. Additionally, SAGE recommends authors follow the ICMJE recommendations on conduct, reporting, editing and publication of scholarly work in medical journals.


When is the submission Deadline?


The due-date for full paper submissions is 31st January 2018 (with flexibility for specific cases).

Articles will be promoted on SAGE’s Health twitter and newsletter feeds upon publication. Only invited submissions will be considered.
