Dear readers and potential authors,
As you already knew we released the newest Issue 3, Volume 1 at July 5th and you can find it here. I want to stress your attention on the importance of social media in scientific publishing. There are some scientific articles which show that papers which are shared, mentioned, linked on social media such us: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Mendeley, Research Gate, Academia.edu and others are more cited papers than those which are not. I hope all of you have at least one profile on these social media. I would like to ask you to do that with your papers published previously in our Journal for ReAttach Therapy and Developmental Diversities. On the right menu of our web site you can find social media buttons and you can do that very easily. You should go to some article which is your favorite and then share it or link it. It will take you less than one minute.
With this, you will increase the visibility of JRTDD papers and possibility to be cited by other authors. Also the journal will increase its visibility and international impact in the field of reattach therapy, developmental diversities and rehabilitation sciences as well.
Also, I hope that you will find an interest in submitting some paper in JRTDD in near future. Hoping that it would not be a problem for you, I am sending to you warm regards.
I want to inform you that JRTDD articles have been deposited in Mendeley.
What is Mendeley?
Mendeley is a free reference manager that can help you collect references, organize your citations, and create bibliographies.
The strength of Mendeley, however, is what it adds to that. Mendeley is also an academic social network that enables you to share your research with others. Researchers can collaborate online in public or private groups, and search for papers in the Mendeley group database of over 30 million papers. Mendeley can help you connect with other scholars and the latest research in your subject area. Because Mendeley is now owned by Elsevier, the leading provider of science and health information, it integrates with ScienceDirect.
Mendeley is a research management tool.
With Mendeley, you can:
- Collect references from the Web and UCI databases
- Automatically generate citations and bibliographies
- From within your citation library, read, annotate and highlight PDFs
- Collaborate with other researchers online
- Import papers from other research software
- Find relevant papers based on what you’re reading
- Access your papers from anywhere online
- Read papers on the go with your iPhone or iPad
- Build a professional presence with your Mendeley profile
Mendeley works with Windows, Mac and Linux.
We have another indexing of JRTDD into QOAM (Quality Open Access Market).
What is QOAM?
Quality of Service
It is important to realise that ‘quality’ in the context of QOAM relates to the quality of a journal’s service to authors, rather than to a hypothesized quality of a journal’s scientific and scholarly content as based on citation metrics.
In QOAM, academic authors score the experience they have had with the journal’s peer review and editorial board from 1 to 5 via a concise journal score card. The QoS indicator of a journal is then defined as the product of the average score of the journal and the ‘robustness’ of this score.
The robustness relates the number N of score cards to the number A of articles (read DOIs) of the journal, both measured over the same period of time. As the number of articles of a journal varies widely, some logarithmic scaling is used to bring the result within scope. Journals with less than 10 articles are left aside. The time period is a moving window over the current year and the previous two years.
The actual formula for the robustness is: 1 + log (N/log A), with A ≥ 10.
In QOAM, the publication fee of a journal is found behind the tab ‘Price information’ on the detail page of a journal under the respective headings ‘List price’ and ‘My discount’. The first one is gathered from the journal’s web site; information about institutional discounts comes from licence brokers, like SURFmarket, publishers or libraries.
QOAM is a free service, based on academic crowd sourcing. QOAM uses no cookies and can be visited anonymously. Conversely, author reviews in QOAM are named.
In order to publish a score card in QOAM one has to log in via one’s institutional email address. In practice this means that QOAM collects the names and institutional email addresses of the reviewers. No other information is collected. The names are used to sign the score cards and are publicly visible. An author’s institutional email address, however, is only shown to other authors of score cards. No other uses of these data are foreseen.
Underlying this policy are the views that (1) anonymous score cards are prone to misuse and should be avoided in QOAM and (2) authors of score cards should be able to contact each other for dialogue.
Finally, QOAM uses the https protocol for secure exchange of data. QOAM data are stored in the Netherlands and governed by Dutch c.q. European law.
With great pleasure I want to inform you that JRTDD is already indexed in Semantic Scholar.
What is Semantic Scholar?
Semantic Scholar is a project developed at the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence. Publicly released in November 2015, it is designed to be an AI-backed search engine for academic publications. The project uses a combination of machine learning, natural language processing, and machine vision to add a layer of semantic analysis to the traditional methods of citation analysis, and to extract relevant figures, entities, and venues from papers. In comparison to Google Scholar and PubMed, Semantic Scholar is designed to highlight the most important and influential papers, and to identify the connections between them.
With great pleasure I am informing you that our JRTDD is indexed in Euroasian Scientific Journal Index.
What is ESJI?
ESJI unites in its database the most important scientific journals in Europe and Asia, which publishes the most authoritative and relevant research.
The ESJI provides indexing of major international journals and proceedings. Author can get information about international journal impact factor, proceedings (research papers) and information on upcoming events. All the journal pages have pointers to Web pages of the publishers which are integrated into the ESJI stream pages.
The purpose is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals. If your journal is indexed & got validated stamp from ESJI, you can request for the calculation of impact factor for your journal.
ESJI is a service that provides access to quality controlled Open Access Journals. The ESJI aims to be comprehensive and cover all open access scientific and scholarly journals that use an appropriate quality control system, and it will not be limited to particular languages or subject areas. The aim of the ESJI is to increase the visibility and ease of use of open access scientific and scholarly journals thereby promoting their increased usage and impact.

Also, I will have a webinar regarding our achievements in this period. Here, I want to thank to Andrea our technical secretary for preparing the presentation in Prezi, to our web admin Gjorgji Pop Gjoegjiev for continuous technical support and to our publisher ReAttach Therapy International Foundation for the great financial support.
We want to inform you that JRTDD is included in Macedonian Wikipedia.
With great pleasure we announced that JRTDD is already indexed into MIAR.
What is MIAR?
MIAR collects data for the identification and the analysis of scientific journals. If you enter an ISSN in the search box, the system will check in which databases, those referred to in the matrix, the journal is indexed. That is regardless of whether the journal is included with a full description in MIAR or not. The system will also calculates an index called the ICDS. If the journal is not included in MIAR, the value of the Survival Index will not be given.
MIAR is a COLLABORATIVE tool. Publishers, authors and readers can suggest new journals, report errors, supply news, or share data on social networks. Publishers can also include value-added information about their journals provided that it can be validated against a public source in the Internet.
MIAR has an INTEGRATED approach. Apart from showing the visibility of journals in abstracting and indexing databases, MIAR also provides information about journals from other evaluation tools, such as the Sello de Calidad FECYT, Scimago Journal Rank, or CARHUS+, as well as their open access policies as represented by the ROMEO colour.
MIAR is a TRANSPARENT and UP-TO-DATE resource. Information is always processed using data available from public sources. It can be also directly compared with the original source material. Our software agents check the sources every 15 days in order to keep MIAR updated with the latest changes or additions. The algorithm for ICDS is public and is displayed in each record for each journal.
We want to announce newest indexation of JRTDD into COBISS.MK.
