Continuous publication

Gaceta Sanitaria moved to a continuous publication model in January 2023. This means that as soon as an article is ready to be published, it will be immediately released online assigned to an annual open issue, resulting in faster access to the final version of the article.

What is continuous publication?

Issues will build gradually, with articles being added to the contents list as soon as they are ready. The ‘issue in progress’ is the issue that is open and that we are adding new articles to as soon as they are ready to be published. The most recent articles appear at the top of the relevant section. Therefore, the “Online Advance” disappears since the articles ready to publish will immediately become part of a regular issue. Every three months we close the issue and this issue then becomes the ‘latest complete issue’. Any new articles will then be placed in the next open issue.

Why did we introduce continuous publication?

We are committed to making research available for the community as quickly as possible, which is beneficial for both readers and authors.

If I spot an error in my published article, can I still correct it?

As the final version of record, the article can no longer be adjusted for minor corrections or typos; for significant errors or inaccuracies, see our corrections and retractions policy.

Will the journals still have traditional page numbering?

No, consecutive page numbering within an issue is not compatible with the continuous publication model. However, to aid reading of the PDF, each individual article will still be numbered, starting from page 1. For citation purposes, each article will have a unique identifier that uses the last six digits of the DOI.

How should articles be cited?

Accepted manuscripts should be cited using the digital object identifier (DOI) as follows:

Roselló-Novella A, Lumillo-Gutiérrez I, Pla-Consuegra M, et al. Percepciones y factores externos de la actividad física en adolescentes mediante métodos mixtos. Gac Sanit. 2023;37:102281
