Maintenance Notice

Due to necessary scheduled maintenance, the JMIR Publications website will be unavailable from Wednesday, July 01, 2020 at 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM EST. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause you.

Who will be affected?

E-collection 'Letters to the editor*'

* Letters to the editor are exempt from Article Processing Fees. While some other journals publish "Research Letters" (short articles containing original data), JMIR only publishes letters responding to a previously published article. Short articles containing original data should be submitted as general article., not as letter. A letter to the editor must cite and critique or substantially comment on a recent paper published in JMIR. The letter will be forwarded to the authors of the cited or critiqued article or other reviewers, and original authors will get a chance to respond. While some new data in a letter are a allowed, a letter is NOT a short research report.
