Early View Announcement
We are happy to announce that the Journal of Travel Medicine is now part of the Wiley-Blackwell Early View service. Articles will now be published on a regular basis online in advance of their appearance in a print issue. These articles are fully peer reviewed, edited and complete – they only lack page numbers and volume/issue details – and are considered fully published from the date they first appear online. This date is shown with the article in the online table of contents. Because Early View articles are considered fully complete, please bear in mind that changes cannot be made to an article after the online publication date even if it is still yet to appear in print.

The articles are available as full text HTML or PDF and can be cited as references by using their Digital Object Identifier (DOI) numbers. For more information on DOIs, please see

When Early View articles are available, they can be accessed via the journal homepage at Simply click on the “Early View” tab at the top of the list of issues available to view. On print publication, the article will be removed from the Early View area and will appear instead in the relevant online issue, complete with page numbers and volume/issue details. No other changes will be made.

The implementation of Early View for the Journal of Travel Medicine represents our commitment to get manuscripts available to view to the academic community as quickly as possible, reducing time to publication considerably without sacrificing quality or completeness.
