Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences (MJMS) (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog/101519209) cancelled its publication in 2013 year and continues as an Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences (OAMJMS) (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nlmcatalog/101662294).
The following issues were published in both journals (Table 1).
Table 1: Publication of papers in Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences and in Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences from 2008 to present
Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences was included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) with the entire content (https://doaj.org/toc/1857-9655). The content of Open Access Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences from the issue 1, volume 3, 2015 was included in the PubMed Central database (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/journals/2987/), in Europe PMC (http://europepmc.org/journals/2946/), and in PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Open+Access+Maced+J+Med+Sci.).
SCOPUS database decided to keep previous name of the journal (Macedonian Journal of Medical Sciences) and to add “Open Access” as modification. You can find all published papers in both journals at the following URL address: https://www-scopus-com.scopeesprx.elsevier.com/source/sourceInfo.uri?sourceId=19600157021&origin=sbrowse
You need username and password to enter the SCOPUS database. The best way to check papers published in OAMJMS and MJMS in the SCOPUS database is to search them by authors, not by journal.
We sent several letters to the SCOPUS team to find better solutions, but at the moment this is the real presentation of both journal names. Probably this is the better solution, because the bibliometric analyses are more precise if they are continuous in both journal names (see: http://www.scimagojr.com/journalsearch.php?q=19600157021&tip=sid&clean=0 ).
I hope this will be accepted as a continuation of publication activity of the Editorial Board of OAMJMS and MJMS and will help authors to search their articles deposited in the SCOPUS database. If you have any additional question, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
