Mayo Clinic Proceedings Announces New Publisher

Rochester, Minn., July 14, 2011
— Mayo Clinic announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Elsevier to publish Mayo Clinic Proceedings. A peer-reviewed journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings publishes studies in clinical and laboratory medicine, clinical research, basic science research, clinical epidemiology, health policy and general and internal medicine. The journal also offers unique features such as Concise Review for Clinicians, Residents’ Clinic, and Symposia on new developments in the practice of medicine.

“In recent years, Mayo Clinic Proceedings has made considerable advances in the quality of information published and the distribution of that information. The engagement of Elsevier as Mayo Clinic Proceedings’ publisher will accelerate this progress and help the journal secure its position among the world’s leading medical journals,” according to William Lanier, M.D., anesthesiologist and Editor-in-Chief of Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Mayo Clinic looks to further develop Mayo Clinic Proceedings’ e-presence, supporting its evolution into an integrated e-Journal, improve submission-to-publication times, and continue the sustained growth of its already strong impact factor.

Glen P. Campbell, Executive Vice President and head of Elsevier’s Health Sciences Journals states, “Elsevier, the Mayo Foundation, and the Proceedings have a shared goal of serving clinicians, researchers, authors, readers, and patients. This common purpose makes the Proceedings/Elsevier initiative particularly powerful.” 

The collaboration between these two organizations will be effective January 1, 2012.

Mayo Clinic Proceedings is published monthly by Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research as part of its commitment to the medical education of physicians. The journal has been published for more than 80 years and has a circulation of 130,000 nationally and internationally. Articles are available online at
