Content Sponsorship


Peer-reviewed journal supplements provide you with a credible, objective means to publish themed articles on topics related to your company’s business. Supplements are mailed with the regular issues of the journal to the entire readership and are also hosted online on the journal website. A Continuing Education component may be included to enhance value. All articles within a supplement must undergo independent peer review.

Special Sections

A Special Section is a sponsored section of a regular issue a similar to a supplement but with fewer articles focusing on a specific topic.

  • Articles go through the regular peer-review process.
  • The sponsor gets recognition on the cover (depending on the journal) and/or the table of contents.
  • The articles are included in the online issue and any number of pages and articles can be included online.
  • The print issue can be purchased in bulk; pricing depends on the journal and the order quantity.
  • Reprints of the special section articles can be purchased, and all the articles can be combined into one reprint.
