GONZALEZ-PENA, Mayreth  y  ESPINO HERNANDEZ, María. Main form and content elements required to develop a student electronic scientific journal project. Rev. cuba. inf. cienc. salud [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.199-219. ISSN 2307-2113.

Introduction: many student research studies never come to be published due to shortage of means or academic spaces where students can prepare and appropriately produce their manuscripts. Objective: characterize student electronic scientific journals of medical sciences and create a matrix containing the main form and content elements required to develop a journal project. Method: a descriptive study was conducted of the student electronic scientific journals of medical sciences produced by educational institutions until the year 2009. The following general and content and form variables were analyzed: regional coverage, language, periodicity, layout, users/readers, sections, multimedia resources, license models and added value services. Results: of the 50 journals reviewed, 68 % were from Latin America and the Caribbean. A trend toward an increase in the number of student journals produced was observed from the 1990s onwards (p = 0,018). The following journals stood out for their content and form: Asian Student Medical Journal, regional; Global Pulse: American Medical Student Association's International Health Journal, from the United States, and "16 de Abril", from Cuba. Conclusions: a trend toward an increase in the number of student electronic scientific journals of medical sciences was observed, particularly in Latin America and the Caribbean. The distribution of contents and formal traits is varied in the journals analyzed, and it is unique in some of them. However, few journals make appropriate use of multimedia resources and added value services. The elements identified made it possible to create a reference matrix to determine the main form and content elements required by student electronic scientific journals, according to international standards for this type of publication.

Palabras clave : electronic journals; components of publications; technical and scientific publications; serial publications.
