Wolters Kluwer Medknow provides for long-term digital preservation through two primary partnerships, Portico and CLOCKSS. Portico is a leading digital preservation service worldwide. The content is preserved as an archival version and is not publically accessible via Portico, but is provided when required under specific conditions, such as discontinuation of the collection or catastrophic failure of the website.

Articles published online under the Ahead of Print model are considered published and can be cited and quoted using the DOI as the reference source. Wolters Kluwer Medknow has a policy that changes will not be made after publication of an article without following accepted procedures for making corrections to the scientific record.
While advertisements are crucial to this journal to be able to keep all content free for everyone, ethical considerations are in place to ensure the integrity of the journal and its content:
The Annals of Medical and Health Sciences Research is a bi-monthly multidisciplinary medical journal. We publish original research investigations, review articles (systematic and narrative), short communications, editorials, case reports and letters to the editor on basic, clinical, ethical and socio-economic issues related to medicine and allied medical sciences including dentistry, preventive medicine, rehabilitation, biomedical engineering, etc.
Multidisciplinary research which integrates basic medical science with clinical component will be given preference. We may occasionally publish book reviews and technical reports on special topics.
All submissions are initially subjected to review by the editorial board and then sent for double blinded peer review to referees in appropriate specialties who have published recently on the subject. We will consider manuscripts for publication from any part of the world, but most particularly manuscripts that would be of interest to readers in the third world.
