We are pleased to announce a partnership between PeerRef and Blockchain in Healthcare Today (BHTY).

PeerRef is a journal-independent open peer review platform. It helps researchers verify and improve research by organizing peer review of preprints and publishing peer review reports. It also provides journal editors with verified research that can be published immediately. The partnership will provide authors of suitable refereed preprints with a route to publication in BHTY.  Editors will consider PeerRef’s open peer review reports in publication decisions. For articles that are accepted, authors of refereed preprints will receive a 10% waiver on the journal's APC. Through this partnership, we will give authors more choice in how they share their peer reviewed preprints.

BHTY is pleased to announce the journal has been accepted to PubMed, December 2022.


Beginning January 2023, authors will have the option to chose Transparent Peer Review (TPR) for manuscripts submitted. Please see Information for Authors or Journal Information for details.


Plain Language Summaries (PLS) are encouraged for authors to include in manuscripts. These summaries have emerged as a valuable article addition that distills scientific information in a simple and easy to read form for the broadest possible understanding across a variety of stakeholders, thereby expanding the reach of an author’s work. Communicating the significance of scientific research evidence to audiences including patients and mass media can provide more inclusion across nontechnical, non-specialist, and time-challenged audiences.


BHTY encourages libraries, organizations, and institutions around the globe to execute simple Publish and Read Agreements with the journal. Contact the publisher, Tory Cenaj, at
