In 2021, Bentham Science will move a few journals to a Continuous Publishing Model, which means that an article will be published online as soon as it is finalized without waiting for an entire journal issue to be completed, resulting in a consistent stream of timely, high-quality content.

Our researchers, readers and students will thus be able to access and cite articles much more quickly as our print timetable will no longer be a limitation.

Thirty-two Bentham Science journals will be converted to continuous publication. These will be:

  1. Anti-Infective Agents
  2. Coronaviruses
  3. Current Bioactive Compounds
  4. Current Cardiology Reviews
  5. Current Diabetes Reviews
  6. Current Drug Discovery Technologies
  7. Current Traditional Medicine
  8. Current Women's Health Reviews
  9. Infectious Disorders - Drug Targets
  10. Nanoscience & Nanotechnology-Asia
  11. Recent Patents on Engineering
  12. The Natural Products Journal
  13. Current Signal Transduction Therapy
  14. Journal of Photocatalysis
  15. Current Nutraceuticals
  16. Current Chinese Engineering Science
  17. Current Chinese Computer Science
  18. Current Chinese Chemistry
  19. Current Nanotoxicity and Prevention
  20. Current Mechanics and Advanced Materials
  21. Venoms and Toxins
  22. Journal of Fuzzy Logic and Modeling in Engineering
  23. Current Cosmetic Science
  24. New Advances on Endocrine Metabolic and Immune Diseases
  25. Journal of Environmental Materials and Sustainable Energy
  26. The International Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Diseases
  27. The Chinese Journal of Artificial Intelligence
  28. Current Applied Materials
  29. Current Probiotics
  30. Current Functional Foods
  31. Current Forensic Science


Posting papers as soon as they are finalized has several advantages. The readers will get access to articles faster, and they will therefore draw an increased number of citations which will have a positive impact on the journal’s impact factor.

In Continuous Publication, the article that is made available online is the fully formatted final version, with complete references, and it is available in PDF format.


A unique article identifier is used instead of page numbers to cite an article within a volume. This identifier can be found on every article page.

All accepted articles will be published in an issue as soon as they are finalized in the continuous publication model. Instead of consecutive pagination of articles, each article will have internal pagination beginning at page 1.

Furthermore, each article will have a unique Article ID number that will appear on every page of the article and will replace the page numbers in the citation line. As a result, as soon as the publication process is completed, all papers will have their full and final citation information available.

A citation to an article in the continuous publication format would appear as:

Nataly Guzmán-Herrera, Viridiana C. Pérez-Nájera and Luis A. Salazar-Olivo,“Alpha-1-Antichymotrypsin: A Common Player for Type 2 Diabetes and Alzheimer's Disease”, Current Diabetes Reviews 2021; 17(5) : e121020186817.
