It is usual for your name and contact details to be included in the published content. Your published article or case study or commentary will be made available on our website, https://www.ajpfm.ac.in/explore-our-content, and, to help promote and protect your work and ensure maximum discoverability, will be distributed to a number of third parties including abstracting and indexing service providers, originality check providers, content repositories, content aggregators and library discovery tools.
