Focus and Scope
The ISMMS Journal of Science and Medicine is an International, Open Access, peer reviewed academic journal in the areas of Medicine, Biomedical Sciences and Health Administration and Leadership. The journal is run by the ISMMS students’ body. The journal welcomes manuscripts that present original research, reviews, short communications and essays pertaining to these disciplines written by students across all ISMMS programs and internationally.
The journal supports the publication of manuscripts highlighting students’ research, advanced knowledge and emerging innovations in their respective fields. In addition, it provides an important opportunity for students to manage a scholarly journal while gaining experience in editing practices, peer review processes and the entire scientific publishing process.
The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.
Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.
