International Journal of Medicine (IJM) is the official medical Journal of the International Association of health Care Professionals (IAHCP).
It is a peer-reviewed Journal with distribution in more than 291 countries and territories. The journal seeks to be the leading journal in the field of medical practice and education for all health care professionals. It aims to publish material of the highest quality reflecting leading edge research and contemporary perspectives.
The IJM aims to publish rigorous, accessible and entertaining material that will help healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and medical students in their daily practice, lifelong learning and career development. In addition, it seeks to be at the forefront of the international debate on health. To achieve these aims we publish original scientific studies, review and educational articles, and papers commenting on the clinical, scientific, social, political, and economic factors affecting health. We are delighted to receive articles for publication in all of these categories - from doctors, and other healthcare professionals. We can publish only about 32% of more than 9,000 articles that we receive each year, but we aim to give quick decisions (see Advice to contributors).
The IJM is published quarterly and has a circulation of about one million outlets worldwide in about 291 countries and territories, of which 25,000 copies are distributed outside Britain. There are also sections to publish student work and issues.
