The International Journal of Medical Students (IJMS) is a peer-reviewed open-access journal, created to share the scientific production and experiences of medical students worldwide. Our objective is to be the primary diffusion platform for medical students, using standards that follow the process of scientific publication.

The Journal receives contributions and unpublished manuscripts of Original Articles, Short Communications, Reviews, Case Reports, Interviews, Experiences, and Letters, which are reviewed by experts (Peer-Reviewers) who have previously published similar research. This supports the quality and validity of the results. The review time delay in most cases has been two to four months depending on the diligence of Peer-Reviewers and Authors.

The Journal and the Editorial Board are not responsible for the opinions expressed by the Authors of all materials published, nor do these represent the Official Policy or medical opinion of the Journal or the institutions with which they are affiliated unless otherwise stated.

The International Journal of Medical Students is published triannually on behalf of the Executive Committee of the International Journal of Medical Students. Any publication, dissemination or distribution of the information included in the Journal is permitted if the source is cited (Int J Med Students).
