About the Journal

The International Journal of Medical Students (IJMS) is an open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal (ISSN 2076-6327) that publishes original research and experiences in all fields of medicine. The IJMS was created in 2009 to share scientific production and experiences where there is at least one author enrolled as a medical student (including MBBS students, MD students, DO students, MD/MSc students, and MD/PhD students) in any medical school in the world or a recently graduated physician. These early-career scientists must be accompanied by a senior researcher that must be also responsible for the research, guaranteeing the quality of the work. As the longest-standing, non-interrupted, international Journal for medical students, with the highest impact and visibility in the world, the IJMS aims to be the leading publication platform for early-career scientists' medical research.

Announcing the IJMS Research Pathways: YouTube series



Dear (future) physician-scientist,

We are launching our first YouTube series: The IJMS Research Pathways

This is an online series about the career and experiences of physician-scientists who have gone through the process many of us face or have faced, not knowing where to begin, how to publish, or where to find a mentor. Now they share their experiences from med school to a successful research career.

The first episode, "Writing your first article," is now available on YouTube


We hope you learn and enjoy the company of our speakers. Make sure to share, like, and subscribe.

Don't forget to visit our website to read about the Journal, check out our latest issue, and follow us on FacebookInstagramTwitter, Youtube, and Linkedin.
