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 platform for early-career scientists' medical research.
