International Journal of General Medicine


Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Scott Fraser

The International Journal of General Medicine is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on general and internal medicine. Clinical studies in all areas of human disease and medicine are welcomed.

Specific topics covered by the journal include:

  • Diagnosis and nonsurgical treatment of diseases
  • Elucidation of disease processes and management protocols
  • Patient perspectives including satisfaction, quality of life, health literacy and communication
  • Development of new healthcare programs and optimizing clinical outcomes
  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Monitoring and treatment protocols
  • Multi-system disease processes
  • Prevention
  • Pathogenesis
  • Epidemiology

When considering submission of a paper utilizing publicly-available data (e.g. SEER/GWAS/TCGA/GEO etc.), authors should ensure that such studies add significantly to the body of knowledge about a specific disease or relevant phenotype and that they are validated using the authors’ own data through replication in an independent sample set and functional follow-up. Bioinformatics studies should also conform to these criteria.

Cell line and animal-only studies will not be considered.

The International Journal of General Medicine is characterized by the rapid reporting of reviews, original research, and clinical studies across all disease areas.

The International Journal of General Medicine will no longer consider meta-analyses for publication.

Case reports/series submitted to the International Journal of General Medicine will be diverted to the International Medical Case Reports Journal (The International Medical Case Reports Journal is not an Impact Factor journal).

All papers submitted on or after 6 January 2022 must meet these requirements.
