Aims and Scope

Editor-in-Chief: Professor Scott Fraser

The International Journal of General Medicine is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that focuses on general and internal medicine. The journal showcases categorized research on diseases related to specific areas of the body, curated by a global team of experts within each area. 

Focus areas of the journal

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 

Acceptable study types

Clinical studies in all areas of human disease and medicine are welcomed.

The journal will not consider research purely focusing on surgical techniques, cell lines or animal studies.

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 author’s own data through replication in an independent sample set and functional follow-up. Bioinformatics studies should also conform to these criteria.

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

Acceptable article types

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

Case reports/series submitted to the International Journal of General Medicine will be diverted to the International Medical Case Reports Journal.
