Medicine® is changing...
Into an important broad spectrum
open access journal.

Medicine® is transitioning into an open access publication, providing authors with a distinctive new service offering continuous publication of original research across a broad spectrum of medical scientific disciplines and sub–specialties. As an open access title, the Journal will offer continuous publication, covering a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines and sub-disciplines. Medicine® will cover the latest research and clinical developments in medicine and health sciences.

Medicine® is a Medicus/MedLine/PubMed indexed journal, with an Impact Factor of 4.867 as reported in the 2014 ISI Journal Citation Reports (ranking 15th out of 150 General & Internal Medicine titles).

What is Open Access?

Open access (OA) is the practice of providing unrestricted access via the Internet to peer–reviewed scholarly research. Open access journals provide 'gold' open access, meaning immediate open access to all of their articles on the publisher's website. ‘Gold’ open access for individual articles is funded by authors (or their author's institution or funders) who pay an open access publishing fee (APC).

The APC for Medicine® is $1200 for any of the 6 Creative Commons 4.0 International licenses.
