Focus and Scope
The Journal of Scientific Innovation in Medicine is an Open Access, international, peer reviewed journal in the area of transformative scientific developments that provide new concepts and paradigms in treatment of human disease. The mission of this journal is to advance an understanding of how to apply new technology, scientific discovery and innovative solutions in order to expand the frontiers of medicine. The journal welcomes manuscripts that present original research pertaining to therapeutic discovery from both clinicians and scientists as they discover new ways to treat diseases and illnesses. The journal also welcomes submissions of original research related to the impact of scientific discovery on the health care system; including costs, value and applicability. In addition, the journal solicits original papers exploring scholarly attitudes towards clinical innovation, exploring healthcare technology assessment and the effect of new technology on society. We also welcome medical student, resident and fellow papers and accepted conference abstracts. We encourage trainees to publish their work, e.g. originating from evidence-based research, which will be subject to constructive peer review process.
The Journal of Scientific Innovation in Medicine does not charge any submission fees or author processing fees (APCs).
The journal is published online as a continuous volume and issue throughout the year. Articles are made available as soon as they are ready to ensure that there are no unnecessary delays in getting content publically available.
Special collections of articles are welcomed and will be published as part of the normal issue, but also within a separate collection page.
