  About Us

The Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences (MJMS) is a peer-reviewed, open-access, fully online journal that is published at least six times a year. The journalís scope encompasses all aspects of medical sciences including biomedical, allied health, clinical and social sciences. We accept high quality papers from basic to translational research especially from low & middle income countries, as classified by the United Nations & World Bank (https://datahelpdesk.worldbank.org/knowledgebase/ articles/906519), with the aim that published research will benefit back the bottom billion population from these countries. Manuscripts submitted from developed or high income countries to MJMS must contain data and information that will benefit the socio-health and bio-medical sciences of these low and middle income countries. The MJMS editorial board consists of internationally regarded clinicians and scientists from low and middle income countries.


MJMS has its humble beginning as Diagnosa, first published in 1987 by the School of Medical Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia. Since then, Diagnosa has been transformed from being an internal publication to its current status as a highly regarded international journal. Re-branded as the Malaysian Journal of Medical Sciences (MJMS) in the year 1994, the journal has since garnered a vast readership both locally and internationally and is being indexed in the following databases: Bioline International, SCOPUS, EBSCO, DOAJ, Index Copernicus, Google Scholar, MyAIS, PubMed Central, PubMed, and more recently, Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) by Thomson Reuters. The journal is also a proud member of the World Association of Medical Editors, Council of Science Editors, and Scientist Without Borders. MJMS is now published under Universiti Sains Malaysia Press, an established publishing house of the Universiti Sains Malaysia (http://www.usm.my). Our publication criteria are based upon high ethical standards and rigorous scientific methodology (http://publicationethics.org/files/Code%20of%20Conduct_2.pdf)


Authors are welcomed to submit original articles, review articles (systematic and meta-analysis), brief communications, special communications, and letters for consideration of the MJMS editorial board.


All submission will undergo rigorous quality and statistical checks (http://journal.usm.my/journal/01MJMS23052016_ED2.pdf) and peer-review evaluation process before a final decision (http://journal.usm.my/journal/mjms-22-6-001.pdf). At the moment, the acceptance rate is 38% (2015).
