The McGill Journal of Medicine (MJM), published biannually in print,
is an international, peer-reviewed publication run entirely by the medical
and science students of McGill University.
Re-launched in 1994 by then medical student, Jonathan Lim, with accolades
from both the Dean of Medicine at McGill University, Dr. A. Fuks and Prime
Minister Jean Chretien, MJM's mandate to provide a forum for students across
the world sets it apart from nearly all other medical journals in circulation.
The MJM offers all students an opportunity to publish the results of
their scientific research or to contribute commentaries about pressing
issues of the day. The unique flavour of this journal has gained the attention
of many authorities,
including NEJM, JAMA and Annals
RCPSC, who recognise the value of journal created by students for
students. In all of its issues, the MJM has strived to strike a delicate
balance between original
articles, reviews and editorial
letters. Its goal is to provide its readers with a global perspective
of clinical medicine and accentuate the pressing social concerns as well
as denoting new scientific breakthroughs.
The nature of the administration of the MJM makes it particularly sympathetic
to contributions from students who are just beginning their careers in
the medical and scientific fields. As such, this journal hopes to encourage
students to continue their research by providing them with an editorial
staff eager to consider their submissions. Many students publish their
first articles with the MJM and readily recognise that this journal served
as a launch pad for their future contributions to scientific literature.
Furthermore, the MJM is continually looking to expand its network and
recruit other enthusiastic individuals into its community. The MJM staff
welcomes anyone eager to participate in this experience either through
submissions or technical assistance. All questions and comments are welcome.
