About the Journal

Focus and Scope

JMIRx Med (ISSN 2563-6316) is a peer-reviewed journal publishing papers across a broad range of medical, clinical and related health sciences. Unlike the majority of JMIR journals, papers published in this journal do not require a technology or digital health focus. 

Conceived to address the urgent need to make highly relevant scientific information available as early as possible without losing the quality of the peer-reviewed process, this innovative new journal is the first in a new series of “superjournals”. Superjournals (a type of "overlay" journal) sit on top of preprint servers offering peer-review and everything else a traditional scholarly journal does. Our goal is to rapidly peer review and publish a paper. All JMIRx Med papers must have originated as a preprint. 

All JMIRx Med papers are rigorously peer-reviewed, copyedited and XML-tagged. Accepted papers are published along with the related Peer Review Reports and Author Responses to Peer Review Reports, providing an additional layer of transparency to the scholarly publishing process. 

There is currently no article processing fee for this journal.
