The Indian Journal of Medical Research (IJMR) is an open-access peer-reviewed journal committed to publishing high-quality articles in the field of Multi Disciplinary. The journal is owned by the Indian Council of Medical Research and published by the Scientific Scholar.

Aims & Scope

The Indian Journal of Medical Research (IJMR) is a biomedical journal with international circulation. It publishes original communications of biomedical research that advance or illuminate medical science or that educate the journal readers. It is issued monthly, in two volumes per year.
Manuscripts dealing with clinical aspects will be considered for publication, provided they contain results of original investigations. Articles need to be of general interest – e.g., they cross the boundaries of specialities or are of sufficient novelty and importance that the journal’s readers, whatever be their speciality, should be made aware of the findings. Research papers reporting original research, review articles (both narrative and evidence based), research correspondence, letter to editor will be considered. Viewpoints and Perspectives are also considered. Papers of routine nature which are merely records of interesting cases, as also those dealing with modifications of routine methodology are not encouraged. Further, serialization of articles by the same author(s) into various parts (1,2,3, etc.) is strongly discouraged. In such cases the authors are advised to submit independent papers with self-sufficient titles and text.
The IJMR strongly discourages duplication/reduplication of data already published in other journals (even when certain cosmetic changes/additions are made). If and when duplication is detected after publishing in IJMR, the journal will be forced to ‘retract’ such articles. Articles based on work carried out in private nursing homes and other non-recognized hospitals/research institutes will be discouraged.
