International Journal of Medical Sciences
Journal URL: http://ijms.ivyspring.com

International Journal of Medical Sciences (ISSN 1449-1907) is a new journal launched
in late 2003 publishing peer-reviewed scientific papers of significance in all areas
of medical sciences from basic research to clinical and experimental work. Papers in
all areas of internal medicine, clinical medicine, emergency medicine, community
medicine, epidemiology, medical ethics are welcomed as well as papers in pathology,
pharmacology, physiology, immunology, virology, biomedicine and medical informatics.

The Journal publishes online bimonthly. In addition, each year's bound volume is
published by Ivyspring International Publisher, an emerging and leading publisher in
modern technology, in high-quality printed paper and/or CD-ROM distributed to major
libraries in the world.

The Editorial staffs and the publisher are very committed to build the journal as one
of leading international journals in medical sciences in the next few years. With the
supports of several biotechnology companies, we will expect heavy resource to be
channeled into the journal to establish its international prestige. The journal's
prestige will be enhanced from arrangements with several organizers of international
conferences in publishing selected best papers of the conference proceedings in late
this year and next year. The first issue of the journal due to appear in March/April.

Submissions should be done electronically to facilitate very rapid turnaround time
that the Journal aims at. Authors should submit PDF (preferred) or Word version of
their papers formatted in a convenient style for review process. Manuscripts should
be formatted in single space only, font 11 points to 12 points, letter or A4 size.
Image and Table file formats can be embedded in the PDF or Word or as GIF. Efforts
should be made to minimize the file size of transfer, as review is also done
electronically. Hence we prefer images in GIF format rather than TIFF, EPS, and JPEG
which are normally much larger. Submission implies that the work has not been
previously published or under consideration for publication by other journals, and
that the submission has been approved by all co-authors. Manuscripts must be written
in standard English.

The manuscript should include a title page containing the title of the article; the
author's name(s), affiliation(s) with complete addresses, corresponding author's
email address, phone/fax number. An abstract consists no more than 250 words where
acronyms and complex abbreviations should be avoided. A set of up to 5 keywords
should also be provided after the abstract.

The author(s) can suggest two or more potential referees with their e-mail addresses,
affiliations, homepages or contact information. If necessary, the author(s) provide a
list of individuals with potential conflict.
