About Medical Sciences


Medical Sciences (ISSN 2076-3271) is an international scientific open access journal, providing a platform for advances in research related to basic sciences of medicine. The journal aims to publish original and review articles, short research communications and other information about molecular and cellular processes in disease and illnesses, thus to increase understanding of fundamental principles and biological questions of medicines.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their theoretical and experimental results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of papers. There are, in addition, two unique features of this journal:

  • Manuscripts regarding research proposals and research ideas will be particularly welcomed.
  • Electronic files regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure can be deposited as supplementary material (including animated pictures, interactive Excel sheets, and others).
