About Journal of Clinical Medicine


Journal of Clinical Medicine (ISSN 2077-0383) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on clinical and pre-clinical research. It publishes article types including Research Papers, Reviews, Editorials, Communications, etc. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

There is, in addition, a unique feature of this journal: it accepts studies showing meaningful but negative results. While there are many journals that focus on clinical studies, only a few of them actively accept negative results. As a result, most negative data end up not being in the public domain even if the data were meaningfully negative and the study well designed. By accepting those negative results, our journal encourages scientists to share those data so that they would not need to repeat the experiments that somebody else has already carried out.
