NAJMS – An Open Source Medical Journal Brought to You by ACMES

By David Li,

I learned about North American Journal of Medical Sciences (NAJMS) at the annual conference of American Chinese Medical Exchange Society (ACMES) on Nov. 3, 2012 at Hyatt Regency Cambridge. In her annual report, Dr. June Kong proudly held a copy of NAJMS, and mentioned that this monthly publication had made significant contribution to advancing medical sciences in a short time period.

Dr. Kong presented the annual report of ACMES during the annual meeting.

According to its website, NAJMS is a quarterly peer-reviewed, open access medical journal launched in October 2008, and circulated internationally both online (ISSN 1944-0944) and in print (ISSN 1946-9357), collected by the Library of Congress of USA. The Journal is devoted to the dissemination of timely and significant observations in the diverse fields of modern medicine. The Journal is dedicated to publish the high-quality research or review articles from both basic and clinical medical sciences that will be indexed by all major indexing media, and to publish special issue periodically with in depth coverage of the latest advances of the significant interests.

The potential readers and contributors of the NAJMS include the international scientific and clinical community as well as educators, policymakers, and interested members of the public around the world.

According to Dr. Kong, NAJMS is granted with DOI (Digital Object Identifier). “We published several special issues in addition to general issues, including two hepatitis special issue, two autism special issues, two cancer special issue, two cardiology/diabetes special issue,” said Dr. Kong. Copies of NAJMS are distributed at ACMES conferences.

The following is the table of content for a recent issue of NAJMS.
