Top 5 Medical Journals in the World Everyone Should Know About

Anyone who wants to become a good researcher knows the importance of having respectable publications. What makes its publication respectable? The simplest answer is to get your articles published in reputable journals. This brings us to another question which concerns the attributes of a reputable newspaper. There is no simple answer to this question because many factors make a journal reputable in the scientific world. These include impact factor, peer review and indexing.
Today, there are too many magazines in the world. It often becomes difficult to determine which ones are good. Still, there are a few whose name is enough to inspire excitement in the research community. Why explore medical journals? One reason is that you’ll find the top-ranked journals in medical science covering the latest health issues. The second reason is that these journals are cited and talked about more than usual during the pandemic. And of course, don’t forget that medical knowledge is something everyone should have.

So, let us check them out:

  1. The Lancet
    If you happen to read newspapers on a daily basis (do it if you don’t!), you must have heard of The Lancet quite frequently recently. It is an Elsevier journal and covers a range of medical science topics. With a solid impact rating of 59.102, it is among the top-ranked journals in the world of medicine. As it has a long history and excellent contemporary reputation, all items go through rigorous evaluation before being selected or rejected.
  2. New England Journal of Medicine
    A leading journal in the medical sciences, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) enjoys a considerable reputation and is among the most cited journals in the field of scientific research. Every year it receives thousands of submissions, and barely 5% of them manage to get published due to the strict editorial and publication policies maintained by the journal. The journal is often ranked the top journal in medicine and has contributed enormously to clinical practice. To encourage access to less developed countries, it offers free online access to no less than 90 such countries.
  3. The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA)
    The JAMA Network publishes journals with some of the highest impact factors in the world. JAMA reportedly has the highest circulation of any medical journal and is offered in print and online. All published research articles are peer-reviewed and strictly edited. Although there are no limitations on the type of articles you can submit, the topic you choose to write about must have practical utility in medicine. Most of the articles in the journal relate to a range of fields, including cardiology, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, and plastic surgery.
  4. JAMA internal medicine
    Another influential JAMA Network journal, JAMA Internal Medicine, as its name suggests, is limited to articles on general internal medicine. All articles, as in all Network journals, are peer-reviewed and subject to a rigorous editorial process. Its official website is visited by millions every year and has millions of views and downloads. Many articles published in the journal have sparked legislative action around the world and helped improve the state of general internal medicine through its high-impact scholarship.
  5. The British Medical Journal (BMJ)
    The BMJ has a long history dating back to the year 1840. Back then it was called the Provincial Medical and Surgical Journal and was at the forefront of groundbreaking research in medical science. The objective of the journal is to offer an educational discourse on health and to federate health professionals to encourage better medical practices in the world. Many of the papers published in the journal transformed medical science in unprecedented ways, such as those on raising babies.
