Aims and scope

Medical and Health Science Journal (MHSJ) is an international research journal.

Journal welcomes papers with theoretical or applied approaches, focusing on different phases of medical and health research; medical and health production and management; discovering new medicines, new technologies and new ways to manage human health. Research papers can represent broad range of medical and health related sciences including biochemistry, epidemiology, genetics, pharmacology, endocrinology, biomedical engineering, clinical laboratory sciences, physiotherapy, and psychology.

Given publications should have research character and must be based on principles of scientific and a professional etiquette. The final decision on inclusion of paper will be made by Editorial Board. Editorial Board reserves its right to make technical and scientific editing. In case of not accepting the Board does not provide reviews and comments but resolution on publication.


MHSJ belongs to those research periodicals that stick to open access model. The journal follows funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for electronic access. In other words, we provide to readers the free online access to read and download scientific articles. This model provides greater reach of interested readers to the published articles.

In the beginning all volumes appear first as a list with names of articles and authors. At this stage the articles can have relevant abstracts and keywords, but not a pdf documents in a final version. In this phase, papers were only selected selected and are pending for review and other editorial procedures. Articles in pdf are available for download only after final updating - when they already passed the whole editorial process and are agreed with the authors. When this process end, the link becomes active and pdf available for download.


The journal is indexed by the following services:

Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory
EBSCO Discovery Service
Google scholar
Elektronische Zeitschriftenbibliothek EZB
E-International Scientific Research Journal Consortium (E-ISRJC)
Open J-Gate

We continue to work on indexation issue to provide international exposure of research papers published in our journals.We believe that indexation makes all articles well accessible and increases their potential impact on knowledge markets.
