About Medical Journal
The regional section of the Serbian Medical Society in Kragujevac began publication of the Medical Journal in 1961. The Journal was published from 1961 to 1998 (volumes 1-38) and after 2005 (from the volume 47). This Medical Journal publishes original scientific, expert and review papers, case reports, and papers on the history of medicine and book reviews. Papers, received to the address of the Journal, are reviewed anonymously. In order to be accepted for publication, a paper must have positive reviews by two reviewers, as a rule, by two university professors. The evaluation of the submitted papers includes systematic screening for plagiarism within the current system supporting the journal editorial management.
In addition to the four regular issues, each volume of the Medical Journal has one or two supplements. These are thematic issues in which usually paper abstracts presented at congresses of doctors (such as October Health Days) are published, while sometimes a selection of full papers is published as well. New issues of the Medical Journal have been available in the electronic form at the Journal website since 2005. The published issues are archived in both paper and electronic forms at appropriate repositories of the National Library of Serbia.
