Dubai Medical Journal

​Aims and Scope

The mission of the Dubai Medical Journal is to encourage innovative research by promoting original scientific research in the fields of medicine, health sciences, nursing, pharmaceuticals, and laboratory and other related sciences. Nonclinical subjects related to medicine, especially ethics and complementary medicine as well as social and cultural issues, are also covered. As international as Dubai itself, the journal offers a global perspective, but also focusses on the United Arab Emirates. Partnerships with local and international medical and health authorities are envisaged.
The journal facilitates the dissemination of information through research articles, review articles, case reports, editorials, letters, book reviews, meeting reports, and discussions. An educational corner will help to ensure continuous professional development and education. Besides this, the journal also offers a platform for controversies, mythology, and much more. ​
