JIMC takes its name from Iran’s Medical Council (IMC) and is a medical journal with public access which rather publishes general topics in medicine. In 2017, IMC decided to establish an English journal to internationally communicate with other medical societies and organisations, so as a result, JIMC was born to offer a permanent portal to communicate with medical professionals, societies, organisations and institutes to exchange knowledge and experiences. JIMC is now focusing on general topics in clinical medicine and applied scientific materials however other medical topics such as ethics, legality and legislation, professional life, Medical economy and so on are welcome. JIMC closely work with IMC’s Research committee and department of research and is now expanding its editorial board to use national and international academic faces. We hardly work to be internationally seen and cited through major electronic research tools and database.
