Attention Meds: Submit your writing to the UBCMJ

Wednesday, September 10, 2014

The UBC Medical Journal (UBCMJ) is an internationally recognized student-run academic journal with the goal of engaging students in a dialogue in medicine, and is currently accepting submissions for its Spring 2014 issue. Students and health professionals throughout Canada are encouraged to submit!

The UBCMJ provides an amazing opportunity to:
• Publish a commentary, review or research in a peer-reviewed journal
• Learn about the submission and review process
• Stimulate dialogue on medical issues that matter to you
• Enhance your resume (eg. for CaRMS applications)

Submission genres include Academic Research, Reviews, Commentaries, Global Health, and Case and Elective Reports. The UBCMJ publishes issues every March and September.

The submission deadline for the Spring 2014 issue is Monday, October 6, 2014 (by 11:59 pm). The theme is Health Advocacy, so submissions related to this topic are encouraged.

Please note, however, that articles do not have to be on theme and authors can submit anything they wish to be published.

Articles are accepted in all areas of medicine, including but not limited to research, reviews, case reports, medical history, ethics, medical anthropology, epidemiology, public health, medical education and international health.

To encourage and recognize high quality writing, the UBCMJ Distinguished Writing Award (with a $250 honorarium) is awarded to the strongest article submitted for this issue.
