SSME Recommended Scientific Journals


Medical Teacher is the journal of AMEE, an international association for all involved with medical and healthcare professions education.

Medical Teacher addresses the needs of teachers and administrators throughout the world involved in training for the health professions.

ACADEMIC MEDICINE Academic Medicine is the official, peer-reviewed journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges. The journal serves as an international forum for the exchange of ideas, information, and strategies to address the major challenges facing the academic medicine community as it strives to carry out its missions in the public interest. The journal’s areas of focus include: education and training issues; health and science policy; institutional policy, management, and values; research practice; and clinical practice in academic settings.

Health Education Journal is a peer reviewed journal publishing high quality papers on health education as it relates to individuals, populations, groups and communities vulnerable to and at risk of health issues and problems.

A strongly educational perspective is adopted with focus on activities, interventions and programmes that work well in the contexts in which they are applied.

The journal is published eight times a year and is keen to receive original papers on health education methodology, research, policy development, and practice - particularly from an international perspective.

Scholarly reviews and discussion papers are welcome alongside articles describing recent research.

British Medical Journal (The BMJ)

BMJ started out 180 years ago as a medical journal, publishing articles on stillborn children, amputation at the shoulder and the climate of the Isle of Wight.
Now, as a values-driven company and global brand, we work toward our vision for 'a healthier world.' We do this by partnering with more than 8,000 medical organisations worldwide so they can provide their users with the best available resources. We make our content available in 14 languages, and create evidence-based subscription-based products to help clinicians better tackle today’s most critical healthcare challenges. It is inspiring to see the rapid growth of students and qualified doctors around the globe progressing their careers and achieving accreditation with our e-learning modules and events.

Our expertise extends from publishing and medical education to clinical decision support and events to enhance day to day decision-making and healthcare delivery.  Whilst our focus remains unchanged, we continuously adapt to the changing research landscape by remaining innovative and competitive.

Health Professions Education

Peer review under responsibility of AMEEMR: the Association for Medical Education in the Eastern Mediterranean Region

The journal aims to be an open forum for sharing new empirical findings and new ideas in the emerging field of health professions education. In addition, it focuses on three areas that are underdeveloped in this field. First, existing journals offer little opportunity for young researchers to master the craft of scientific publishing in close interaction with experienced reviewers. Health Professions Education will therefore offer more extended editorial support to young researchers than is possible for existing journals. We encourage beginning authors to submit their work to our journal.

Americal Journal of Health Education The mission of the American Journal of Health Education (AJHE) is to publish research manuscripts that focus on Health Education and Health Promotion interventions designed to prevent or delay the onset of the major chronic diseases and illnesses that impact populations of interest today (CVD, cancer, diabetes, COPD, cirrhosis, Alzheimer’s/dementia, etc.). In addition, AJHE is actively seeking manuscripts that inform the discussion on the role of lifestyle behaviors (nutrition/diet, physical activity, weight management, tobacco use prevention, stress control, self-management of chronic disease, emotional and social functioning, alcohol and other drugs abuse, etc.) in chronic disease management.
