European Journal of Translational and Clinical Medicine (EJTCM; Eur. J. Transl. Clin. Med.; ISSN: 2657-3148, e-ISSN: 2657-3156) formerly known as Annales Academiae Medicae Gedanensis (ISSN 0303-4135, e-ISSN 2719-6666) is published semi-annually by the Medical University of Gdańsk (MUG) since 1971. Prof. Dariusz Kozłowski, our Editor-in Chief, initiated a series of changes to our journal such as the new title, language of publication, frequency, format and editorial standards.
Aim & Scope
European Journal of Translational and Clinical Medicine (EJTCM) aims to publish articles about:
- multidisciplinary basic & clinical medical research,
- integration of basic studies with clinical practice (translational medicine),
- application of new technologies and solutions in all fields of medicine.
Researchers and health professionals are encouraged to submit Original Research Articles, Reviews, Meta-analysis and Short Communication articles on any experimental and clinical results. Bioresource Papers and Commentaries are also appreciated.
As part of our mission in the field of translational medicine, we encourage the Authors of articles published in EJTCM to share their research datasets on the Polish Platform of Medical Research. Sharing of datasets increases the reproducibility and transparency of research, builds public trust in science and allows researchers to re-use data to advance their research projects.
EJTCM proudly supports student researchers by publishing supplemental materials such as conference abstracts.
Mission of the European Journal of Translational and Clinical Medicine is to contribute to the development & progress of biomedical sciences and to give Open Access to high-quality specialized medical information by eliminating financial barriers. In addition, we support the medical community by publishing conference abstracts. We achieve our mission by publishing and sharing our journal using Creative Commons licenses (mainly CC-BY-SA 4.0).
All authors can submit and publish their articles in the EJTCM free of charge. This means that there is no article processing charge (no APC) for the authors.
All articles in EJTCM are published ahead-of-pub in English only. All statistical analyses are reviewed by the Vice-Editor-in-Chief. In equivocal situations a professional statistician is consulted. All manuscripts are proofread by our Language Editor before publishing. Our journal has a policy of screening for plagiarism and uses the iThenticate service.
All EJTCM articles are archived (as PDF files) and are free for readers on the servers of the Medical University of Gdańsk, as well as in Pol-Index. They are also deposited and stored in the CeON Repository and Digital Repository of the National Library (Repozytorium Cyfrowym Biblioteki Narodowej). We also provide article download statistics.
EJTCM has 40 points on the list of scientific journals maintained by the Ministry of Education and Science and 120.64 points in the Index Copernicus maintained by ICI World of Journals. In addition, our Journal is currently indexed in Scopus, Embase, Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), Google Scholar, Crossref, Central and Eastern European Academic Source and EBSCO Discovery Service (EBSCO), Polish Scientific Journals Database, Biblioteka Nauki ICM UW, and we are taking steps towards indexing in Web of Science, and PubMed.
