Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine (YJBM)

The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine is a PubMed-indexed, open access, quarterly journal edited by Yale medical, graduate, and professional students and peer reviewed by an extensive network of experts in the fields of biology and medicine. The journal aims to showcase outstanding research articles from all areas of biology and medicine, to publish significant case reviews, and to provide both perspectives on personal experiences in medicine and reviews of the current state of biology and medicine.

To all interested authors: Starting in June 2015, YJBM began devoting entire issues to its focus topics. This means that all manuscripts in an issue will be related to the focus topic. As a result, we will not be considering off-topic manuscripts. Please keep an eye out for our future focus topics, and thank you for your understanding.

Upcoming focus topics:

  • December 2021: Rare Disease (submission deadline: June 1st, 2021)
  • March 2022: Science of Stress (submission deadline: September 1st, 2021)
  • June 2022: Vaccines (submission deadline: December 1st, 2021)

About the Cover Image for Volume 94, Issue 3

This cover evokes the discriminatory redlining maps of the early 1900s to represent areas of inequity in healthcare services. These include, but are not limited to, racial and gender disparities, urban/rural divide, hospital access, healthcare billing, worker health, and wait times; all aspects of healthcare for which quality and access is better for some than for others. Original cover design by Peter Harris.
