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:

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

About the Cover Image for Volume 94, Issue 4

Rare diseases can be painful, isolating, and stigmatizing. The relative dearth of information about them makes any research all the more critical, as any new discoveries could pave the way for novel therapies and cures. Rare Disease Day is one international effort aimed at giving these ailments the attention they deserve; held on the 28th of February, it raises awareness for unknown or overlooked illnesses in the hopes of developing treatment options and building social support networks. Original cover design by Peter Harris.
