YJBM is a PubMed-indexed, open-access journal whose mission is to provide graduate students and medical students with experience in writing, reviewing, and publishing articles. The journal has been in publication since 1928 and is supported by an Editorial Board made up of both students and faculty members. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by faculty in the field and there is no publication fee. The YJBM has a Scopus CiteScore of 5.4 for 2022 and an Impact Factor of 3.434 for 2021.

The length of the manuscript can vary depending on the article type. You can find guidelines for authors on our website. As part of YJBM ’s diversity efforts, we offer double-blind peer review. Reviewer bias (conscious or otherwise) should not affect the science that is published. While we encourage you to submit an anonymized manuscript, we also accept unblinded submissions for single-blind review, where only the reviewer names are kept anonymous.
