Established in 2015, the Florida Medical Student Research Journal (FMSRJ) is a student-run, peer-reviewed journal that publishes scholarly works related to medicine and healthcare authored by medical students, graduate students, and professionals.
Medical students have long contributed to the advancement of medical science, but navigating the strange waters of medical literature and scientific journals is not a task for the faint of heart. Publishing original works is a protracted process, fraught with disappointment and uncertainty. Nonetheless, undaunted medical students embark upon this path repeatedly, albeit with little guidance. This journal aims to bridge the gap during those early years of medical students’ careers when unfamiliarity with publishing and peer-review are most prevalent.
Facilitating academic discourse and teamwork, this journal allows students the unique opportunity to prepare for a future in academic medicine and to venture far beyond what is expected of a typical medical student.
- To publish original academic works by students and professionals.
- To provide the opportunity for students to peer review original content and participate in the process of publishing.
- To introduce the student body to the pursuits of fellow classmates.
Scope: The Florida Medical Student Research Journal accepts all healthcare related submissions by medical students, graduate students, and professionals.
Novelty: All submissions must be original, unpublished works.
