The Res Medica is the peer-reviewed Journal of the Royal Medical Society.
We accept articles written by medical students and clinicians covering clinically relevant topics. These include original, systematic review, literature review, perspective, historical, and case report articles.
Since its founding in 1957, the Journal has been served by both student doctors and clinicians in the publication process and is proud to be one of the longest serving Journals run by and for both medical students and clinicians. Our parent Society, the Royal Medical Society, is the oldest medical society in the United Kingdom and was established by medical students in 1737. Today the Journal is run by a core of student doctor editors, an international academic advisory board, a team of senior student peer reviewers, and a team of expert clinician and academic reviewers, totalling over hundred individuals.
The Journal is currently indexed on the Directory of Open Access Journals, Google Scholar, and is in the process of indexing with major international databases as of 2014. Please contact the editor if you have any enquiries or ideas about potential publications.
