Why MedEdPublish

MedEdPublish (ISSN 2312–7996) - an official journal of AMEE is AMEE’s exciting, new innovative approach to publishing in medical and health professions education.

The number of articles published in medical and health professions education has increased at a higher rate than in any other field in medicine.  

Teachers and others involved in health professions education are expected to publish regularly in order to demonstrate scholarship.

As a result, journals such as Medical Teacher receive many more articles than it is possible to publish, and many well-written, methodologically sound articles cannot be published due to space constraints.

Concern has also been expressed about potential censorship by journal editors and reviewers, and it has been suggested that readers as well as experts should have the opportunity to read and decide on the merits and utility of work produced by their peers.

Post-publication promotion

Published articles are picked up by Google Scholar, shared on social media and discussed by the reviewing community online.

If an article achieves a 'Recommended' status it is also indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journal (DOAJ).  In July 2019 an application for MedEdPublish to be indexed  in PubMed Central was submitted and further applications to other indexing services will be submitted in due course.
