Annals of Translational Medicine

Aims and Scope

Annals of Translational Medicine (Ann Transl Med; ATM; Print ISSN 2305-5839; Online ISSN 2305-5847) is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, aiming to provide practical, up-to-date information on the significant research from all subspecialties of medicine and broaden the readers' vision and horizon from bench to bedside and bedside to bench. It was published quarterly (April 2013 to December 2013), monthly (January 2014 to February 2015), biweekly (March 2015 to April 2023) and bimonthly (April 2023 onwards). It is also openly distributed worldwide.

With a focus on interdisciplinary academic cooperation, ATM aims to expedite the translation of scientific discovery into new or improved standards of management and health outcomes practice. Specific areas of interest include, but not limited to, multimodality therapy, epidemiology, biomarkers, imaging, biology, pathology, and technical advances related to medicine. Submissions describing preclinical research with potential for application to human disease, and studies describing research obtained from preliminary human experimentation with potential to further the understanding of biological mechanism underlying disease are encouraged. Also warmly welcome are studies describing public health research pertinent to clinic, disease diagnosis and prevention, or healthcare policy.

The journal features a distinguished editorial board, which brings together a team of highly experienced specialists in translational medicine. The diverse experience of the board members allows our editorial panel to lend their expertise to a broad spectrum of translational medicine subjects. The entire submission and review process are managed through OJS system, an easy-to-use electronic system that ensures a rapid turnaround of manuscripts submitted for publication. ATM has been indexed by PubMed/PubMed Central since Sept 2014 and Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) between March 2, 2018 and April 14, 2023.
