The JMRI aims to publish rigorous, accessible articles on all topics pertaining to various disciplines of medicine for publication. To achieve these aims we publish original research conducted nationally and internationally, original clinical observations accompanied by analysis and discussion, analysis of philosophical, ethical, or social aspects of the health professions or biomedical sciences, critical reviews, case reports with discussions. The site is intended primarily for those in the health professions; researchers, practitioners, educators, administrators, scientists, and students. The phrase health professions includes physicians, nurses, dentists, and the many types of allied health professionals in the research and health care delivery systems
