The Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) began publishing in 1999 as a free, electronic, open access journal of cyber-medicine and electronic health (i.e., all aspects of the intersection of health and the Internet). The editor-in-chief and publisher since 2001 is Gunther Eysenbach, senior scientist, Centre for Global eHealth Information. JMIR is an international, interdisciplinary, scientific, peer-reviewed journal focused on research information and communication in the health care field using Internet-and intranet-related technologies. Fully indexed in seven services including MEDLINE, JMIR invites research papers from the medical sciences and from computer, behavioral, social, and communication sciences; psychology; library sciences; informatics; human-computer interaction studies; and related fields. JMIR is the official journal of both the Society for the Internet in Medicine (sponsors of the MedNet conference) and the Internet Healthcare Coalition.

JMIR's goal is to help health care and medical professionals and consumers maximize the use of the Internet to deliver quality health care and health information. To achieve this goal, JMIR publishes original research reporting the application, development, and evaluation of information technology related to the Internet, as well as proposals, reviews, and opinion papers on standards, policies, and legal and ethical issues of e-health. Some sample article titles from 2004 include:

* "Can Clinical Trials Requiring Frequent Participant Contact Be Conducted over the Internet?"

* "Pharmacist Computer Skills and Needs Assessment Survey"

* "Experience and Attitudes Towards Information Technology Among First-Year Medical Students in Denmark"

* "Using Claims Data to Examine Patients Using Practice-Based Internet Communication: Is There a Clinical Digital Divide?"

Journal sections have clearly defined editorial policies and identified contact editors. The sections are Editorials and Guest Editorials, Original Papers, Policy Papers and Proposals, Letters to the Editor, Reviews/Tutorials, Book Reviews and Critically Appraised Topics in Communication (CATCH-IT) Reports, Health Informatics, and Technology. Features of the journal include a rigorous but speedy peerreview process, an author acceptance rate of about 40%, and a $500 article fee with waivers and institutional memberships available. …
