It is indeed a matter of honour and great pride to be the founder Editor of this would-be prestigious journal. I feel lucky to be led by a visionary and dynamic Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Javed Akram who is the author of many international and national publications and is the chief investigator of many studies. I am flanked by two very able Associate Editors, Prof. Tariq Waseem and Dr. Somia Iqtadar who have lot of interest in research and have many publications in journals with good impact factor. Another important member of the team is Managing Editor, Dr. Rizwan Iqbal, with the lifelong experience in research and publishing.

We also have the support from our international Editorial Board, Dr. David Lye (Singapore), Dr. Sue Jones (UK), Prof. Leszek Czupryniak (Poland), Dr. Asif Humayun (UK) and Prof. Tanzeem Haider (UK).

In addition, we have the National Review Board consisting of learned people from all parts of the country

Our aim is to publish the original and quality research on all topics related to Internal Medicine in accordance with international rules and standards. It is going to be a quarterly journal with minimum of 6 original articles as required by Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC) in addition to review articles, editorials, case reports, case series, guidelines, and case puzzles. Recognition from Pakistan Medical Commission & Higher Education Commission and indexing in PubMed & Index Medicus will be sought in due course of time.

I take this opportunity to request everyone to contribute to the journal in whatever way they can. Please find a link on this page to upload your paper for publication. After going through the process of editorial reviews and independent peer reviews, it will be published as soon as possible.
