Medicus invite original research papers, clinical case studies, literature reviews, editorials.

The journal is published in both print and online formats.


Medicus is an open-access journal, which means that all articles are freely available, ensuring maximum, worldwide dissemination of content. The journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. The main principles of open access we support are: •peer-reviewed literature should be freely available without subscription or price barriers; •literature is immediately released in open access format (no embargo period); and •published material can be re-used without obtaining permission as long as a correct citation to the original publication is given.
Medicus accepts and is guided by the BOAI definition of open access:
“By ‘open access to [peer-reviewed research literature], we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.”
