What is Nature Medicine?
Nature Medicine is a peer-reviewed academic journal established in 1995 and published monthly by the Nature Publishing Group, a division of Macmillan Publishers Ltd. As with other Nature journals, this periodical has no external Editorial Board, with editorial decisions being made by an in-house team.
Nature Medicine publishes research articles, reviews, news and commentary pieces. Topics include cancer, cardiovascular disease, gene therapy, immunology, vaccines, and neuroscience. Research papers cover areas that â€˜demonstrate novel insight into disease processes, with direct evidence of the physiological relevance of the results.
Articles are archived online in text and PDF formats, and access is subscription-based. This is the highest-cited research journal in preclinical medicine, according to Journal Citation Report 2010. It also has one of the highest impact ratings of primary (non-review) scientific journals.
