Wisconsin Medical Journal Volume 120

Wisconsin Medical Journal

Established in 1903 by the Wisconsin Medical Society, WMJ (ISSN 1098-1861) serves as a forum for professional communication and continuing education for physicians and other health professionals.

WMJ is a peer-reviewed, indexed scientific journal available through subscription and electronically—free, full text online through PubMed and PubMed Central. Published quarterly and online ahead of print each month, its mission is to provide an opportunity to publish original research, case reports, review articles, and essays about current medical and public health issues.

In 2019, the Society transferred ownership of WMJ to the Medical College of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, which together continue to publish the journal.

While WMJ has many readers throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest, web tracking indicates that its articles are accessed from around the country and even the world.
