About MEJFM

Today’s world is, in many ways, unimaginably different from that of even 50 years ago. The dominant driver for such change is a new knowledge, and its translation into new ways of doing things. The first online journal of family medicine for the Middle East has started despite all obstacles, as the idea behind the journal is unique, and futuristic. From its beginning, the specialty of family practice has also distinguished itself as unique. Family practice even earned itself the designation of a "counterculture" specialty, not surprising given the individualism and rebelliousness of those who entered family practice in the early years of the specialty.

The Middle East Journal of Family Medicine (MEJFM) is a peer-reviewed journal to meet the needs of scientists, practitioners, policymakers, and the patients and communities they serve in the Middle-East. It is born out of the growing need for the exchange of ideas and research results in the region. It will foster a knowledge base for caring for individuals, families, societies and communities. The Mission of the Journal is to promote family medicine in the Middle East. The journal publishes original clinical and educational research of interest to primary care specialties, practicing clinicians, residents and others involved in primary care and community medicine education. Faculty development and clinical research and methods are also featured in the journal. It will include state of the art review articles based on evidence based medicine and teaching case reports. Reflections from editorial members, clinicians and policy makers will be included as well. Environmental health and control of environmental hazards will receive attention, in addition to the effect of war on health.

The aim of the journal is to provide academically sound, clinically practical information for family and general physicians, in addition to the promotion of the specialty of family medicine in the Middle East Region.

The editorial and peer-review processes of the journal have full editorial autonomy from both organizational and commercial pressures. A prominent regional and international Editorial Board facilitates to direct the journal to achieve its mission and foster regional, and international participation.

The Journal is published monthly. The Middle East Journal of Family Medicine web site (http://www.mejfm.com) provides access to the online journal and the daily news for family doctors, the notice board, and the MEJFM browser. The full-text online journal is available free to all. This encourages sharing new knowledge about primary care and health systems in the Middle East. The journal represents an unparalleled collaborative effort by two departments of family medicine in the region, community centers, Australian Family Physician (Royal Australian College of General Practitioners) and medi+World International.
