SAGE Open Medicine

SAGE Publications, London, UK
SAGE Open Medicine is a peer reviewed, open access journal which covers all aspects of medicine and welcomes articles across the health sciences in the broadest sense, including all clinical medical specialties, nursing, allied health and dentistry.

SAGE Open Medicine seeks to be one of the world’s premier open access outlets for medical academic research. As such, SAGE Open Medicine does not limit content due to page budgets or thematic significance. Papers are subjected to rigorous peer review and are selected based on whether the research is sound and deserves publication. By virtue of not restricting papers to a narrow discipline, SAGE Open Medicine facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers, whether within or between disciplines.
