Aims and scope
Current Medical Science provides a forum for peer-reviewed papers in the medical sciences, to promote academic exchange between Chinese researchers and doctors and their foreign counterparts. The journal covers the subjects of biomedicine such as physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, pharmacology, pathology and pathophysiology, etc., and clinical research, such as surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and otorhinolaryngology etc. The articles appearing in Current Medical Science are mainly in English, with a very small number of its papers in German, to pay tribute to its German founder. This journal is the only medical periodical in Western languages sponsored by an educational institution located in the central part of China.
