About EJMD

Aims & Scope:

The European Journal of Musculoskeletal Diseases is a peer-reviewed journal published every 4 months. The journal is committed to publishing the full range of topics in the fields of experimental and clinical medicine, molecular biology, biochemistry, regulatory molecules, cellular immunology and pharmacology, and the single most important criterion for acceptance is scientific excellence. Articles must therefore pose and test a significant hypothesis that will provide novel perspectives and approaches to understanding these topics and will stimulate the interest of the broad readership of the journal.

EJMD's Open Access Initiative

The advent of online publication has greatly improved access to scientific content on a global scale. This has led to calls from the academic community for research publications to be made freely available online and immediately upon publication, without the barrier of paid subscription to access.

In response to these calls and following consultation with journal contributors, the Editors of EJMD have now launched the Open Access initiative. This means manuscripts submitted and accepted after peer review will be published in EJMD with open access under the CC BY license.

Copyright/Open Access

Published under the subscription model and open access options

In most instances, EJMD makes its content freely viewable and searchable. EJMD grants any third party the right to use most articles freely, as long as its integrity is maintained and its original author, citation details and journal are identified. However, some articles may require permission to be re-used, as determined on a case-by-case basis.
