Coverage of the IJMS in the ISI Database


After years of hard work and planning, we now proudly announce that the Iranian Journal of Medical Sciences (IJMS) is now indexed In the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) of the Thomson Reuters (ISI) database.

This would not have been achieved without years of professional management, planning and commitment.

We would like to thank all our readers, reviewers, authors and editorial team, without whom this achievement would not have been attained.

Your support through submitting your invaluable comments or articles in future years is highly appreciated.
