About the Army Medical Department Journal

The Army Medical Department Journal is a quarterly, peer-reviewed, professional publication with worldwide distribution. It provides a forum for the presentation and exchange of the most current, high level healthcare, clinical, and medical research information, as well as medically related combat experiences and military doctrine development ideas and proposals. The Journal encourages dialogue on important healthcare initiatives, seeks to expand knowledge of domestic and international military medical issues and technological advances, conveys clinical and health service support information, enhances the working relationships among the various medical corps and specialties, and promotes collaborative partnerships among the armed services.

Articles published in the Army Medical Department Journal are indexed in MEDLINE, the National Library of Medicine`s bibliographic database of life sciences and biomedical information. The indexing ensures that citation information for articles by Army and other military medical professionals published in the Journal are readily accessible throughout the global scientific and academic communities. The AMEDD Journal now shares this distinction as part of MEDLINE with the world`s finest medical science periodicals. Inclusion by the National Library of Medicine is another recognition of the high quality of content and presentation that has become the standard for the AMEDD Journal, Army medicine`s premier publication.
