Since 1906, the West Virginia State Medical Association (WVSMA) has published the West Virginia Medical Journal (WVMJ), a clinical, peer-reviewed medical journal. The WVMJ strives to publish clinical articles of interest and within the understanding of physicians in every area of practice.
Submissions to the WVMJ are now processed through Scholastica peer-review software—online. Authors of approved clinical articles have a choice to have their articles published in our print Journal or our online Journal via the Scholastica publishing platform at https://wvmj.scholasticahq.com/. Our online journal is Open Access. Open Access (OA) is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. Open Access accelerates research through unencumbered accessibility. Publishing your article with WVMJ’s online journal on Scholastica also guarantees that your article will be indexed by Google Scholar; increasing its reach to a wider audience of practitioners and academics.
