Founded by Sam Seifter in 1982 and originally titled The Einstein
Quarterly Journal of Biology and Medicine (EQ),The Einstein Journal of
Biology and Medicine (EJBM) serves as a forum for the basic and
clinical investigation being conducted by the members and alumni of the
Albert Einstein College of Medicine as well as other academic medical scientific
institutions. In addition, an important aim of EJBM is the publication of articles written by students,
postdoctoral fellows, house officers, and junior faculty members. Thus, EJBM encourages original investigation
by scientists and physicians in training.
The contents of EJBM encompass
the results of basic and clinical investigation, as well as those disciplines
at the interface of medicine and the social sciences, medico-legal and
ethical studies, epidemiology, public policy, and the history of medicine.
The Einstein Journal of Biology and Medicine publishes articles in all fields
of biology and medicine, and invites contributions from any scientific or
clinical department. The form and style of manuscripts may vary with the
topic and might include: 1) short reviews of general interest to the professional
community; 2) short original reports of recent investigations; 3) critique
and commentary on ideas and issues presented in the recent scientific
literature; 4) essays in medical history, biography, or educational design; 5)
correspondence related to contemporary scientific or medical debates; or
6) ad libitum prose, poetry, or humorous pieces treating medical or nonmedical
themes from a distinctly personal perspective. The Einstein Journal of Biology and Medicine publishes one to two issues per year.
