About Medical Journals Links
MJL is a human managed resource that compiles information on 11,000+ peer reviewed medical journals, including subscription and open access journals, and lists journal impact factors (IF) and ISO abbreviations, in all branches of biomedicine, i.e., the study of the human body in health and disease, and medicine, i.e., the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases and other damages to the body or mind.
When publicly disclosed by publishers, MJL lists the most recent journal IF ® (©Thomson Reuters/JCR) or alternatively unofficial IFs. For further details, see the FAQ page.
The list of journals is updated continually, whereas IFs are updated during the summer, once revised IFs are made public by publishers. For instance, 2013 IFs will not be available until the summer of 2014.

Although MJL was designed for desktops and laptops, the classic version works well in iPads and PC tablets. The mobile version is suited for small (width 640 px) devices such as iPhones and other smartphones.
Smartphone users accessing the Site are redirected to the mobile version. Please consider that due to its large file size some mobile devices will be unable to handle MJL effectively.
