Aim of the Journal?

There are two main Aims of JLMR; to produce a body of literature that is clinically relevant and to make this knowledge freely accessible to all. Journals have shown a trend to move towards a more rigid framework of scientific publications, meanwhile losing the focus that Journals are meant to directly influence and improve patient care. Charging for downloading articles imposes another limitation on dispersion and use of knowledge. JLMR intends to counter these two issues by creating a journal that is intelligent, interactive, and clinically relevant and at the same time completely Open Access.

The Journal of Legal Medicine and Research  will  continue as a Six-monthly (2 issues per year) online journal. The online version will be an open-access source. The journal publishes original articles, Case Studies systematic reviews and meta-analyses, instructional lectures, case reports, technical notes and letters to the editor.
