The Journal of Asian Medical Students’ Association (J-AMSA) (ISSN: 2226-3403) is an International peer reviewed, online open-access student led biomedical journal of the Asian Medical Students’ Association-International (AMSA-International) published biannually, indexed at Ulrichsweb, Google Scholar, IndexCopernicus and Gale Cangage learning. It has been started with a vision of encouraging student led research in the Asia-Pacific Region and beyond.

Research and Scientific writing by medical students is being increasingly acknowledged all over the world. AMSA-International with its vision of Knowledge, Action and Friendship, wants to encourage all forms of research and creative work from medical students. J-AMSA is a platform for young and budding researchers from Asia-Pacific and beyond who are just beginning their careers in the medical and scientific fields.



The main objective of J-AMSA is to serve as a portal by documenting the research activities. We encourage all forms of scientific writing including Original Research articles, Review Articles, Case Reports, feature articles, letters to the editor etc. If you are interested in submitting your research article please go through the Author Guidelines and Submission Guidelines under the Submission section of our website.

The journal accepts scientific articles authored by medical students including but not limited to the member countries of AMSA-International. Scientific articles related to all the disciplines of medicine, public health or health care management and those articles having impact on health in any form will be accepted. However, the editorial board reserves the right to deny publication of any article if it deems so. One of our priorities is to keep the article processing time to a minimum. Our online submission and article processing system has been tailored to fulfill this objective. Preference will be given to original articles with structured methodology.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us at or contact any of the editors at the email addresses provided in the website.
