Peer Review Process
All submission outlines and manuscripts are subject to multiple rounds of blinded review conducted in duplicate. Both reviewers and authors are anonymized. Submission outlines, manuscripts first drafts, and manuscript third drafts are reviewed in duplicate by a senior and junior student editor. Different student editors will be assigned to a given manuscript at each stage of review (outline, first draft, third draft). Manuscript second drafts are reviewed by a faculty editor.
The University of Manitoba Journal of Medicine currently publishes an issue anually.
