Focus and Scope
The Galle Medical Journal is published by the Galle Medical Association. The Journal is published biannually, March and September and the submissions are accepted throughout the year. The aims of the Journal are to foster co-operation among the medical fraternity and to be a forum to make literary contributions, share experiences encountered in medical practice, update their knowledge and have debates on topics related to all aspects of medicine. Also, we attempt to cater to the educational needs especially of the postgraduate trainees. The Journal publishes original articles, reviews, leading articles and case reports. When an article is reviewed for publication we expect that the work it reports has not been submitted simultaneously to another journal, has not been accepted for publication elsewhere or has not already been published. All manuscripts will be reviewed anonymously before acceptance.
All articles published in the journal are deposited with Crossref
Although GMJ is currently published annually, arrangements have been made to publish biannually; June-July issue and Nov-Dec issue.
