Medicine Is Not Alone: Open Access Platform


The Internal Medicine specialty covers a wide range of disorders affecting the body’s internal organs- the heart, the lungs, the liver and gastro-intestinal tract, the kidneys and urinary tract, the brain, spinal column, nerves, muscles and joints. Internal medicine is a medical specialty concerned with a wide array of illness and health issues involving adult internal organs. Specialists are known as Doctors of Medicine or Internists. They must have clinical knowledge and expertise on both simple and complex diseases that are caused by or are affecting the internal organs. They are responsible for the evaluating, diagnosing, and treating internal illnesses.

Although internists are expected to know even the rarest diseases and conditions, they can also subspecialize. There are 13 possible areas of expertise for internal medicine doctors according to the ACP, the largest organization for internists as follows:

• Adolescent medicine, including psychological and sexual development
Sports medicine
• Oncology, such as radiation and surgical
• Immunology, which deals with any condition affecting the immune system such as allergies
• Hematology (conditions affecting the blood)
• Cardiology
• Nephrology (conditions affecting the kidneys)
• Endocrinology, including diseases and conditions that are related to metabolism and hormones
• Geriatrics
Infectious diseases
• Gastroenterology (conditions affecting the intestinal tract and colon)
• Rheumatology
• Pulmonology

International Journal of Collaborative Research on Internal Medicine and Public health is dedicated to promoting science and practice in internal medicine. For this reason, the journal publishes original articles, editorials, reviews, and other relevant information of internal medicine and related fields. Both translational medicine and clinical studies are receiving Journal attention. IJCRIMPH has the goal to become the place where outstanding clinical studies can be published; furthermore, this purpose is intended to be synonymous with improving the quality of healthcare in internal medicine. The journal encourages the submission, as original articles, of:

• Quality clinical studies related to internal medicine
• Papers defining the unmet clinical needs in multiple domains of internal medicine
• Methodology of clinical research and critical reading of clinical studies
• High-level subgroup or secondary analyses of the major clinical trials
• Experimental design of planned or on-going large clinical trials. This publication may be associated with a critical assessment by methodology experts commenting the methodology of the paper, strengths and potential limitations
• Acute and critical care medicine as well as emergency medicine to contribute to develop the new professional figure of the internist
