About the Journal

The Katz Journal of Medicine (KJM) is a peer-reviewed and bias-blind medical-based research journal founded and led by graduate students at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine. The journal seeks to promote quality research and publication with the principal objective of advancing healthcare in a patient-centered manner. 

The journal was specifically designed to eliminate the barrier to entry often associated with research publication and consumption. KJM is an open access publication, requiring no subscription or viewing fees for its content. The journal has removed all costs associated with submission and publication. Authors may submit and publish content free of charge.  

The Katz Journal of Medicine was founded in 2022 as a collaboration between MD and PhD students at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. Each submission is blindly peer-reviewed by subject experts and trained student reviewers to assess its potential for publication. By including students in the editorial and reviewal process, KJM hopes to further educate students on how to conduct and constructively critique research design and writing.
