About the WFJSM

We are excited to announce the launch of the Wake Forest Journal of Science & Medicine (WFJSM). This journal will provide an open-access, peer-reviewed platform for the publication of solid clinical and bench science as well as case reports, perspectives and reviews. Our vision is for the WFJSM to become an indexed journal that showcases high-quality research from our institution and beyond. For the inaugural edition however, we will only be accepting submissions from the Wake Forest community. 

Submitted articles will be peer-reviewed for strong methodology, clear and communicative technical writing as well as meaningful contribution to the collective body of knowledge. Importantly, we actively encourage the submission of content relevant to the community even if it does not fit one of the categories listed in the author guidelines

Submission deadline for the third volume is November 15, with publication planned for March 2017. Subsequent issues are planned to follow yearly. At this time we ask that authors please refrain from submitting to the WFJSM work which they have published or hope to publish elsewhere. This practice will ensure that authors’ works, in this or other journals, meet the standards regarding duplicate publications that are considered best practices in scientific publishing.

Both students and faculty will staff the journal. Established professionals will be sought for peer-review. Submissions will be accepted from physicians, scientists and students at all levels. If you are interested in serving on journal staff or assisting as a faculty mentor please contact the editorial board at

Thank you for your time. Thank you in advance for your submissions. We look forward to your help and your contributions to make the Wake Forest Journal of Science and Medicine a nationally relevant resource for the medical and scientific community.
