Methods of Information in Medicine

Methods of Information in Medicine publishes international, peer-reviewed, original research articles, reviews, editorials, and letters to the editor. Founded in 1962, it is the oldest and longest running journal in its field. The focus of the journal is on methods in health informatics, including public health and consumer informatics.  We welcome submissions describing novel scientific methods for structuring, integrating, analysing, storing and visualising information as well as methods for system design, implementation and evaluation.


The methods presented should address a clear clinical, public health or patient need and may be rooted in a number of different fields such as ontologies and knowledge modelling, natural language processing, statistics, design science, machine learning and artificial intelligence, multimodal data integration, standardisation, implementation science, and evaluation. Possible application areas include any areas of health informatics such as information systems and services, clinical decision support, consumer health and patient e-services, disease surveillance, and information systems infrastructures in low resource settings.


Submissions regarding bioinformatics, image- and signal processing, medical decision-making theory and pure epidemiologic studies will be excluded as there are other, more suitable, venues for publication of these.
