The Journal of Medical Internet Research is a peer-reviewed open-access medical journal established in 1999 covering eHealth and "healthcare in the Internet age". The editor-in-chief is Gunther Eysenbach. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2010 impact factor of 4.663, ranking it first out of 22 in the category "Medical Informatics" and 2nd among 71 journals in the category "Health Care Sciences & Services".[1]


Due to the growth in influence and submissions, and to make the operations more sustainable and professional, the journal was incorporated as JMIR Publications in 2011. Shortly after incorporation, several spin-off journals were launched. As of April 2015, JMIR Publications publishes 15 journals[2] and produces and organizes the annual Medicine 2.0 World Congress series and is curator of the Medicine 2.0 Social Network. JMIR is a founding member of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association.
