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 2015 impact factor of 4.532, ranking it second out of 20 journals in the category "Medical Informatics" and fifth out of 87 journals in the category "Health Care Sciences & Services". The journal was incorporated as JMIR Publications in 2011 and was a cofounder of the Open Access Scholarly Publishers Association.
JMIR Publications has faced criticism for initially using the same editorial board of its main journal for its spin-off journals and for offering a fast-track review pathway for a surcharge. Eysenbach commented that the spin-off journals would eventually have their own boards and that the fast-track option does not affect the quality or integrity of its peer-review processes. As of the end of 2016, all journals had their own editorial boards.
