The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association

The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association is a peer-review general medical journal published online and on paper. It is PubMed-indexed.

The paper version is distributed to medical doctors, medical students, libraries, hospitals, and most medical institutions in Norway. The online journal follows an open-access model and generates a average of 26.000 pageviews a day (Jan. - June 2019). 

Publication language is mainly Norwegian, with an English summary published online for all scientific articles, but a growing number of articles are translated from Norwegian to English and published in full text in both languages. The Journal follows the recommendations of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and is the official journal for members of The Norwegian Medical Association.
