The Health Sciences Library recently had the privilege of adding a special new resource to its electronic journal collection – The Medical Student Press Journal, an ambitious creation of the student run Medical Student Press (MSPress). From their website:
“The Medical Student Press provides robust editorial services and multiple online platforms for the publishing projects of medical students. We aim to improve the reach and quality of medical students’ scholarly publications on a global scale.”
Medical students from across the country and world make up the executive team, editorial staff, and blogging staff of MSPress, including 4 of our own (now second-year) medical students; Gabriel Glaun, Aryan Sarparast, Sami Saikaly, and Angela DelPrete.
The journal publishes on a semiannual basis, and accepts a variety of submissions, from honor theses excerpts to creative writing pieces. All submissions are peer-reviewed, and the journal itself is an open-access publication. Volume 1 Number 1 of The Medical Student Press Journal became available in June, and includes an interview conducted by Gabriel, and a research article by third-year student Paul Adedoyin.
You can access The Medical Student Press Journal by visiting their journal website, or by visiting our library website and clicking the link on the front page under “E-Journals” that says “MSPress”.You can also visit the E-Journals page on our website and search by title for “The Medical Student Press Journal” or “MSPress”, as well as by subject for “Medicine” or “Medical Student Journals” to find a link.
Congrats to the students involved! We hope to showcase more student work on our website in the future.
