About the Journal

The Journal of Medicine, Humanity and Media (JMHM)


The Journal of Medicine, Humanity, and Media ((JMHM)) is a pioneering interdisciplinary publication that fosters the convergence of medical science, humanities, and media studies. We aim to shape and influence the discourse surrounding health, medicine, and media by providing a unique platform that encourages a dialogue between these seemingly disparate but increasingly interconnected fields.

JMHM is committed to publishing original research, comprehensive review articles, commentaries, and thought-provoking essays that enhance our understanding of health and illness narratives, patient experiences, and the societal implications of medical technology and media.

Open Access Policy

We strongly believe in the democratization of knowledge, thus, all articles published in the JMHM are freely accessible online. Our open access policy allows for unrestricted access to and dissemination of published articles, ensuring the widest possible reach and impact.

Focus and Scope

Our focus is on fostering interdisciplinary research that intersects medicine, humanities, and media studies. We aim to highlight research that explores the impact of media on health perceptions, patient experiences, healthcare policy, medical ethics, and the public understanding of medicine.
