International Journal of Medical Sciences and Research (IJMSNR) journal is a peer-reviewed, referred, quarterly and online international journal. [1] IJMSNR journal was started and established in June and it had published its first issue in the month of July – September 2021 from Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India.  It was indexed in International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) [2], Linking ISSN (ISSN-L): 2583-0996 [3] and started its journey of publication from July-September 2021 onwards. IJMSNR is an international peer-reviewed quarterly published interdisciplinary biomedical and healthcare online journal.  IJMSNR journal accepts papers that will be undergone a double peer-review process method contacted under the editorial board reviewers. [4] The IJMSNR journal system primarily aims to bring out the scientific research endowment from academia, faculties, health practitioners, research scholars, Bachelors, Masters, Ph.D., Post-Doc students of medical, nursing, pharmacy, allied health sciences, biomedical sciences, and all other scientific disciplines.

Overview of International Journal of Medical Sciences and Nursing Research (IJMSNR)

Our journal is basically publishing the articles related to medical, nursing, pharmacy and other sciences.  The LOGO of the IJMSNR journal as shown in Figure – 1.

IJMSNR is Abstracting and Indexing of its article’s information: [6]

This journal is uploading its published articles in the well-known data bases like Google Scholar [7], Index Copernicus [8], CrossRef [9], Academia [10], Indian Citation Index [11], Advanced Scientific Index [12], EuroPub [13], IJI Factor Indexing [14], ResearchBib [15], Eurasian Scientific Journal Index [16], CiteFactor [17], WorldCat [18], Internet Archive (USA) [19], ROAD – Directory of scholarly open resources [20], Zenodo [21], ICMJE (International Committee of Medical Journal Editors) [22], Scilicit [23], SlideShare [24], KODUS [25], COSMOS [26], Directory of Research Journals Indexing (DRJI) [27], BASE (Bielefeld Academic Search Engine) [28], ResearchGate [29], Scientific Journal Impact Factor (SJIF) [30], Sherpa Romeo [31], Mendeley [32], Dimensions, and Semantic Scholar [33].

Calculation of Journal Impact Factor (JIF) of IJMSNR in the year 2024

Cites in 2024 to items published in:  2023  =  6   Number of items published in:  2023 = 20

                                                                2022  =  2                                                                   2022 = 20

                                                                  Sum =  8                                                                   Sum = 40

The calculation of JIF of IJMSNR  =    Cites to the recent items / Number of recent items

Journal Impact Factor   =   8 / 40   =   0.2

The ICV report for the year 2022 was 84.67. [8] Our journal is accepting research paper now for the month of Jan – Mar 2022.


I have concluded that journal IJMSNR is improve the research idea and paper in the researchers’ community and new research scholars in various specialties.  IJMSNR journal has Journal Impact Factor (JIF) = 0.2 with in a short period of imitation.  Journal indexing with many well-known data bases and deposited the published articles in Internet Archive, Zenodo, Scilicit, and in Dimensions.  IJMSNR journal keep on trying to index with other well-known databases.
