Aims

Medical Video Journal (MVJ) was founded in 2018 by Bayrakol as is an international, peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, open-access ,dedicated to publishing articles in print and video formats journal. MVJ is published three times a year (in January, May and September). We welcome articles submitted in English. The authors undertake all scientific responsibility for their manuscripts.

Every written manuscript submitted for publication to Medical Video Journal must be accompanied by single or multiple videos. The video can show new techniques, new application of old technique,, procedure, data, discussion, clinical features, diagnostic tests, animated flow diagrams etc. Manuscripts submitted without video file(s) will not be accepted for publication.

Medical Video Journal  uses the video format to increase the understandability and impact of the published research. For example to describe a new surgical procedure in words is good; to show it in pictures is better, but to show the procedure by video is the best as it uses the medium of motion and vision, to explain the intricacies which may be difficult to describe in words or pictures.
