The mission of Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine (CCJM) is to provide its readers with up-to-date, practical, clinical information relevant to internal medicine, cardiology, and related fields. Consistent with this mission, CCJM focuses on timely review articles and other content that has a continuing-education orientation rather than on original research or case reports. CCJM authors, drawn from Cleveland Clinic and other top medical institutions throughout the world, are asked to identify new findings that are changing the practice of medicine and to advise readers how to apply them in daily patient care. Authors are chosen for their experience, acquired through caring for patients, teaching other physicians, and researching clinical questions.
CCJM is a peer-reviewed medical journal circulated monthly to more than 123,000 physicians—internists (including hospitalists), cardiologists, endocrinologists, diabetologists, and pulmonologists. CCJM is published by Cleveland Clinic.
Readers depend on CCJM for practical clinical information that is immediately applicable to day-to-day practice. The contents are indexed for Index Medicus and MEDLINE on PubMed and are therefore part of the referenced, retrievable medical literature. CCJM’s website is free and open-access. Free continuing medical education credit, offered for select articles in each issue, is certified by Cleveland Clinic Center for Continuing Education.
