Warren S. Browner M. D, Executive Editor. The site also contains the

relevance to users of this site.

AIMS AND SCOPE

The American Journal of Medicine -The Green Journal- is an independent,
paid medical journal editorially designed to serve the needs of the
serious internist. The Editorial content of The Green Journal consists
primarily of peer-reviewed, original scientific studies which have direct
clinical significance for physicians whether in academia or
community-based practice, in inpatient or outpatient settings.

Under the direction of the new Editor-in-Chief, Lee Goldman MD, and his
Executive Editor, Warren S. Browner MD, The Green Journal invites
submissions that focus on the following types of manuacripts: cohort
studies and clinical trials performed by multi-center groups in the
various specialties of medicine; phase I, phase II, and phase III studies
performed by cooperative groups including general clinical research
centers; studies of patients with common presentations, especially those
that delineate the natural history of important conditions; careful
physiological or pharmacological studies that explain the body's response
to disease; analytical reviews such as meta-analyses and decision
analyses that use a formal structure to summarize an important foeld. The
Journal also introduces a regular new section, titled, "Physiology in
Medicine" (in collaboration with The American Physiological Association),
and a monthly clinical "Case" in which readers are challenged to e-mail or
fax their diagnoses to the Editorial Office.

The Green Journal also has a newly designed interactive Web site,
AJMSelect, Selections from The American Journal of Medicine, which
contains complete tables of contents, abstracts, selected articles, the
"Case of the Month", and the "Journal Club", in which the Editors present
a monthly expert discussion of an article from the print version for
program directors, chief residents, and journal club leaders. Authors can
also e-mail their manuscripts submissions from this site. The American
Journal of Medicine -The Green Journal - is the Official Journal of the
