Journal of the Medical Library Association


Delay in JMLA Delivery

The Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) is a trusted source of open-access, peer-reviewed research journals for health sciences librarianship.

With disruptions due to efforts to contain COVID-19, the JMLA team has chosen to delay the distribution of the print April issue. We remain in daily contact with our shipping vendor to review options for delivering issues to our print subscribers.

Note that we also must temporarily institute a hold on claiming any missed issues. Claims for missed issues will be addressed when shipping reliability returns.

Online access will remain available and up-to-date worldwide via the JMLA website as well as on PubMed Central (PMC).

We will update this notice as circumstances warrant.

The Journal of the Medical Library Association (JMLA) is the premier journal in health sciences librarianship. JMLA is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that advances the practice and research knowledgebase of health sciences librarianship.

For Authors and Reviewers

The JMLA publishes full-length research papers, case studies, research reports, and other articles  related to health sciences librarianship. We encourage submissions from all individuals involved in the profession. You can submit an article through our online submission system.
