About the Journal

Journal of Clinical Medicine - Hue Central Hospital (JCMHCH) is pleased to announce its English version (Publication permit 267/GP-BTTTT dated August 4, 2023 by the Ministry of Information and Communications of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam). JCMHCH is proud to be a peer reviewed journal that delivers cutting edge research in various aspects of clinical medicine and other related health sciences.

JCMHCH publishes bi-monthly Vietnamese works and semi-annually English works from all fields of clinical medicine. JCMHCH publishes 8 times a year with the goal of enhancing high quality research publication and promoting innovative research spirit. Our editorial board objectively evaluates all submissions based on their originality, technical rigidity, and relevance to journal scopes.

Aims and Scope

JCMHCH, owned by the Hue Central Hospital, is a peer-reviewed, open access journal on clinical and pre-clinical research. It publishes article types including Research Papers, Case report, Reviews, Editorials, Communications, etc. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

There is, in addition, a unique feature of this journal: it accepts studies showing meaningful but negative results. While there are many journals that focus on clinical studies, only a few of them actively accept negative results. As a result, most negative data end up not being in the public domain even if the data were meaningfully negative and the study well designed. By accepting those negative results, our journal encourages scientists to share those data so that they would not need to repeat the experiments that somebody else has already carried out.
