IMMS Journal



Dear readers!


Here is the first in the history, scientific multidisciplinary medical journal IMMS Journal, whose editorial board consists exclusively of students from leading universities of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the CIS and far abroad.


Today we are witnessing the continuous development of the medical sphere through the introduction of new advances in genetics, molecular biology, biophysics, pharmacology, IT technologies. These achievements are being realized in fundamentally new diagnostic and curative approaches requiring highly qualified specialists in each field. Taking into account such strict requirements for modern doctors, we have set clear goals for popularizing scientific activities, in particular the young and future generations.


The relevance of this journal stems from the need to consolidate students interested in scientific products and to unlock their potential, to develop creative skills and, above all, to gain work experience in writing scientific articles.


The first in Kazakhstan and the only one of its kind international multidisciplinary journal "IMMS Journal" is dedicated to the 55th anniversary of JSC "Astana Medical University" and also held in honor of this event «61st International Scientific-Practical Conference of Students and Young Scientists».


The concept of the journal is based on the provision of information link between the section of basic research in the field of new medical technologies and scientific- practical medicine, promotion and dissemination of advanced domestic and foreign scientific medical knowledge.


In order to successfully implement our ideas, we plan to realize the objectives of the editorial board - development of scientific thought and creation of a platform for scientific research in the Republic of Kazakhstan, as well as scientific research and development Medical activities and all their components.


The magazine will cover publications on the themes: «Oncology», «Ophthalmology», «Cardiology», with the subsequent expansion of scientific directions of the editorial office.


Our journal will publish the results of original research aimed at improving the health of the population and the quality of life of patients; analytical articles, lectures, reviews in the field of fundamental developments in physics, chemistry, biology with medicinal-biological orientation; results of  pre-clinical and clinical trials of new medical technologies for diagnosis and treatment.


The magazine is peer-reviewed. The quality of the articles is monitored by a staff of professional reviewers and a professor-curator’s board composed of well-known and respected medical scientists. We invite all our many authors to continue cooperation, wait for interesting and relevant articles.
