SQU journal indexed by US National Library of Medicine

MUSCAT: The Sultan Qaboos University Medical Journal (SQUMJ) has been officially indexed by the United States National Library of Medicine for the MEDLINE®/PubMed® database. SQUMJ is an internationally peer-reviewed multidisciplinary medical journal published quarterly. Its aims are: to be an internationally recognised regional medium of biomedical communication; to encourage medical research and publication in Oman, the Gulf and further afield and to create awareness of new developments among health professionals in Oman and beyond. The PubMed® database is the largest repository of life sciences and biomedical articles in the world and comprises more than 26 million citations.
The National Library of Medicine is the largest library in the world and indexes only those journals which meet their rigorous high standards, conform to best practices and consistently publish high-quality scientific content. There are currently only 5,634 journals worldwide indexed for MEDLINE® and SQUMJ is the first journal in Oman to have achieved this milestone. The positive decision of the National Library of Medicine to index SQUMJ is a tremendous achievement for the journal, Sultan Qaboos University and the entire country.
