Submission Checklist

The submission deadline is February 10, 2020. Submissions may fall under the categories of Academic Research, Case Reports, Reviews, Commentaries, and News & Letters. 

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary of the UBC Medical Journal (UBCMJ), we are inviting authors to share their research in the upcoming Fall 2020 Fringe issue. Fringe refers to topics outside of the mainstream discourse that are thought-provoking, uncommon, and innovative. For this issue anything goes— the quirkier the better. 

For more information, please visit our Guide to Authors page.
