Welcome to JMIRx | Bio, a new type of journal which we call a “Superjournal”

Superjournals are “overlay” journals that sit on top of preprint servers such as bioRxiv.

JMIRx | Bio covers all medical subject areas that are currently covered in bioRxiv.

To visit our sister journal JMIRx | Med, which covers medRxiv papers, adding a layer of peer-review and typesetting/publishing them in PubMed Central, click here.

To visit our sister journal JMIRx | Psy, which covers psyRxiv papers, adding a layer of peer-review and typesetting/publishing them in PubMed Central, click here.
