Amsterdam Medical Student journal (AMSj) is a scientific medical journal enabling medical students to publish their clinical observations, research articles and case reports. The journal was founded by students from the locations Academic Medical Center (AMC) and the VU University Medical Center (VUmc) Amsterdam of the Amsterdam University Medical Centers (Amsterdam UMC), making it the first student-based collaboration between two of the largest medical faculties in the Netherlands. AMSj is a non-profit organization and we strive to inspire students to engage in scientific research. Our goal is to facilitate a unique learning experience for students and help with the development of their academic skills in both writing and reviewing scientific papers. The entire journal is created and published by an enthusiastic editorial board with more than 50 members! A team of students and staff reviewers provide professional peer review and feedback on all submitted papers. If you are a medical student and wish to submit your paper, you are welcome to do so. AMSj is founded in Amsterdam, nevertheless, students from other faculties are also invited to submit their research. Please contact your principal investigator (if applicable) before submitting your paper and carefully read our guidelines for submission. AMSj publishes four editions a year. Every four editions one paper will be selected and named ‘Best manuscript of AMSj’ of that year!”
