Aims & Scope

One of the premier peer-reviewed clinical journals in general and internal medicine, Mayo Clinic Proceedings is among the most widely read and highly cited scientific publications for physicians, with a circulation of approximately 127,000. While the Proceedings is sponsored by Mayo Clinic, it welcomes submissions from authors worldwide, publishing articles that focus on clinical medicine and support the professional and educational needs of its readers.

Continuously published since 1926, the Mayo Clinic Proceedings' content includes Nobel-prize-winning research. The Proceedings has an impact factor of 5.920, ranking it #12 out of 151 journals in the Medicine, General and Internal category, placing it among the best 8%. The Proceedings has experienced numerical increases in its Impact Factor for 15 of the past 17 years.

Mayo Clinic Proceedings welcomes manuscripts that focus on clinical and laboratory medicine, health care policy and economics, medical education and ethics, and related topics:

  • Each monthly issue presents approximately 15 individual articles and features, consisting of original research, reviews, clinical content, editorials, commentaries, brief reports, special articles, and other short items.
  • Among unique articles are Concise Review for Clinicians, Residents' Clinics, and specially commissioned Symposia.
  • My Treatment Approach articles present expert opinion on difficult clinical situations.
  • Consensus Recommendations provide answers to questions not resolved in other published guidelines.
  • The journal carries articles that offer free CME credit from Mayo Clinic.
  • The Proceedings also offers substantial online-only content as well as supplemental material and videos directly related to individual articles.

For authors, the time from receipt of submission to first decision is usually 3 weeks and from acceptance to publication is 12 weeks. Mayo Clinic Proceedings' acceptance rate is approximately 15% to 20%, with more than 80% of manuscripts submitted by non-Mayo authors. For novel, time-sensitive research, an expedited review is available upon request and at the discretion of the Editorial Board.
