  About the Journal

The Annals of Saudi Medicine is a Bimonthly multidisciplinary medical journal published by the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. We publish scientific reports on human subjects in the form of original articles, brief reports, case reports, and letters. We also accept review articles, special communications and editorials.

All submissions are subject to peer review by the Editorial Board and by referees in appropriate specialties. We will consider for publication manuscripts from any part of the world, but most particularly manuscripts that would be of interest to readers from the Middle East. The journal was first published in 1981 as the King Faisal Specialist Hospital Medical Journal and in 1985, the name was changed to the Annals of Saudi Medicine.

The Annals went from a quarterly to a bimonthly publication in 1988. It was included in the Thomson ISI database beginning in the early 1990s and first received an impact factor in 1995 within the category of general and internal medicine journals. The impact factor ranged between 0.1 and 0.3 for the next decade, doubling in 2006 from the previous year, apparently as a result of listing in the National Library of Medicine PubMed database beginning in 2004. In 2008, the impact factor nearly doubled again to 0.6. The journal’s Article Influence and Eigenfactor scores have also increased in recent years.
