Introduction to MJEM

Emergency medicine is one of the fastest growing specialties in Malaysia and also in the South East Asian region. To ensure that the growth of the specialty is sustainable, the specialty should produce good researches using local South East Asian data. Having such a platform for these researches will encourage more publications in clinical and administrative emergency medicine.

These includes traumatology, emergency and critical care ultrasound, toxicology, pre-hospital care, paediatric emergency medicine, geriatric emergency medicine, palliative care, hyperbaric medicine, disaster medicine, simulation medicine and administration. The Malaysian Journal of Emergency Medicine or MJEM is created to provide such a platform for South East Asian and also other international emergency medical services alike. It is an open access on line peer reviewed journal.

This journal features original articles, case reports, short communications, commentaries and letters to editor. Manuscripts can be submitted on line using the methods described in the submission section.
CHIEF EDITOR: Associate Professor Dr Mohd Idzwan Zakaria



We are creating a new platform for authors to send in images related to the practice of emergency medicine. These images can be consented photograph of the patients, radiology images or any related material to the emergency medicine case. The images have to be consented and approved for publication by the patients, original and have not been published elsewhere. The images and their explanations will be double blindly reviewed and will be shown on the front page of the website. You can submit your images via the Submission page (need to register).

More information can be found in the Author guidelines.
