Since 1906, the West Virginia State Medical Association (WVSMA) has published the West Virginia Medical Journal (WVMJ), a clinical, peer-reviewed medical journal. The WVMJ strives to publish clinical articles of interest and within the understanding of physicians in every area of practice.

Submissions to the WVMJ are now processed online through Scholastica peer-review software. Authors of approved clinical articles may choose publication in our printed Journal or our online Journal https://wvmj.scholasticahq.com/. Our online journal is an open access publication. Open Access (OA) is the free, immediate, online availability of research articles combined with the rights to use these articles fully in the digital environment. Open Access accelerates research through unencumbered accessibility.

Articles published in the WVMJ OA are indexed by Google Scholar and CrossRef. Articles published in the printed WVMJ are indexed by PubMed.
