Annals, Academy of Medicine, Singapore

The Annals is the official medical journal of the Academy of Medicine, Singapore.

Established in 1972, the monthly peer-reviewed journal seeks to publish novel findings from clinical research and medical practices that can benefit the medical community.

It serves the various specialties that form the membership of the Academy, covering healthcare challenges, clinical management, medical education, emerging disease trends and scientific breakthroughs.

Call for Papers

The Annals welcomes manuscripts that advance the science and practice of medicine in these domains: ageing, chronic medical diseases and digital technology.

The rapidly ageing population and rising burden of chronic diseases worldwide invite new approaches towards health promotion and disease prevention. A healthcare system that is more data-driven and patient-centric, leveraging on technology and digital solutions, will be areas warranting further research.

Annals, Academy of Medicine, Singapore (AAMS) is referenced in Index Medicus.
