JMIR Publications is a mission-driven (rather than profit-driven) publisher which is strongly rooted in academia and which was founded by Prof. Gunther Eysenbach to advance the fields of eHealth, participatory medicine and related emerging areas at the intersection of medicine and technology, and to give these emerging fields credibility. Dissatisfied with the status quo of scholarly publishing, he also wanted to disrupt and innovate in scholarly publishing.
JMIR Publications is the leading ehealth publisher, advancing progress in the health, engineering and social sciences to ultimately help people to live happier and healthier lives using technology.
JMIR Publications helps innovators in the health technology space to collaborate and to disseminate their innovations, ideas, and research results to the widest possible audience, in a timely manner, adding value to the quality of the work and adhering to the highest ethical and quality standards.
We achieve this by using the Internet and the latest available technologies as well as by producing conferences and social media, and other innovative knowledge translation products. We also innovate in the scholarly communication space itself, experimenting with new business models, new models of peer-review and dissemination, and new technologies.
