History of Journal

The Siriraj Medical Journal is a double-blinded peer-reviewed, an open access scholarly journal that has been published by the Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital, at Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand. Since 1948, the journal has been introduced to the academia under the name of “Siriraj Hospital Gazette”. In 2007, the journal had been converted into English version and the title was changed to “Siriraj Medical Journal”. The title of the journal (Siriraj) is quite well known both in Thailand and in the East Asia region as it’s the name of the oldest and biggest medical school in Thailand.  It is named after the king's 18-month-old son, Prince Siriraj Kakudhabhand, who had died from dysentery a year before the opening of the hospital. The medical school was established two years later in 1890. The SMJ has published more than 70 issues continuously for the past 70 years. (frequency 10-12 articles per issue).
