About the Journal

Swiss Medical Weekly is an international peer-reviewed medical journal following the Diamond Open Access model (also known as Public Service or Platinum Open Access). Diamond Open Access means that the articles are published fully open access and that the journal does not charge any article-processing charges. Articles are published continuously online.

Founded in 1871 under the name Correspondenz-Blatt für Schweizer Aerzte and later Schweizerische Medizinische Wochenschrift, the Swiss Medical Weekly is a scientific journal with a long tradition. Editorial quality and publication ethics are values that are uncompromisingly upheld by the editorial board. Swiss Medical Weekly is now published by the SMW supporting association (Trägerverein Swiss Medical Weekly SMW).
