About the Journal

History Journal

Jurnal Profesi Medika: Jurnal Kedokteran dan Kesehatan was born in 2007 with a printed version of p-ISSN 0216-3438. In total, 11 volumes have already been produced. In his journey, the Editor Chief carried out the following tasks: Nurfitri Bustamam, M.Kes, M.PdKes, and Dr. Marlina Dewiastuti, M.Kes. Since 2017, under the coordination of Andri Pramesyanti Pramono, Ph.D.

In 2018, we submitted an electronic version of the ISSN and received an e-ISSN number 2621-1122. Since then, we have transformed into electronic scientific journals and want to improve their management according to existing standards. Our first reference point was the National Journal accreditation guidelines. We have adjusted all aspects of the guideline, from involving competent reviewers and partners to providing valuable input for each published manuscript, likewise, with the addition of several rules, such as adjusting the article template (3 changes were made in 2007, 2017, and 2020) having a DOI prefix of 10.33533 (in January 2019), completing the writing style, adding rules for retraction and text withdrawal, in collaboration with the national tobacco control.

Based on significant changes from 2018, we are successfully nationally indexed in SINTA 2 and also indexed in DOAJ. In December 2019, we started using various platforms for journal promotion to improve the quality of our services. In 2023, we adjusted to several template criteria to compete globally. In September 2023, we already indexed in EMBASE by Elsevier and several other strategies, such as involving external editors and international reviewers. Not to mention that I have been using English for all OJS systems and published articles since then. Jurnal Profesi Medika: Jurnal Kedokteran dan Kesehatan can become a reputable journal in medicine and health internationally.
