About JMR

The Journal of Medical Regulation (JMR) is a peer-reviewed, editorially independent journal published by the Federation of State Medical Boards. JMR’s scholarly content examines trends and topics of interest to the community of medical regulators in the United States and abroad, who protect the public’s health and safety through the licensing and disciplining of physicians and other health care professionals.

By publishing evidence-based scholarship, JMR helps foster an environment in which the link between regulatory policies and health and social outcomes is better understood, and new knowledge is created upon which to base regulatory decisions. Published continuously since 1913, JMR is committed to disseminating original research designed to enhance public protection.
