Since its inception in 1992 the IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics has been one of the most visible and valuable “products” that the International Medical Informatics Association (IMIA) provides - not only to its members but to the health and biomedical informatics community at large. Beginning in 2014, the IMIA Yearbook will be published in an online open access format and the print version will be discontinued.
2014, one issue a year ISSN 0943-4747
The IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics appears as a non-profit publication of IMIA, jointly published with Schattauer Verlag. All original papers are peer reviewed and Medline indexed.
Due to changing demands by its readership and new technology and opportunities, the IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics’ content was modified in 2006. These changes broadened the IMIA Yearbook’s readership and made it available to all members of the IMIA family who were able to afford a subscription. In particular, surveys giving overviews of recent developments, and comprehensive introductory reviews on relevant topics of the different fields of health and biomedical informatics, were added as original articles.
