    The Journal of Laboratory Medicine (LaboratoriumsMedizin) is the official journal of the German United Society for Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (DGKL) and affiliated with the Austrian Society for Laboratory Medicine and Clinical Chemistry (ÖGLMKC).

    Aims and Scope

    The Journal of Laboratory Medicine (JLM) is a bi-monthly published journal that reports on the latest developments in laboratory medicine. Particular focus is placed on the diagnostic aspects of the clinical laboratory, although technical, regulatory, and educational topics are equally covered. The Journal specializes in the publication of high-standard, competent and timely review articles on clinical, methodological and pathogenic aspects of modern laboratory diagnostics. These reviews are critically reviewed by expert reviewers and JLM’s Associate Editors who are specialists in the various subdisciplines of laboratory medicine. In addition, JLM publishes original research articles, case reports, point/counterpoint articles and letters to the editor, all of which are peer reviewed by at least two experts in the field.
