Mission and Scope


The Cooper Rowan Medical Journal (CRMJ) is an open-access, student and faculty co-managed, peer-reviewed journal showcasing scholarly activity by medical students, allied health care students, and residents/fellows. Recognizing the integral role for mentorship in medicine, CRMJ is committed to teaching students the intricacies of the peer-review process under the guidance of dedicated faculty advisers. We welcome original research, reviews, medical education studies, case reports/series, perspectives, and results of quality improvement projects. CRMJ is proudly published by the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University located in Camden, New Jersey. In addition to broadly publishing student-authored biomedical and health-related research, CRMJ also welcomes research that addresses conditions frequently impacting medically underserved patients and focuses on understanding the comprehensive health care systems for underserved populations.


The scope of this journal includes all student and resident/fellow authored biomedical and health-related research. CRMJ also welcomes articles that investigate a disease, condition, treatment, or policy that tends to impact medically underserved patients. As we intend to interpret our scope broadly, we encourage anyone who is interested in submitting an article to contact us (CRJCSM@rowan.edu) to inquire about fit within our mission and scope..
