In addition to our printed journal, the Emory Undergraduate Medical Review also publishes a complementary open access edition: EUMR Open Access. EUMR Open Access publishes much of the same content as EUMR's traditional print edition, but with a simplified submission process for authors and a much quicker turnaround time. This allows EUMR Open Access to offer (amongst other content) op-eds and commentary pieces on current medical issues not possible with our print timeline.
