SMU Medical Journal is biennial peer reviewed ejournal* published under the aegis of Sikkim Manipal University. Prime focus of the Journal is to publish articles related to research in Medical Sciences  in  Medical, Experimental. and  Allied branches (Nursing, Physiotherapy and Biotechnology). A fair number of academics and health care workers undertake small research projects to understand some problems that are confined to the field area they work, but they find it difficult to convince the world at large the significance they feel about it. This Journal provides the platform with aim of helping students, academics and researchers in the field of bio-medical science to project their findings even though they may be feasibility studies, may be limited due to lack of appropriate sample size or lack of sophisticated instrumentation, show negative results or P values are not significant**. This journal publishes original research work (authentication of the data provided may be asked for). All manuscripts are subjected to a review process initially by an assigned reviewer then the editorial board.
