Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift

  The Deutsche Medizinische Wochenschrift (German Medical Weekly) is the most important and visible medical periodical in Germany [1]. In the 1980s it was ranked in the 10th place in the world in terms of its international impact factor, but in the succeeding two decades the journal lost this position largely due to two factors: the loss of importance of German language in medical publications and the appearance of a large number of new medical journals in the English language. It is currently published by Georg Thieme Verlag and is an official publication of the German Society for Internal Medicine (DGIM) and the Society of German Naturalists and Physicians (GDNÄ).

The journal was founded in 1875 by Dr Paul Borner.

Editor-in-chief is Dr. Martin Middeke.
