The fight against cancer is the search for the Holy Grail of medicine. Almost everyone will be affected at some point in their lives, either personally or by proxy through a loved one. So it’s no surprise that Big Data is being put to use in many ways to aid the task of improving care, identifying risks and hopefully eventually producing cures.

Informatics for Health & Social Care promotes evidence-based informatics as applied to the domain of health and social care. It showcases informatics research and practice within the many and diverse contexts of care; it takes personal information, both its direct and indirect use, as its central focus.
The scope of the Journal is broad, encompassing both the properties of care information and the life-cycle of associated information systems.
Official Journal of the European Federation of Medical Informatics (EFMI).
The Journal of Biomedical Informatics (formerly Computers and Biomedical Research) has been designed to reflect a commitment to high-quality original research papers, reviews, and commentaries in the area of biomedical informatics. Although we publish articles motivated by applications in the biomedical sciences (for example, clinical medicine, health care, population health, imaging, and translational bioinformatics), the journal emphasizes reports of new methodologies and techniques that have general applicability and that form the basis for the evolving science of biomedical informatics.
Knowledge on health and medical informatics in developing countries is scarce. This health informatics journal has therefore been launched to focus on and promote research, experience and discussions related to health informatics in developing countries. Authors from developing countries are particularly encouraged to contribute in this area.
JAMIA is AMIA's premier peer-reviewed journal for biomedical and health informatics. Covering the full spectrum of activities in the field, JAMIA includes informatics articles in the areas of clinical care, clinical research, translational science, implementation science, imaging, education, consumer health, public health, and policy.
The Online Journal of Nursing Informatics (OJNI) is a free, international, professional, refereed publication that focuses on nursing informatics in all practice settings. OJNI is committed to addressing the theoretical and practical aspects of nursing informatics as it relates to the art of nursing.
Interest in informatics as a specialty in the health sciences disciplines reflects the central role that information collection, analysis, and utilization now play in the healthcare sector. New public health threats such as bioterrorism and flu pandemics will demand an improved infrastructure for disseminating information about best practices. The Online Journal of Public Health Informatics (OJPHI) strives to satisfy the growing need for a public health informatics knowledge portal by practitioners, researchers, educators, and policy makers.
Perspectives in Health Information Management is a scholarly, peer-reviewed research journal whose mission is to advance health information management practice and to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration between HIM professionals and others in disciplines supporting the advancement of the management of health information.
As the Official eJournal of IMIA and AMDIS, the online journal ACI publishes approximately 100 peer-reviewed articles per year. It aims to establish a platform that allows sharing knowledge between clinical medicine and health IT specialists as well as bridging gaps between visionary design and successful and pragmatic deployment.
Artificial Intelligence in Medicine publishes original articles from a wide variety of interdisciplinary perspectives concerning the theory and practice of artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, human biology, and health care.
We live in a time when it is widely recognized that scientific collaborations across traditional disciplines can yield exponential gains through synergy. Cancer research is currently benefiting from advances in many fields, including biology (genomics and proteomics), physical chemistry (mass spectrometry and radio imaging), computer science and biostatistics (machine learning, artificial intelligence), and many others. Medical informatics is a field nearly as wide that includes patient information systems and related critical components of information management in the information age.
To encourage the development of formal computing methods, and their application in biomedical research and medical practice, by illustration of fundamental principles in biomedical informatics research; to stimulate basic research into application software design; to report the state of research of biomedical information processing projects; to report new computer methodologies applied in biomedical areas; the eventual distribution of demonstrable software to avoid duplication of effort; to provide a forum for discussion and improvement of existing software...
Computers in Biology and Medicine is a medium of international communication of the revolutionary advances being made in the application of the computer to the fields of bioscience and medicine. The Journal encourages the exchange of important research, instruction, ideas and information on all aspects of the rapidly expanding area of computer usage in these fields.
Computers Informatics Nursing (CIN) has been at the interface of the science of information and the art of nursing, publishing articles on the latest developments in nursing informatics, research, and educational technology. CIN connects you with colleagues as they share knowledge on implementation of electronic health records systems, design decision-support systems, incorporate evidence-based healthcare in practice, explore point-of-care computing in practice and education, and conceptually integrate nursing languages and standard data sets.
Health and Technology is the first truly cross-disciplinary journal on iHealth and Technology is the first truly cross-disciplinary journal on issues related to health technologies addressing all professions relating to health, care and health technology.
The journal constitutes an information platform connecting medical technology and informatics with the needs of care, health care professionals and patients. Thus, medical physicists and biomedical/clinical engineers are encouraged to write articles not only for their colleagues, but directed to all other groups of readers as well, and vice versa.
International Journal of Health Geographics is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal fully dedicated to publishing quality manuscripts on all aspects of geospatial information systems and science applications in health and healthcare.
