Ochsner Journal

Ochsner’s Publishing Services group produces the Ochsner Journal, a quarterly peer-reviewed medical journal that is indexed at PubMed Central.

All articles in the Ochsner Journal are assigned PubMed ID numbers and are returned in PubMed searches.

We do not charge page publication fees or open-access fees. Internal distribution is primarily via the quarterly electronic table of contents.
