Tehran University Medical Journal (TUMJ), the first and the oldest monthly medical journal in iran. Published since 1942. The School of Medicine of Tehran University was officially established in 1934. Then, in December 1939, Professor Charles Oberling (1895-1960), the famous French pathologist was appointed as the Dean of Medical, Pharmacy, and Dentistry Schools and a new era of medical education was ushered in. He suggested to the Ministry of Culture's authorities to publish a medical journal; subsequently, the first Persian academic medical journal in Iran was founded and published in 1943. Herein, we present a brief account of this medical journal's foundation as well as biographies of its founders and editorial board. The publication of the first issue of this journal dates back to 1945 (from 62 years ago) as the first scientific journal in Iran. Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) is the oldest and the main university of the country. Our journal is one of the TUMS publications releasing monthly; written in Persian language with English language abstracts and references. The main scope of this journal is basic and clinical medical studies from Iranian and international authors. Editorial Boards of TUMJ are specialists in all fields of basic and clinical medical sciences from all over the world. Nevertheless our target audience includes the entire medical personnel worldwide depending upon their access to the journal and the feasibility for us to place it at their disposal. This is a peer review journal and received articles in our office are approximately 50 per month and about 70% of this number would be rejected.
