The Medical Council of India (MCI) In one of its recent announcements on 12th Feb 2020 has amended the “Minimum Qualifications for Teachers in Medical Institutions Regulations, 1998 ” to add a list of medical databases and indexes for aspiring medical professionals to publish their articles. We are very happy to say that this announcement includes DOAJ as one of the options along with other medical databases like Medline, PubmedCentral, etc.
DOAJ is a dynamic growing index and currently lists about 1295 quality, peer reviewed, open access medical journals of which approximately 800 journals do not have any article processing charges. Follow the simple steps below to find the journals in DOAJ:
Step 1 – click on the search button https://doaj.org/search
Step 2 – choose “journals” on the left facet
Step 3 – Under Subject choose Medicine [ 785] or Medicine (general) 
Step 4 (optional) – Click on “NO” under APC to find journals that do not have APC
