Another great resource for researchers, patients, and caregivers.

Mediastinum (ISSN 2522-6711) (MED) is an open access and peer-reviewed medical journal aiming at better understanding and management of mediastinal diseases. It is a professional platform for the sharing of knowledge and experience between interested peers so as to finally benefit the patients.

As a unique journal, it is not limited to diseases primary to this narrow space, but encompasses all disorders related to or affecting the mediastinum (including metastatic lesions from other parts of the body, local manifestation of systemic changes, as well as disease extension from neighboring organs or compartments).

By allocating the most up-to-date clinical and basic research, state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches, and rich material for education, Mediastinum aims to provide high-level evidence and useful resources for all healthcare professionals engaged in delivering quality care to their mediastinal patients. MED is indexed by PubMed/PubMed Central (PMC) and Scopus.

The first cooperation between ITMIG and MED was dated back to 2017. In 2017, ITMIG worked with MED to publish an Abstract Book and a Special Series dedicated to its 2017 Annual Meeting and publish the first case discussion manuscript from its tumor board in the iMDT (International Multidisciplinary Team) corner of MED. With the favourable cooperation experience, both parties have continued the cooperation.
