Although the original purpose of establishing the Wroclaw Medical University Press in 1976 was to enable the rapid publication of papers and thus scientific development and earning degrees for the University's researchers, we have greatly expanded its field of activity in recent years. At present, our main focus is on promoting the successes of Polish researchers, including those abroad, which is supported by numerous publications in English. We ensure the high scientific and editorial quality of the content we provide, which is intended for both researchers and students.

Accessibility is an important aspect of our activity, which is why we publish many of our materials in an electronic version (open access). International distribution and presence in the most popular scientific databases are no less important in that context.

We publish mainly monographs, English-language scientific journals, academic textbooks, scripts, materials from conferences and symposia, as well as souvenir publications. The authors of our publications are renowned employees of various scientific institutions. Scientific disciplines that we are particularly interested in are: medicine, pedagogy, cognitive and social communication sciences, medical cybernetics and biomedical engineering, as well as automation and robotics.

Our review procedures are in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, we also use anti-plagiarism systems to safeguard the originality of scientific works. We also follow the procedures of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), which indicate the mode of action in cases when scientific dishonesty is discovered in the submitted material, inter alia. We actively combat the lack of respect for good morals in science. The manifestation of such practices is, for example, a situation when the author's participation was negligible or non-existent, and yet that person was a co-author of the publication (guest authorship) or when a person made a significant contribution to the creation of the work and was not disclosed as a co-author (ghostwriting).

The rules for reviewing texts submitted for publication are in line with the guidelines of the Ministry of Education and Science (presently the Ministry of Science and Higher Education) found in the brochure "Dobre praktyki w procedurach recenzyjnych w nauce" (Good practice in review procedures in science).


Our periodicals meet the formal requirements of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education and are indexed in most of the world's major scientific databases (e.g. MEDLINE, Scopus, Index Copernicus, Science Citation Index Expanded, Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition).

We publish periodicals in such fields of science as: medicine, scientific and experimental research ("Advances in Clinical and Experimental Medicine"), materials and composites sciences ("Polimery w Medycynie" (Polymers in Medicine)), dentistry and dental surgery ("Dental and Medical Problems" ).

We handle periodicals comprehensively: we take care of administrative issues, editorial work (also in English) and typography, website maintenance and distribution in Poland and abroad.

We publish all periodicals in an electronic version available online in the open access system.

All articles in our periodicals are assigned a DOI number.


Our publishing house is a place where tradition is combined with modernity. The publishing process involving the works sent to us is a proven system developed over many years. At the same time, we use the latest technological solutions to make the publications we produce - the results of the work of scientists in various fields of medicine - accessible.
