Continuously published since 1926, Mayo Clinic Proceedings is a peer-reviewed journal, ranked among the top 10% of the 160 clinical journals in the Medicine, General and Internal category. The journal has a distribution of approximately 127,000.

Articles published in peer-reviewed journals have been reviewed by experts in the relevant field to ensure they contain high quality science and valid interpretations. For more discussion, read this article.

Although sponsored by Mayo Clinic, Mayo Clinic Proceedings publishes articles submitted by authors worldwide — approximately 80% of submissions come from non-Mayo authors.

Editor-in-Chief, Karl Nath, M.D., recently published the 2020 Vision for Mayo Clinic Proceedings, recapping some of its history and reminding readers of the diverse and deep content it has provided. In the article, Dr. Nath explains that the "defining nature of the Proceedings, one that will be both sustained and nurtured, reflects and speaks to the heterogeneity in interests and readership that exist in clinical practice, research, and education." 

Several new features were launched in 2019, and 2020 has already seen the launch of another new section "Radiology, Imaging, and Intervention," led by James Andrews, M.D.

The sister journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings: Innovations, Quality & Outcomes, is online-only, open access, and has its own editorial board.

Mayo Clinic Proceedings: Innovations, Quality & Outcomes publishes content focusing on clinical innovations, quality improvement, and optimal outcomes, in medicine and surgery.
