Current Medical Research and Opinion (CMRO) is a MEDLINE-indexed, international journal that publishes research focused on new and existing drugs and therapies, best practices in patient care, developments in diagnostic medicine and medical technology, and innovations in medical and scientific publishing.

The journal aims to be a platform for high-quality, ethically sound clinical research, as well as provide a forum for guidance on effective and transparent publication and communication of medical research.

CMRO welcomes clinically relevant original research and reviews, brief reports, case series, and commentaries across all therapy areas, especially research pertaining to efficacy, equivalence, and safety. The journal also publishes research applicable to standards and practices in medical and scientific publishing. Pharmacoeconomic studies are considered if there is clear clinical relevance. Letters to the Editor and editorials should discuss articles previously published in CMRO.
