 Abstract: The Scandinavian Journal of Clinical and Laboratory Investigation is an international scientific journal covering clinically oriented biochemical and physiological research. Since the journal was launched in 1949, it has been a forum for international laboratory medicine, closely related to and edited by The Scandinavian Society for Clinical Chemistry. The journal contains peer-reviewed articles, editorials, invited reviews, and short technical notes. Additionally, several supplements are published each year, consisting of monographs, and symposium and congress reports covering subjects within clinical chemistry and clinical physiology. The short handling time, currently 14-16 weeks from receipt of manuscript to acceptance, guarantees that the journal is at the forefront in the field of clinical and physiological research. The supplements consist of monographs and symposium reports covering clinical chemistry and clinical physiological subjects.
