Abstract:

While the visibility of universities__ampersandsign#39; scientific production has been a real concern in emerging countries, including Morocco (PubMed ranked it first in the Maghreb and 5th in Africa), it seems imperative for countries of the Mediterranean area to publish in the language of Shakespeare.

While the visibility of universities__ampersandsign#39; scientific production has been a real concern in emerging countries, including Morocco (PubMed ranked it first in the Maghreb and 5th in Africa), it seems imperative for countries of the Mediterranean area to publish in the language of Shakespeare.

Thus the new reform of medical studies expected for 2015, will anchor the use of English as a tool of communication and research in both electronic and paper publishing.

In addition, educational and practical training of our students and residents, involves the implementation of E-learning and Educational Simulation Centers. Actually the tools and machinery of these centers are available; but require a perfect knowledge of the English language.

For this reason, the Deans of Moroccan faculties of Medicine and Pharmacy are involved in the process of developing a project proposal regulating the access to medical studies in English during part or the entire training curriculum of General Practitioners and Specialists.

In the light of all this, we welcome this initiative of young medical doctor, animated by a desire for diversified learning, and who forged contacts with faculties from different continents, to introduce the culture of medical English at our region and make more visible our medical and biological publications.

With the publication of its first issue, we can already say that a new star is born (Journal of Medical and Surgical Research) and we will do the maximum so that it can live as long as possible.

This linguistic diversity in medical studies and scientific production is the main way for emerging countries to overcome the barrier of globalization.
