Abstract :

In global era, to enhance the improvement of science and technology, including in medicine, the development ofinternational journal is imperative. However, the term international journal itself is still unclear. It still evokesquestions, such as: What is an international journal? How can a journal be regarded as international? Should the terminternational denote merely to the location of the publisher? Philosophically, an international journal is a journal whichis communicating scientific thinking that can be accepted at international level. Therefore, we should establish criteriafor a journal to be regarded as an international one. These criteria may be as follows: First, it uses internationallanguage(s). English is one of those languages. Second, it has editors with international reputation. Third, it containsscientific materials which are worth to be communicated at international level, due to their strategic and significantcontributions to the development of medical science and technology. Conceptually, these criteria are needed tocharacterize a scientific journal that serves as a tool for international communication. However, operationally, moreelaborations are also needed to translate those criteria into practical level. To be an international journal, Folia MedicaIndonesiana has envisaged a plan to establish cooperation with international publishing houses. Hopefully, this effortmay improve the language, editing, and scientific quality of this medical journal.
