The Journal of Military, Veteran and Family Health (JMVFH) is the official, scholarly journal of the Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran Health Research (CIMVHR). The Journal aims to maximize the mental, physical and social health and well-being of military personnel, Veterans and their families by publishing world class research to a broad international and multidisciplinary readership of researchers, health practitioners, administrators, and policy makers.

JMVFH provides a forum for a uniquely Canadian perspective on contemporary issues affecting military-Veteran populations and their families that supports evidence-based policy development at home and sound comparative policy analysis with international collaborators. The broad scope of research published in JMVFH enables researchers working in specific disciplines to engage with a variety of professional perspectives and brings the broader research and policy communities together around cross-disciplinary themes and research questions. The cutting edge nature of research published in JMVFH enables clinicians working to address particular challenges to establish best practices and share preliminary results from new therapies that will lead to the next great breakthroughs. We believe that this broad-based, collaborative approach is required to address the complex needs of Canada's military and Veteran populations and contribute to international developments in the field.

JMVFH is edited by Alice Aiken and Stéphanie Bélanger, and managed by Mike Schaub.
