[Purposes] We aim to understand the state of website construction of domestic medical journals and propose some suggestions to perfect their construction. [Methods] Using journal searching function of CQVIP, we got 202 core medical journals of IF≥1 in 2016. Then we searched for these journals to collect their websites. Among them, 173 journals had official websites, which were surveyed and analyzed statistically. [Findings] The popularity of online submitting and editing systems is 94.2%; 75.7% of journals upload full texts and 76.3% of them offer full-text open access (OA) in different manners. Nevertheless, some weakness is revealed in the construction of some columns, such as forum (4.6%), WeChat/MicroBlog (44.5%), focus/highlights (30.6%), E-mail Alert (37.0%), RSS (30.1%), continuing education (9.2%), audio/video/animation (31.2%), and English version (22.5%). [Conclusions] Chinese medical journals should enhance the construction of website, especially in the exploration of suitable OA strategies, building of on-line community-type communication platform, value-added development of journal content, combination of new media and multi-media techniques, and internationalization.
