[Purposes] This paper aims to survey the ability and quality statuses of medical journal editors in China, and to investigate their improvement ways. [Methods] Based on competency characteristic research, the key competency characteristics of medical journal editors in China were investigated. From the aspects of qualities, skills, and knowledge, the ability and quality statuses of medical journal editors in China were surveyed. The abilities and qualities needed and to be improved for medical journal editors in China were summarized as well. [Findings] Through surveying the importance and conformity of competency characteristics of medical journal editors in China, the model of medical journal editors in China had been established successfully. The abilities and qualities of medical journal editors in China are generally good, but the editors need to improve their judgment ability, systematic thinking ability, and medical knowledge. [Conclusions] The improvement of ability and quality of medical journal editors in China is a systematic project, which not only requires the efforts, active learning, and practice of medical journal editors, but also depends on the organization, planning, attention, and leadership of relevant management departments. Medical journal offices can transform the competency model into practical tools in order to improve editorial recruitment, talent development, career planning, and performance management. The editors of medical journals should strive to become compound talents with high quality and keep pace with the times, so as to complete the editing work excellently and make medical journals well.
