Dr Catherine Walshe, Editor-in-Chief, Palliative Medicine. The University of Manchester, UK
Did you know that Palliative Medicine is the official research journal of the EAPC? This brings benefits for EAPC members, who are able to access cutting edge palliative care research more easily.
First, EAPC members can purchase their own subscription to the journal at reduced price. Second, EAPC members and registered users of the EAPC website can access the ‘editor’s choice’ paper from each edition of the journal free of charge via the EAPC website. Third, any EAPC originated papers are also available to readers on the EAPC website.
We’ll be alerting people to each new paper placed on the website through this blog, so do keep an eye out for papers that might interest you.
If you’re not familiar with the journal, it’s a peer reviewed research journal. Our aim is to publish the highest quality empirical research and reviews in the field of palliative care to inform clinical care, policy, research methods and theory. We invite articles to be submitted on any topic of interest to palliative care, from any country. It is a highly rated journal, with an impact factor of 2.515, and it is well ranked in the relevant categories: 13 out of 72 in Health Care Sciences & Services; 31 out of 153 in Medicine, General & Internal; and 35 out of 142 in Public, Environmental & Occupational Health.
Palliative Medicine also strives to communicate with its readers, and we invite you to interact with the editors via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if you ‘like’ or ‘follow’ the journal that is an easy way to be updated on the latest articles we’ve published.
