SAGE Publishing to publish Journal of Palliative Care
- 14 Jul 2017
Academic publisher SAGE Publishing has begun publishing the Journal of Palliative Care (JPC), an international and interdisciplinary outlet for practical, critical thought on palliative care and palliative medicine.
The Centre for Bioethics of the Clinical Research Institute of Montreal originally published JPC, now in its 32nd year. The late Dr. David J. Roy, a renowned international leader in palliative care, founded the Centre in 1976 and the journal in 1985. Dr. Keith M. Swetz, section chief and medical director of palliative care at the Birmingham VA Medical Center, and Associate Professor at the UAB School of Medicine became editor-in-chief as of July 1, 2017.
A quarterly journal, JPC publishes 12 types of papers including reports of original research, opinion papers/commentaries, narratives and humanities works, current reviews, case reports/case series, book reviews, and reports on international activities and comparative palliative care. The journal's editorial board, authorship, readership, and panel of manuscript reviewers is international.
SAGE began publishing JPC with volume 32, which was managed by interim editor, Dr. Robert E. Enck of the University of Tennessee.

BMJ Group set to launch new supportive and palliative care journal
- 22 Dec 2010
Global publisher BMJ Group, UK, is set to launch a new supportive and palliative care journal - BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care. Slated for launch in April 2011, the journal aims to promote a global exchange of research-based evidence and innovative practice across many disciplines and specialties. Dr Bill Noble, Macmillan senior lecturer in palliative medicine at the University of Sheffield, will lead a world-class editorial team that will seek to ensure high standard of practice-changing research and education.
BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care will publish articles that are relevant to clinical practice and clinical service development; including transitional research, clinical trials, epidemiology, behavioural sciences, health service research, reviews, and comment. The journal, which adds to BMJ Group's stable of more than 35 existing specialist titles, is an international peer review journal for clinicians, researchers, and other healthcare workers in clinical services where supportive and palliative care is practised.
The Association for Palliative Medicine of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has officially adopted the title, which will automatically be offered to all its members.
