The American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) is expanding its journal portfolio and actively recruiting Editors in Chief to launch and lead two new open access journals. Set to launch in early 2023, the journals CHEST Pulmonary and CHEST Critical Care will contain specialized research in pulmonary and critical care medicine.
Similar to the flagship journal, the journal CHEST®, CHEST Pulmonary, and CHEST Critical Care will accept submissions of original research, reviews, case reports, and commentaries, with enhanced emphasis on medical decision-making, implementation science, health services delivery, quality improvement, cost-effectiveness analysis, policy reports, study design and more.
CHEST Pulmonary will be a source of clinically relevant research and patient management guidance for pulmonary and sleep medicine clinicians, focusing on topic areas including: Asthma, Biotechnology, Chest Infections, COPD, Diffuse Lung Disease, Education and Clinical Practice, Genetic and Developmental Disorders, Imaging, Pathology, Physiology, Pulmonary Vascular Disease, Sleep, and Thoracic Oncology.
CHEST Critical Care will be a source of clinically relevant research and patient management guidance for critical care medicine clinicians, focusing on topic areas including ARDS/Acute Lung Injury; Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation; Education; ICU Infections; Mechanical Ventilation; Nonpulmonary ICU Care; Post-ICU Care; and Sepsis.
Interested applicants should be recognized experts in pulmonary, critical care, or sleep medicine and have a background in the development of impactful clinical research, systematic reviews, or guidelines.
In addition, the ideal candidate would have prior experience on an editorial board or as a peer reviewer for a journal and would be a practicing physician (MD or DO) to ensure all content in CHEST Critical Care and CHEST Pulmonary is clinically relevant and impactful.
