More information on the European Journal of General Practice (EJGP).
The EJGP publishes original research papers, review articles and clinical case reports on all aspects of primary care medicine (family medicine, general practice), providing new knowledge on medical decision-making, healthcare delivery, medical education, and research methodology.
Areas covered include primary care epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, pharmacotherapy, non-drug interventions, multi- and comorbidity, palliative care, shared decision-making, inter-professional collaboration, quality and safety, training and teaching, and quantitative and qualitative research methods.
The EJGP accepts original research papers, review articles and clinical case reports. Although the journal focuses on articles that provide or discuss new evidence underpinning the daily work of the practicing family physician and the primary care team, we welcome contributions from other disciplines, including health sciences and social sciences.
The EJGP respects regional differences in health care systems, cultural backgrounds, and societal and economic development stages. It welcomes manuscripts from all parts of Europe. Manuscripts from other parts of the world will be assessed for their relevance to European primary care.
