European Journal of General Practice

The European Journal of General Practice (EJGP) is the official journal of WONCA Europe. It is an Open Access, international, peer-reviewed scientific journal, and is published online (one issue per year) and in print (end-of-year book). 

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. See here for more information.
