London Journal of Primary Care (LJPC) is a peer-reviewed Medical Journal with distribution in more than 260 countries and territories. The Journal seeks to be the leading journal in the field of Primary Care, General Practice and Community Medicine, including education for all health care professionals. It aims to publish material of the highest quality reflecting leading edge research and contemporary perspectives.
The LJPC aims to publish rigorous, accessible and entertaining material that will help healthcare professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists, therapists, and medical students in their daily practice, lifelong learning and career development. In addition, it seeks to be at the forefront of the international debate on health. To achieve these aims we publish original scientific studies, review and educational articles, and papers commenting on the clinical, scientific, social, political, and economic factors affecting health. We are delighted to receive articles for publication in all of these categories - from doctors, and other healthcare professionals. We can publish only about 32% of more than 900 articles that we receive each year, but we aim to give quick decisions (see Advice to contributors).
The LJPC is published twice a year both in print and online versions, and has a circulation of about one million worldwide in about 260 countries and territories, of which 25,000 copies are distributed outside Britain. There are also sections to publish student work and issues.
