Wolters Kluwer, Health announced today that the Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research & Practice, the newest journal of the International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS), will be published under the Lippincott portfolio.
The Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research & Practice is an open access journal focused on the growing body of research in the field of psychosocial oncology. The journal publishes articles reporting on clinical research examining psychosocial and behavioral interventions in oncology settings, research on the implementation of psychosocial and behavioral interventions in routine clinical practice and their impact on outcomes.
Building on the growing strength of research in the field of psycho-oncology internationally, this exciting, new, open-access journal aims to promote dissemination of the highest quality up-to-date research relevant to improving clinical practice in cancer care globally, says Brian Kelly, Co-Editor-in-Chief. This could be a game changer in accelerating the rate of dissemination and uptake of new and innovative psychosocial interventions relevant to a global audience, adds Linda Carlson, Co-Editor-in-Chief.
The Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research and Practice will include reports on pragmatic clinical trials, qualitative research, systematic reviews, survivorship research and care, psychosocial oncology research and practice in developing countries, innovative research methods and research into global and regional health disparities as they relate to psychosocial oncology care and services.
The Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research & Practice is an essential resource for disseminating updated and multidisciplinary clinical practice and research in psycho-oncology, said Maria Die Trill, IPOS President. Easier access to clinical research publications through open-access papers will provide professionals in developing countries with a significant source of knowledge where accessing subscription-based journals is often difficult. Together with Wolters Kluwer, the journal´s experienced co-editors, and our international editorial board we will assure continued excellence.
The journal is now open for manuscript submissions. For more information visit: https://www.editorialmanager.com/jporp/default.aspx.
