We’re proud to announce the launch of the College’s new journal Paramedicine in what is a major step forward for the profession’s research globally.
College CEO John Bruning said the launch was another milestone in our continued commitment to leading and shaping the ongoing development of paramedicine.
“As a paramedic-led publication that spans all dimensions of our professional practice and is comprised of some of the world’s leading paramedicine academics and researchers, we are taking ownership of our research space, empowering our profession, and ensuring greater research exposure and visibility.”
Paramedicine will advance and transform the discipline of paramedicine through high-quality, evidence-based research, and inspire robust discussion, encourage innovative thinking, and inform the profession’s leadership. It aims to create a connected discourse that spans paradigms, methodologies and methods for the advancement of the profession, the public it serves, the systems it connects to, and the people tasked with enacting that service.
The College is pleased to welcome the Paramedic Chiefs of Canada (PCC) as journal partner and the McNally Project for Paramedicine Research as journal associate in furthering the research outcomes and evidence base in this important space.
Formerly the Australasian Journal of Paramedicine, the new journal will both define and support the future of paramedic practice and will be the official publication of both the College and the PCC.
The bi-monthly, open-access, peer-reviewed Paramedicine journal will publish research from any country engaged in any area of paramedicine, including but not limited to clinical care, models of practice, operations, patient safety and clinical quality, leadership, education, aeromedical and retrieval practice, tactical paramedicine, and community paramedicine. It is published online in partnership with the renowned Sage Publishing.
Editor-in-Chief Associate Professor Paul Simpson is flanked by an international team of Deputy Editors comprised of Professor Julia Williams (UK), Associate Professor Walter Tavares (Canada), Dr Alan Batt (Canada) and Dr Kathryn Eastwood (Australia). Supporting the editorial leadership team is a diverse Associate Editorial Panel consisting of 28 researchers, academics and paramedics from nine countries.
We encourage paramedics to join us in publishing what we aim to be the world’s preeminent paramedicine research journal. If you’re interested in submitting your research, head to: https://journals.sagepub.com/home/PAM.
There is also a Paramedicine YouTube channel for Paramedicine where will upload author video abstracts that Sage Publications will embed.
