Invitation to Contribute to ACI eJournal

Antoine Geissbuhler, IMIA President, encourages IMIA members, and the wider international health and biomedical informatics community, to contribute to Applied Clinical informatics (ACI). He writes:

Applied Clinical Informatics (ACI), an official Journal of IMIA, is a peer-reviewed eJournal that can be accessed at www.aci-journal.org With Applied Clinical informatics (ACI) we established an international platform for knowledge sharing between clinical medicine and health IT specialists. We bridge gaps between visionary design and successful and pragmatic deployment. IMIA is very proud to sponsor this new journal and we are hoping to attract submissions and reviews from readers all over the world.

The importance of an international journal dedicated to the application of health information technology at the bedside can not be underestimated. Sharing of knowledge across borders, allowing others to learn from your implementation experiences, and preventing the duplication of errors by sharing lessons learned is critical to better patient care.

We are inviting you and your colleagues to submit your work to Applied Clinical Informatics. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Clinical information systems

  1. Administrative and management systems
  2. eHealth systems
  3. Information technology development and deployment
  4. Evaluation of information technology
  5. Socio-technical aspects of information technology
  6. Health IT training.

Applied Clinical Informatics is using a double-blinded review process to assure that all submissions receive the same unbiased reviews. The average time from submission to final decision was only 59 days for Applied Clinical Informatics in 2010.

To showcase the high quality of ACI – IMIA has made the first issue available for free (>>>). In case you require an extended trial access on pay-per-view articles before you wish to submit a paper via http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/acij or before you subscribe to the eJournal, please do not hesitate to contact andrea.muehl@schattauer.de

Every Wednesday is ACI Day, with the new research articles, reviews, case reports and the latest news.

For further information on this peer-reviewed eJournal, go to www.aci-journal.org
