Informatics in Primary Care Journal – Now Full Open Access

Our colleague Prof. Simon de Lusignan, Editor-in-Chief of the journal Informatics in Primary Care, is pleased to announce that the journal is now available fully free-text and open access (a print version will also be available). For further information, see http://hijournal.bcs.org/index.php/jhi/article/view/60/76 This move is being made possible through the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, in the UK.

As noted in the May 2014 IMIA monthly newsletter (http://eepurl.com/Sj141), Simon seeks papers from anyone interested in publishing in the journal. In addition to being a journal of the Health Informatics Specialist Group of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, in the UK, it has for many years been recognised as an official journal of the IMIA Primary Health Care Informatics Working Group (http://www.imia-medinfo.org/new2/node/149). It publishes high-quality research papers, literature reviews and letters from both researchers and practitioners in the fields of health and clinical informatics and its focus is on informatics research from the front lines of health care. However, contributions need not be limited to these areas if they would be of interest; interested authors should contact the editorial team.

Simon is also chair of the IMIA Primary Health Care Informatics Working Group (http://www.imia-medinfo.org/new2/node/149), and the Academic Representative to IMIA of the Department of Health Care Management and Policy, University of Surrey, UK (http://www.imia-medinfo.org/new2/node/327), an IMIA Academic Member.
