• Introducing the Irish Journal of Paramedicine

    by Alan Batt. Last modified: 22/11/15


    I am delighted to announce the launch of the Irish Journal of Paramedicine, with the first issue scheduled for publication in June 2016. Available online at www.irishparamedicine.com

    The Irish Journal of Paramedicine (IJP) is an open access, peer-reviewed, international journal dedicated to advancing and promoting the science of prehospital clinical care, research, education, policy, management and operational delivery, with a focus on Irish research.

    An editorial board has been assembled comprising of experienced and enthusiastic paramedics, physicians, educators and academics.

    The Irish Journal of Paramedicine (IJP) will publish manuscripts from the general prehospital setting that are of various methodologies and lengths. The journal will publish scientifically sound research covering all areas of prehospital-based research, even if they have low study numbers and have found negative outcomes. The editors will consider articles that may not get published in other journals to promote all types of research outcomes for the good of the greater prehospital care community.

    The journal will accept manuscripts covering, but not limited to: clinical practice, prehospital and paramedic education, remote and rural practice, specialised roles, theory and practice of paramedicine, clinical updates, case studies, subject reviews, policy, service delivery, and management.

    One of the main aims of the IJP is to reduce the loss to the research community when studies remain unpublished on the basis of small sample size, limited usefulness, scientific advance or level of interest. The IJP therefore provides a repository for short publications, case series, incremental updates to previous work, results of individual experiments, results of confirmatory and ‘negative’ results, and similar material that currently lacks a suitable repository.
