The European Journal of General Practice (EJGP) is the official journal of WONCA Europe, the European Society of General Practice/Family Medicine. The EJGP is an Open Access, international, peer-reviewed journal. The journal publish original research papers, review articles and clinical case reports on all aspects of primary care medicine (family medicine, general practice), providing new knowledge on medical decision-making, healthcare delivery, medical education, and research methodology.
Areas covered include: primary care epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, pharmacotherapy, non-drug interventions, multi- and comorbidity, palliative care, shared decision making, inter-professional collaboration, quality and safety, training and teaching, and quantitative and qualitative research methods. The intended audience of the journal are European primary care physicians (family physicians, general practitioners) and students, teachers and researchers in the area of primary care medicine. Although our main focus is on articles that provide or discuss new evidence underpinning the daily work of the practicing family physician and the primary care team, we welcome contributions from other disciplines, including health sciences and social sciences. In its peer review process and publication policy, the EJGP will respect regional differences in health care systems, cultural backgrounds, and stages of societal and economic development. We welcome manuscripts from all parts of Europe. Manuscripts from other parts of the world will be assessed for their relevance for European primary care.
