The Permanente Journal has unveiled a new website as part of the relaunch of the 26-year-old medical journal, which now focuses on health care delivery science, value-based and high-value care, and applied clinical research.
The new site, now hosted on Atypon’s Literatum platform, offers a visual refresh and several practical enhancements. Readers can:
Locate content relevant to their research and practice more easily. Enhanced search capabilities make it easier to find scholarly articles from the journal’s more than 2 dozen previous volumes.
Identify papers that fall under specific category umbrellas, such as value-based care and integrated care delivery systems, thanks to a new article tagging feature.
In addition, authors will notice an improvement in the speed with which their content is published. “With our new website and improved workflows across all aspects of the editorial and publication processes, we can deliver a higher standard of service to our authors, and produce relevant and timely content more quickly for our readers to enhance patient care and stimulate further translational and applied clinical research,” said G. Richard Holt, MD, editor-in-chief.
