Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
|Journal of Clinical Epidemiology|
Abbreviated title (ISO 4)
|J. Clin. Epidemiol.|
The Journal of Clinical Epidemiology is a peer reviewed journal of Epidemiology that promotes the quality of clinical and patient-oriented health services research through the advancement and application of innovative methods of :
- Conducting and presenting primary research;
- Synthesizing research results;
- Disseminating results; and
- Translating results into optimal clinical practice;
- With special attention to the training of new generations of scientists and clinical practice leaders.
The journal was first published in 1955 as a follow-up to Harry S. Truman's 1951 Presidential Task Force on national health concerns and the subsequently written Magnuson Report. This journal aimed to discuss chronic diseases and how they affected all ages, rather than merely the elderly. Furthermore, consistent with the epidemiological transition model, the landscape of the United States' healthcare woes transformed from primarily infectious disease mortality to mortality induced by chronic diseases.
