The Journal of Clinical Epidemiology is a peer reviewed journal of epidemiology. The journal was originally established as the Journal of Chronic Diseases 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.[citation needed]

Under the editorial leadership of Alvan Feinstein and Walter O. Spitzer, the title of the journal was changed to the Journal of Clinical Epidemiology with the January 1988 issue.[2] The current editors are André Knottnerus (Netherlands School of Primary Care Research) and Peter Tugwell (University of Ottawa).[3]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2013 Impact Factor of 5.478, ranking it 6th out of 160 journals in the category "Public, Environmental & Occupational Health" and 1st out of 85 journals in the category "Health Care Sciences & Services".[4]
