At the recent GIN conference in Glasgow, we launched our new open access journal – Clinical and Public Health Guidelines; the only peer-reviewed, international journal dedicated to the science and methodology of planning, developing, adapting and implementing guidelines.

We are now open for submissions and will welcome all research study types related to guidelines development and implementation methods. This includes clinical, public health or health systems guidelines that meet the Guidelines International Network (GIN) standards for Guidelines.

Shared knowledge really can drive meaningful change and improve global health, and the published research will be freely available to everyone, everywhere

As the journal gathers momentum, we are now looking to build the Journal’s peer reviewers database.  We are therefore, looking for people within the GIN community that could help in the growth in the journal by providing their expertise as peer-reviewers of manuscripts.

As a reminder, Clinical and Public Health Guidelines is considering Guidelines research and Guidelines. Guidelines research products include all research study types related to guidelines development and implementation methods, including original studies of any design, including primary and secondary studies, aiming to answer relevant research questions that will contribute to the science of guidelines. Guidelines manuscript include protocols of guidelines, rapid, full, adapted, updated, or living Guidelines. For more information about the type of articles considered please visit our website.

If you think this is something you would be interested in, we would love to hear from you and with your consent, add you to our database by completing this google form which will allow us to collect basic information about you and your expertise. Please note that completing the form does not mean that you are accepting to review manuscripts or guidelines. The Journal will invite potential reviewers for specific manuscripts or guidelines based on their expertise and invitees will decide to accept or decline any invitation when invited. Peer reviewers time is valuable for us. We expect to invite interested reviewers no more than once or twice per year and would love to have the support of the GIN community in this crucial task!
