We are extremely proud to announce the launch of GIN’s 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.

GIN has partnered with Wiley, a knowledge company and global leader in research, publishing and knowledge solutions, on this latest venture. Dedicated to the creation and application of knowledge, Wiley serves the world’s researchers, learners, innovators, and leaders, helping them achieve their goals and solve the world’s most important challenges. “Wiley and GIN share a commitment to the creation and application of knowledge,” said Shawn Morton, Vice President for Partner Publishing at Wiley. “My colleagues and I look forward to the further fulfilment of this shared mission through the launch and development of Clinical and Public Health Guidelines as an open access journal.”

Elaine Harrow, GIN’s CEO says “It gives me great pleasure to announce that after two years of planning we have appointed Dr Iván Flórez, as our first Editor-in-Chief. Ivan is an experienced Paediatrician, with a master’s in clinical Epidemiology, and a Ph.D. in Health Research Methodology from McMaster University. Iván’s current roles include, Professor at the Department of Paediatrics at University of Antioquia, Colombia, and Assistant Professor at McMaster University, as well as being a practising intensive care paediatrician.” He is also the current Leader of the AGREE Collaboration, the Director of Cochrane Colombia, and is a founding member of the Colombia GRADE network. Over the last decade his research has focused on developing methods for improving practice guidelines and evidence synthesis methods and implementation.

Iván commented, “I feel incredibly honoured as the Editor-in-Chief to announce the launch of ‘Clinical and Public Health Guidelines.’ Our journal, the first of its kind, aims to advance guideline science globally. It will serve as a robust platform for guideline developers, researchers, implementers, and users. Our goal is to foster discussions that enhance guidelines, bridge the gap between evidence and healthcare, and ultimately, improve outcomes for patients and populations.”

GIN Chair Zac Munn added, “We are excited to launch this much needed new journal from the Guidelines International Network. This journal will be the new scientific home for all things related to the prioritisation, development, implementation and evaluation of guidelines. The launch of this journal will create a forum to debate and advance the science and impact of guidelines internationally and is an important milestone in the history of guidelines in health and beyond.”
