Falling through the cracks

Latest Issue: September 2015

Australian Family Physician aims to provide relevant, evidence-based, clearly articulated information to Australian GPs to assist them in providing the highest quality patient care; applicable to the varied geographic and social contexts in which GPs work and to all GP roles as clinician, researcher, educator, practice team member and opinion leader. All articles are subject to a peer review process before they are accepted for publication. The journal is indexed in MEDLINE, Index Medicus and Science Citation Index Expanded. In addition to editorial, letters and book reviews, articles are published in the following categories:

  • Focus articles – clinical articles commissioned on assessment and management of conditions related to the featured theme of each issue of the journal
  • Clinical articles – Evidence-based review articles and case studies relating to assessment and management of specific symptoms or conditions addressed in general practice
  • Research articles – reports of quality, original research relevant to the needs of Australian GPs
  • Professional articles – Articles on non-clinical topics of relevance to GPs
  • Viewpoint articles – Clearly argued opinion pieces relating to primary care.
