  • More than 20,000 monthly accesses
  • The only open access journal in the field of predictive, preventive and personalized medicine
  • Leading the paradigm change from reactionary medicine to patient-focussed PPPM
  • Official journal of the European Association for Predictive, Preventive & Personalised Medicine

The paradigm change from providing delayed reactionary medicine to predictive, preventive and personalized medicine (PPPM) is a leading global challenge in the 21st century. In order to achieve this shift in focus, it is important to facilitate communication among professionals, including clinicians, biotechnologists, computer scientists, healthcare providers, policy-makers and educators. The aim of EPMA Journal is to provide such professionals with open access to cutting edge research and expert viewpoints to help inform clinical practice and support the move towards predictive, preventive and personalized medicine.

The EPMA Journal provides insights, strategy and solutions to growing healthcare problems across the clinical spectrum, such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurological disease, nutrition and sports medicine. While any one (or more) of predictive, preventive and personalized medicine can be the focus of manuscripts submitted for consideration in the journal, authors are encouraged to include reference to the current state or needs of the field in the other areas as well.

The EPMA Position Paper on the European programme “Horizon 2020” (http://www.epmajournal.com/content/5/1/6) provides a global overview of the challenges related to medical services and presents a consolidated position of PPPM professionals towards providing long-lasting strategies for scientific and technological progress in medical services and health care-related programmes.
