Deadline Approaching! AJRCCM Call for Papers: Asthma Special Edition

Asthma is an area of high interest for the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Our 2019 special asthma issue had a large influence among the scientific community, with several articles included in the “Highly Cited” category by the Institute for Scientific Information.  

With a 2019 impact factor of 17.45, AJRCCM is increasingly better positioned to raise awareness in asthma research, and thus will publish a new special issue with original articles on topics related to asthma in adults and children in February 2021.  

We invite asthma scientists to submit original papers involving basic and translational research, epidemiological science, clinical trials, and community-based research.

Submissions must conform to the formatting requirements, and include a cover letter mentioning the special asthma-themed issue. Please contact Marc Bendian with questions.

Deadline: Oct. 1, 2020
