Manuscripts should demonstrate achievement of one or more of the four Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Competencies, and may also involve the education of other health care professionals, but pharmacy and osteopathic medicine must be key players in these innovative, collaborative educational programs.
Manuscripts must follow the submission requirements (e.g., abstract, length) of either AJPE or JAOA. All selected papers will undergo the peer review process and are subject to the approval of the editors of both journals. Papers accepted for publication will be published in one of these two journals, currently planned for late summer or fall 2016.
Interested groups should direct questions and submit their manuscripts for consideration via e-mail with the subject line “JAOA-AJPE interprofessional education” to either AJPE or JAOA. Submissions are due Monday, Feb. 1, 2016.
