From the editors of our society’s journal, the Journal of Participatory Medicine:

As we close out Volume 2 of JoPM, we’re pleased to look back at how the journal has grown.

  • We published a total of 23 articles in 2010.
  • We published our first two podcasts.
  • In mid-September, we moved to a new publishing platform and began tracking our readership.
