Aims and Scope

A Journal of the American College of Preventive Medicine and the
Association of Teachers of Preventive Medicine

The American Journal of Preventive Medicine is the official journal of the
American College of Preventive Medicine and the Association of Teachers of
Preventive Medicine. It publishes articles in the areas of prevention
research, teaching, practice and policy. Original research is published on
interventions aimed at the prevention of chronic and acute disease and the
promotion of individual and community health. Of particular emphasis are
papers that address the primary and secondary prevention of important
clinical, behavioral and public health issues such as injury and violence,
infectious disease, women's health, smoking, sedentary behaviors and
physical activity, nutrition, diabetes, obesity, and alcohol and drug
abuse. Papers also address educational initiatives aimed at improving the
ability of health professionals to provide effective clinical prevention
and public health services. Papers on health services research pertinent
to prevention and public health are also published. The journal also
publishes official policy statements from the two co-sponsoring
organizations, review articles, media reviews, and editorials. Finally,
the journal periodically publishes supplements and special theme issues
devoted to areas of current interest to the prevention community. For
