Announcement

PCDE’s Journal,  Primary Care Diabetes, has undergone some important changes in 2015:

  • First is an increase in issue frequency, from four to six issues per year, reflecting a steady growth in article submissions and journal profile.
  • Second is a transition from print to electronic: PCDE member access is now fully electronic; Details on membership and access to PCD Journal articles are listed on the Journal Page.

These changes together reflect the journal’s growing stature and the broader move of scientific literature online with the additional functionality that offers. Thank you for continuing to read and support the journal during this year of growth and transition.
