PCDE’s Journal,  Primary Care Diabetes, will undergo some important change 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: Please note that Volume 9 issue 3 was the final print copy despatched to PCDE members; PCDE member access is electronic as of July; details on enabling this access will be listed on the Journal Page of this website.

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. Johan Wens Chairman PCDE
