About the Journal

September 2022

Paramedicine, formally the Australasian Journal of Paramedicine, is a bi-monthly, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that provides an international forum for the dissemination and discussion of paramedicine research.

The journal’s purpose is to advance and transform the discipline of paramedicine through high-quality evidence, and to inspire robust discussion, enable research translation, encourage innovative thinking and inform leadership. Paramedicine publishes research from any country engaged in any area of paramedicine, including but not limited to clinical care, models of practice, operations, patient safety and clinical quality, leadership, education, aeromedical and retrieval practice, tactical paramedicine, and community paramedicine. 

Paramedicine is open for manuscript submissions, with the first edition to be published in early 2023. Information on submissions is available at: www.paramedicinejournal.org

This current Australasian Journal of Paramedicine website will close down in early 2023 once all archive editions are transferred to the new website.


Journal History

The Australasian Journal of Paramedicine was first published in September 2003 under the masthead 'Journal of Emergency Primary Health Care' (Volume 1 Issue 1–2).

In 2013, Volume 10 Issue 1 was published under the new masthead 'The Australasian Journal of Paramedicine' (the AJP).

The AJP has a long history of publishing to advance and promote the science of pre-hospital care research, management, education, clinical practice, policy and service delivery, providing a forum to respond to the professional interests of the multidisciplinary pre-hospital care community. 

in 2021, the AJP entered into hiatus while the governance and operation was reviewed, with the plan to deliver a new international paramedicine journal.
