New CTS Journal in 2017

December 2016: Canadian Thoracic Society and Taylor & Francis announce publishing partnership

The Canadian Thoracic Society is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal: Canadian Journal of Respiratory, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine. The CTSJ or the “Red and White Journal” will be the only peer-reviewed Canadian journal dedicated to publishing critically important evidence-based guidelines and position papers, as well as research and clinical articles from Canada and around the world. The journal will also publish review articles, case studies, a “pulmonary image feature” and editorials.

Dr. Peter Paré of the Centre for Heart Lung Innovation in Vancouver, British Columbia has been appointed the journal’s inaugural Editor-in-Chief.  Associate editors have been selected to reflect a varity of specialities and disciplines in keeping with the inter-professional nature of the Canadian Thoracic Society’s membership base.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us all,” CTS President Andrew Halayko, PhD, FCAHS said. “We are aiming to produce a world class journal which will provide a platform for the Canadian respiratory research community to publish outstanding scholarly contributions, as well as serving as means to communicate with the CTS membership” Dr. Halayko said.

The contents of the journal will be relevant for those in the practice of respiratory, critical care and sleep medicine and those conducting research in these areas including observational studies, clinical trials, epidemiology, health services and outcomes studies, and translational basic research.   

The first issue of the Canadian Journal of Respiratory, Critical Care, and Sleep Medicine is actively soliciting content for their first issue, which is set to publish in April 2017. To learn more about the journal, visit www.tandfonline.com/UCTS
