Journals

  • Qualitative Research in Medicine and Healthcare

    Qualitative Research in Medicine and Healthcare represents an interdisciplinary and international forum for qualitative research in healthcare settings. The journal is conceived as a site for the emergence of dialogue between researchers and academics and healthcare practitioners; it allows an exchange between multiple parties in the health and social service professions, patients and clients as well as graduate students and researchers who practice qualitative methods. Qualitative research approaches healthcare in a completely different way from quantitative research, providing important insights into health-related phenomena, generating new avenues for empirical questions. Qualitative research examines lived experience and relational processes as the basis of social phenomena, including those related to health. Therefore, it can answer to questions that quantitative research cannot, such as why people do not adhere to a life-saving treatment regimen or why a certain healthcare intervention is so successful, or fails. It uses many methods of data collection and numerous approaches to data analysis that range from systematic coding to phenomelogical and inductive approaches. Each issue of Qualitative Research in Medicine and Healthcare provides readers with a varied array of material and commentaries on important people and issues in healthcare as well as peer-reviewed articles that address and examine: the illness experience from multiple and varied perspectives; constructions of health, illness and healthcare that highlight relational and cultural contexts; healthcare policies in various organizational and institutional settings; attention to the communicative dynamics of the patient-provider relationship; narrative approaches to health.

  • Journal of Xenobiotics

    The Journal of Xenobiotics publishes original studies concerning the beneficial (pharmacology) and detrimental effects (toxicology) of xenobiotics in all organisms. A xenobiotic (“stranger to life”) is defined as a chemical that is not usually found at significant concentrations or expected to reside for long periods in organisms. In addition to man-made chemicals, natural products could also be of interest if they have potent biological properties, special medicinal properties or that a given organism is at risk of exposure in the environment. Topics dealing with abiotic- and biotic-based transformations in various media (xenobiochemistry) and environmental toxicology are also of interest. Areas of interests include the identification of key physical and chemical properties of molecules that predict biological effects and persistence in the environment; the molecular mode of action of xenobiotics; biochemical and physiological interactions leading to change in organism health; pathophysiological interactions of natural and synthetic chemicals; development of biochemical indicators including new “-omics” approaches to identify biomarkers of exposure or effects for xenobiotics. Studies on the interaction of emerging nano- and biotechnological devices and drug-nanopolymers with living tissues are also of interest to the journal. In addition to research papers, short communications, reviews and mini-reviews, Journal of Xenobiotics will publish special issues dealing with the environmental, pharmaceutical and health impacts of new classes of chemicals. In this case, a special issue will be announced and provided at the journal’s web site. Special issues brought by international symposia or other scientific venues are also welcomed.
