The Journal of Paramedic Practice is a medical journal, which specialises in the field of Paramedic Practice and prehospital care.[1] It publishes peer-reviewed original research, review articles, art and history of medicine pieces, letters to the editor and personal reflections.[2][3][4][5]

The Journal of Paramedic Practice is the official partner journal of the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives, the Association of Air Ambulances, and a media partner of the Independent Ambulance Association.[6]

Researchers and clinicians have stated that the Journal of Paramedic Practice; "bring[s] the professional community together while expanding the boundaries of professional practice",[7] is "peer-reviewed journal of high relevance to EMS"[8] and that "it is an excellent resource for paramedics to enable them to enhance their professional knowledge".[9]

The consultant editors are Mr Pete Gregory of the University of Wolverhampton[10], Prof Ian Peate OBE of the School of Health Studies in Gibraltar[11] and Ms Lynda Sibson, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust[12].

It has an h5-Index of 7 (median of 8)[13] and is stocked by educational libraries around the world.[14]

Most Cited Papers[edit]

GoogleScholar lists an article about humour as a coping mechanism as the most cited, followed by the article about demand for 999 ambulance, and then a paper on the prehospital use of ketorolac.[15][16]

The Journal of Paramedic Practice is the chosen journal of at least 22 paramedics undertaking PhD studies when publishing their research[19][20]. The Journal is also a core journal searched during systematic reviews of the prehospital literature[8][21][22][23].

Members of the College of Paramedics have discounted access to the Journal of Paramedic Practice as an educational resource[24] and it is a recommended text for paramedic students and researchers in various countries, including Australia[25] and the United Kingdom.[26][27][28][29] Articles from the journal are often highlighted as key reading for paramedics by employers[30][31], and it is recommended and cited by JRCALC in their national clinical practice guidelines[32]. Access to this journal is included in the NHS OpenAthens scheme[33][34]. It is cited numerous times by the core paramedic texts in the United Kingdom.[35][36][37][38][39]
