Wolters Kluwer Health and the American Academy of Physician Assistants (AAPA) announced today an agreement to publish its official journal effective with the June 2013 issue. Lippincott Williams & Wilkins (LWW), part of Wolters Kluwer Health, will be the journal's publisher of record.
"We are delighted to be named publishing partner by the American Academy of Physician Assistants to help broaden the reach of its official peer-reviewed journal for this important and growing group of healthcare professionals," said Jayne Marks, Vice President of Publishing at Wolters Kluwer Health, Medical Research. "We look forward to developing new services and digital content channels to support the Academy's membership and journal subscribers."
As the physician assistant (PA) profession expands rapidly, growing an estimated 39 percent over the next decade, LWW will help develop and enhance the content strategy of the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants (JAAPA) with digital and online solutions keeping in step with how PAs want to access their professional literature and engage with the PA community. Other initiatives include diversifying and expanding offerings that support AAPA growth as well as providing value and benefits to members.
