  • Description:
    This has been a transformative year for Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD). The journal has developed in its innovative use of technology and has also implemented a progressive editorial process that continues to focus on producing content of the highest quality. We look forward to a productive 2013 and will continue working to increase the high quality standards of PCD. 2012 Accomplishments Timeline: January – PCD reduces turnaround time from acceptance to publication by implementing a continuous publication model, publishing articles each week rather than holding and bundling articles to publish in bimonthly issues. • March – The journal begins offering monthly Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits in partnership with Medscape. • May – PCD releases podcast of board member Dr Shiriki Kumanyika discussing her role in HBO’s ground-breaking documentary series on obesity in America, “The Weight of the Nation.” • July – The journal receives its first impact factor of 1.819, one of the highest debuts in public health journals. • September – Editor in Chief Sam Posner conducts podcast interview with Drs Giridhar Mallya and James Marks regarding childhood obesity. • October – PCD is the first CDC journal to launch iPhone and iPad applications. • November – PCD’s total reach, including Web views, RSS feeds, and iPad app traffic, triples since the beginning of 2012.
