Corporate Authors:National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (U.S.) ; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (U.S.) ;
Description:This year has been an exciting one for Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) in both editorial quality and technological advances.
With an impact factor increase to 2.123, PCD continues to be a relevant forum for exchange of public health evidence for practitioners, researchers, and policy makers. In 2015, PCD received more article submissions than ever before, and we expect even more submissions in 2016. We look forward to a productive and dynamic 2016 and will continue to advance the high quality standards of PCD.
PCD continues to develop innovative ways to use technology, bringing the latest evidence and innovations to researchers and practitioners in the field. The journal moved all of its Web content to a Web Content Management System, making its pages responsive and easier to view on various platforms such as smart phones and tablets. The journal’s PCD Facebook page continues to increase its fan base and offers around-the-clock updates on articles and chronic disease news.
