AJPM Supplement Program

American Journal of Preventive Medicine

The American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM) is the official APTR journal, publishing articles in the areas of prevention research, teaching, practice, and policy. Original research is published on interventions aimed at the prevention of chronic and acute disease and the promotion of individual and community health. There is an emphasis on clinical preventive medicine, population health, injury and violence, smoking, physical activity, nutrition, diabetes and other chronic diseases, obesity, alcohol and drug abuse, immunizations, women's health, and infectious diseases.

Through the APTR-CDC CSELS cooperative agreement, CIOs may fund supplements in AJPM that disseminate best practices and build the scientific and programmatic evidence base. Supplements are stand-alone journal issues focused on a specific topical area that are printed in addition to an AJPM regular issue. Supplements must have a minimum of five articles but typically contain between 10-15 articles. CIOs without enough articles for a stand-alone supplement issue may consider a theme issue which is published within an AJPM regular issue. Theme articles generally contain a maximum of four articles, including an introductory commentary.

Fees for supplements include: Editorial fees (fees associated with administering and managing the issues) and publication fees. Supplement and theme costs are based on the number of published pages. Issue prices can vary depending on factors such as page count, administrative costs, and reviewer honoraria, among others.
