WASHINGTON – AACC, a global scientific and medical professional organization dedicated to better health through laboratory medicine, is pleased to announce a publishing partnership with Oxford University Press for its peer-reviewed journals, Clinical Chemistry and The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine. Both journals will join Oxford University Press’s world-class science portfolio starting in January 2020. The partnership will increase researchers’ and healthcare practitioners’ access worldwide to the important science published in the journals.

Laboratory medicine is essential to high-quality patient care—without it, patients might receive the wrong diagnosis, inappropriate treatment, or no treatment at all if an illness isn’t accurately detected. As the most trusted and authoritative journal in laboratory medicine, Clinical Chemistry is committed to driving progress in the field by highlighting innovative research at the forefront of clinical testing. The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine, in turn, focuses on advancing the practice of lab medicine by showcasing findings that lab professionals can easily put into action. Together, these journals cover the gamut of timely healthcare subjects, from new tests that could help combat the opioid epidemic to gender-based disparities in medicine.   

“With Clinical Chemistry and The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine, AACC strives to provide lab professionals and related fields with the vital information they need to solve challenging patient health problems,” said AACC CEO Janet B. Kreizman. “We are excited to partner with Oxford University Press’s experienced publishing team to expand the reach of this crucial research and applied laboratory medicine information.”
