ACCP Report

JACCP Update

Written by Jerry L. Bauman, Pharm.D., FCCP
JACCP Editor-in-Chief

ACCP members and other clinical pharmacist scholars continue to send their impactful research and reviews to the Journal of the American College of Clinical Pharmacy (JACCP). We continue to receive well over 300 submissions each year and provide a final decision within 27 days (on average). Our acceptance rate is around 43% overall and about 37% for uninvited/spontaneous submissions. JACCP papers were downloaded 124,000 times in 2021, 46% of which were from outside the United States, consistent with our aim to have an international audience. We published two themed issues in 2022: the first on the opioid crisis with guest editors Nadia Jubran and Suzanne A. Nesbit and the second on health equity with guest editors John M. Allen and Nancy Borja-Hart. Upcoming themed issues are (1) postgraduate training in clinical pharmacy with guest editors Robert DiDomenico and Amy Heck Sheehan and (2) critical care clinical pharmacy with guest editors Amy L. Dzierba and Tyree H. Kiser. We welcomed one new editorial board member, Jacinda Abdul-Mutakabbir, Pharm.D., MPH, who brings expertise in infectious diseases and health equity.

As reported in the September issue of the ACCP Report, six clinical pharmacists received Outstanding Reviewer Awards: Alex Isaacs, Pharm.D., M.S., BCPS; Judi Jacobi, Pharm.D., FCCP, MCCP, BCCCP; Rachel Kenney, Pharm.D., BCIDP; Kyle Turner, Pharm.D., BCACP; Kyle Weant, Pharm.D., FCCP, BCCCP, BCPS; and Michael Wolcott, Pharm.D., Ph.D., BCIDP, BCPS. In addition, three papers were selected for Editor’s Choice Awards:

I encourage all potential authors to consult our collection of Research and Scholarly Methods manuscripts and the EQUATOR Network to guide your processes. Collectively, we can increase the scientific rigor and impact of clinical pharmacy practice research and publications.

As always, I want to thank our associate editors and incredible editorial board for their contributions to the progress so far. Even more importantly, I want to thank the many clinical pharmacy scholars who decided to send their work to JACCP. Please continue to do so, and do not hesitate to email me or one of the associate editors if you have ideas for important papers or suggestions for improvement as we move forward.
