Focus and Scope
The Journal of the Ceylon College of Physicians (JCCP) is a forum for debate, education and entertainment for health professionals interested in clinical medicine, as well as medical developments and research worldwide. The Journal is aimed at practising physicians with commitments in Sri Lanka and has relevance to all those working in the health sector. The Journal’s prime responsibility is to the members of the Ceylon College of Physicians (CCP) and its objective is to promote good clinical practice and influence policy making across the medical world through publication of original research and peer reviewed articles on current issues and to foster responsible and balanced debate on issues that affect medicine and health care in Sri Lanka. Contributions to the JCCP reflect its national and multidisciplinary readership and include current thinking across a range of medical specialties and the Journal assists the College in its continuing medical education programme.
While members of the CCP receive the JCCP as one of the benefits of membership, the Journal has full editorial independence.
All articles published in the journal are deposited with Crossref
The Journal will be published twice a year in June and December.
