A new open-access, peer-reviewed journal, currently in development, aims to publish research articles on a broad array of topics in health professions education, including medical, dental, and nursing education. Advances in Medical Education and Practice (working title) plans to cover emerging trends around the world as well as curriculum development and evaluation, teaching methodologies, student assessment, and continuing professional development and training for educators, among other topics.
