Aims and scope

Aims and scope

COPD Research and Practice publishes basic and clinical research and review articles relating to the development, progression and treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and related disorders.

The translational aspect of the journal facilitates discussion and dissemination of knowledge which allows new ideas to be exchanged between clinicians and researchers alike from bench to bedside. Both the open access format and high profile Editorial Board enable the distribution of research to an international audience ensuring high visibility and a wide reach for all publications.

The journal covers all areas of COPD research and practice but also has several special sections:

  • Epidemiology
  • Comorbidities
  • Etiology
  • Genetics
  • Rehabilitation and Therapeutics
