The Annals of Family Medicine is a peer-reviewed research journal to meet the needs of scientists, practitioners, policymakers, and the patients and communities they serve. The Annals of Family Medicine is dedicated to advancing knowledge essential to understanding and improving health and primary care. The Annals supports a learning community of those who generate and use information about health and generalist health care. The Annals seeks to identify and address important questions in health and the provision of patient-centered, prioritized, high-quality health care. We welcome clinical, biomedical, social and health services research. The Annals publishes original research, methodology, and theory, as well as essays from reflective clinicians, patients, families, communities, and policymakers. We publish selected systematic reviews that build on current knowledge to advance new theory, methods, or research directions. The Annals seeks manuscripts that use and develop rigorous quantitative and/or qualitative methods, and manuscripts with application to practice, theory development, and policy. We encourage practice-based research and research that bridges disciplinary boundaries.
