Oxford UP and West China Hospital Launch Joint Journal on Precision Medicine

This spring, Oxford University Press and West China Hospital’s joint English-language journal Precision Clinical Medicine (PCM) was officially launched online.

Precision Clinical Medicine is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, case reports, reviews, editorials, and perspectives on all aspects in the field of precision medicine. The journal aims to provide new theories, methods, and evidence for disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.


Dr Weimin Li, editor-in-chief of Precision Clinical Medicine, said that West China Hospital has established a precision medicine-oriented development strategy for the coming ten years. The hospital is pleased to cooperate with Oxford University Press on Precision Clinical Medicine and hopes to make the journal a new communication platform for the latest development of related research and clinical application of precision medicine.


Rhodri Jackson, editorial director of Asia Journals at Oxford University Press, expressed his excitement on partnering with West China Hospital to launch Precision Clinical Medicine. He is confident about the top-quality team assembled for the journal and believe that Oxford University Press, West China Hospital, and the editors of the journal can work together to make Precision Clinical Medicine the pre-eminent journal in its field.
