Maney Publishing is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Catholic Medical Association (CMA) to publish The Linacre Quarterly starting in 2013. The journal will add to Maney’s already extensive health sciences list.
Providing a holistic approach to patients, The Linacre Quarterly is the oldest, continuously published bioethics journal in the United States, celebrating its 80th year in 2013. As the journal of the Catholic Medical Association, its aim is to uphold the principles of the Catholic faith in the science and practice of medicine. The journal provides a forum in which both faith and reason are discussed in the resolution of ethical issues.
The Linacre Quarterly explores issues at the interface of medicine and religion, focusing on clinical ethics but also exploring other ethical issues in healthcare delivery. Drawing from the rich tradition of Catholic bioethics, the journal promotes a holistic approach to patient care and research, integrating findings from clinical medicine with psychology, sociology, and theology in order to elucidate bioethical issues and their impact on patients, health-care professionals, and health-care delivery systems within the context of law, public policy, and the surrounding culture.
The journal will continue to be published quarterly, with the first issue with Maney to be published in February and subsequent issues to follow in May, August, and November. The journal will use Editorial Manager, an online system for article submission and peer review, as well as Fast Track for publishing online ahead of print. Consequently, time to publication will be kept to a minimum.
The journal’s Editor In Chief, William V. Williams, M.D., says, “We are excited to be partnering with Maney in the publication of The Linacre Quarterly. Their expertise in publishing and copy editing will be invaluable in further upgrading the quality of our journal and bringing it to a wider readership.”
Kimberly Martin, Executive Publisher, comments “We are very pleased to be partnering with the CMA and feel that The Linacre Quarterly will be an excellent addition to our healthcare collection. We look forward to a long collaborative partnership with the CMA
