Journal - Wound Practice and Research

Wounds Practice and Research Journal now has a brand-new, custom built, website which makes it easier than ever to browse Journal articles on topics of interest and in turn improved knowledge and practices. The  Journal focuses on publishing high quality pre-clinical and clinical research, translational research, clinical practice and policies that impact the burden of wounds.

Our goal of launching a new website for the Journal is to further improve access the Journal’s important information so we can collectively reduce the harm caused by wounds. 

Amongst the features of the interactive website includes:
  • easy navigation of a single article published in each edition
  • access to multiple years of archived journal articles
  • improved article submission process
