Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates (Open Access Journals)

About Clinical Research in Practice: The Journal of Team Hippocrates

An open access, peer reviewed journal dedicated to the scholarship of clinical decision science. Clinical decision science explores how the complex interacting aspects of clinical care are described, understood, shared, and explained. We define clinical decision sciences as a holistic examination of how clinical decisions are made. This includes both biomedical and medical social sciences, in addition to other ways of understanding human experience.

The Woodward Review: A Creative and Critical Journal (Open Access Journals)

Woodward Review is a new journal edited by graduate students at Wayne State University, trying to collapse the distance between creative, critical, and "academic" writing by highlighting the conversations between them as codependent modes of responding to and moving through the world.

Woodward Review seeks poetry, prose, art, hybrid and digital media, and the conversations these different forms can inspire. The Review is built on the mutual exchange between creative work and its reception. Whether your response is personal, critical, or creative, collisions with art are never passive.
