Irish Journal of Paramedicine


The Irish Journal of Paramedicine (IJP) is a open access, peer-reviewed, international journal dedicated to advancing and promoting the science of prehospital clinical care, research, education, policy, management and operational delivery, with a focus on Irish research.

It is free to read, and free to publish in the IJP. We do not charge any fees of any kind. Registering as a user of the site is optional - all content can be accessed without a user account. The Irish Journal of Paramedicine (IJP) is the official journal of the Irish College of Paramedics, the professional body for Irish prehospital emergency care practitioners.

We also deposit a copy of all Irish healthcare related articles in the IJP with Lenus, the Irish Health Repository.  IJP is also indexed with WorldCat and Google Scholar. These steps ensure a permanent archived copy and record of all articles is openly accessible.
