April 26, 2023 

TORONTO – University of Toronto Press (UTP) and the Donald Guthrie Foundation are delighted to announce that they have formed a partnership for the publication of The Guthrie Journal.

As a mission-driven non-profit, UTP continues to publish exemplary works of scholarship and to disseminate knowledge broadly for the benefit of society. The UTP-The Guthrie Journal partnership is a natural fit for both parties. UTP’s 120 years of academic publishing experience will further amplify The Guthrie Journal’s legacy of scholarly excellence by strengthening its focus on research publishing and attracting new readers and submissions from a wider North American and global audience. The addition of The Guthrie Journal supports UTP’s mission by increasing its allotment of open access research and contributions within medical and health sciences.

“Our work in the medical sciences area has been growing for a while now,” says Antonia Pop, Vice President of Publishing at UTP. “We are honoured that the Donald Guthrie Foundation has entrusted us to represent their venerable, flagship publication. We are excited to further The Guthrie Journal’s legacy of distributing essential information and clinical research for the medical community, fostering lifelong learning and sharing exceptional research. We look forward to expanding the global reach of The Guthrie Journal’s vital research!” — Antonia Pop, Vice President, Publishing

An open access, peer-reviewed medical journal, The Guthrie Journal publishes articles spanning a variety of medical research and current issues. The Guthrie Journal, originating as The Guthrie Clinic Bulletin, has been publishing vital medical information for nearly 100 years. With a rich history in essential medical research, the Donald Guthrie Foundation’s mission is built on innovations in patient-centered care, excellent clinical research, and continued education. This mission will also continue to be utilized as the journal’s guide.

Within its partnership with UTP, The Guthrie Journal will be published twice a year (April and October) with advanced access to accepted articles online. The journal publishes relevant original research, scoping and systematic reviews, reports on quality improvement projects, and case reports to its readership. Diverse and esteemed, contributors to The Guthrie Journal range from medical students, residents, fellows, faculty, researchers, and practitioners at all career stages and in all specialties.

“It is essential to publish research on rural experiences with treatment algorithms and patient outcomes,” states The Guthrie Journal Editor in Chief, Burt Cagir, MD, FACS. “As the Foundation works to strengthen regional collaborations to expand opportunities for translational and clinical research, we hope The Guthrie Journal will serve as a vital home for the kinds of research that have real potential to improve patient and community health in historically underserved populations. Given Guthrie’s culture and commitment to medical education, we also hope The Guthrie Journal can provide space to discuss current challenges, opportunities, and innovative approaches in this area. The UTP partnership will provide the journal with a stable platform, global reach, and century-long expertise in scholarly journal publishing. We are thrilled that UTP is helping us make the first seven decades of the journal available, and we look forward to growing with UTP in the years to come.”

Donald Guthrie Foundation Dr. Donald Guthrie founded a multispecialty group practice in 1910 in Sayre, Pennsylvania, to serve the needs of people in the surrounding rural communities of Pennsylvania and New York. Under his guidance, the Foundation was established in 1944. The nonprofit Foundation’s work has grown and evolved over the years, but it maintains Dr. Guthrie’s vision to improve the lives of patients within the Twin Tiers region by supporting medical research and education.

The Guthrie Journal hasits roots in The Guthrie Clinic Bulletin, which first appeared in 1931 as a quarterly print publication. Today, it is an open access, peer-reviewed medical journal. Articles address clinical, biomedical, epidemiological advances as well as ongoing issues related to medical education.
