Apply today to lead these new publications as editor in chief

Since 1935, the journal CHEST® has published the latest original research, practice management guidance, editorials, reviews, and letters. Originally focused on tuberculosis, CHEST has continually evolved to serve clinicians and their patients as the fields of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine grow and change over time.

Now, CHEST is expanding its portfolio with two new open access journals, set to launch in 2023: CHEST Critical Care and CHEST Pulmonary. These publications will enable the American College of Chest Physicians to publish additional specialized content in the areas of critical care and pulmonology and allow research funded by groups with an open access mandate an option to publish through the CHEST portfolio. Learn more about our new open access journals.

We are now accepting applications for editors in chief to launch and lead CHEST Critical Care and CHEST Pulmonary.
