Global Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine (GAPM)

Online ISSN: 2059-0512


The journal aims to promote publications from anesthesia care providers who are otherwise unable to access other journals. Most importantly, those anesthesia care providers from countries or regions that have few resources to provide anesthesia care or approaches to perioperative medicine now have a forum to publish their approaches, research, and dilemmas in patient management.

Global Anesthesia and Perioperative Medicine (GAPM) is a bimonthly open access journal with a comprehensive peer review policy, and a rapid publication process.

Preference for publication will be quality research, novel approaches to fundamental problems, and perioperative management of diseases not seen in medically advantageous countries which illustrates an important, practical and generalisable teaching message. We would also like to publish original case reports across all medical disciplines contributing greatly to the advancement of health care. Case reports do not have to be novel or unusual, but need to reflect best practice.

Manuscripts must be authentic, understandable, educational, and of interest to an international audience, residents, fellows, and researchers, as well as clinicians in related fields.

GAPM welcomes direct submissions of manuscripts from authors. You can submit your manuscript to: editor.gapm@oatext.com alternatively to: submissions@oatext.com
