From 2017 it is open access.

The EJGP is aiming to:

  • Foster scientific research in general practice/family medicine (GP/FM) and primary health care (PHC) in Europe, by the publication of original papers, short research reports and systematic reviews of the literature (‘evidence’), as well as papers on methodological issues.
  • Stimulate education and debate relevant for the development of GP/FM in Europe by the publication of a variety of background papers, covering clinical matters, educational topics, or policy issues (‘using and discussing the evidence’).
  • Facilitate the communication between the members of WONCA Europe, its international network organisations and special interest groups, national colleges and societies of GP/FM, academic departments and institutes, research networks, and individuals involved in research and teaching in GP/FM/PHC.
