Glenview, Illinois – Published monthly, the journal CHEST® features peer-reviewed, cutting-edge original research in chest medicine: Pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine and related disciplines. Journal topics include asthma, chest infections, COPD, critical care, diffuse lung disease, education and clinical practice, pulmonary vascular disease, sleep, thoracic oncology and the humanities.
The June issue of CHEST journal contains 58 articles, including clinically relevant research, reviews, case series, commentary and more.

“In early 2023, the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) journal portfolio will be expanding by adding two new open access journals: CHEST Pulmonary and CHEST Critical Care. The new journals will allow us to publish more unique clinical content and provide more avenues for authors to publish their work, leading to more diverse content and faster publication times,” says Editor in Chief of the journal CHEST, Peter Mazzone, MD, MPH, FCCP. “As we grow the portfolio, we will remain committed to publishing high-quality, timely and clinically impactful content that has made the journal CHEST the premier journal for clinicians in chest medicine.”
