Call for Papers: Physician Leadership Journal Seeks Your Expertise

By AAPL Staff

AAPL's award-winning publication welcomes articles from physician leaders about their work.

Physician leaders — and those who work with them — have a special role in today’s volatile health care environment. They have a wealth of knowledge about how to lead positive industry transformation for the benefit of their patients and their organizations. They are agents of change, with the experience and expertise to make a meaningful difference.

With that in mind, we extend an ongoing, open invitation to physician leaders and health care professionals around the world to share their knowledge with colleagues throughout the industry.

Every issue of our award-winning magazine, the Physician Leadership Journal, includes an entire section of peer-reviewed articles related to leadership in medicine, organizations and health care delivery. In this section, the PLJ publishes articles by physician leaders, for physician leaders — articles that spotlight original research, operational interventions and findings, and discussions that orient readers to important issues within health care leadership.

As the voice of physician leadership, the PLJ encourages physician leaders to submit manuscripts based on their professional perspectives. The shared knowledge helps physician leaders amplify their powerful voice amid rapidly changing times.

The issues you face are the issues your colleagues face. What have you done that worked? Why did it work? How did you do it? Where have you made an impact as a leader? Your colleagues want to know.

It’s easy to contribute an article. Simply download our author submission guidelines for details or send queries to

You don’t have to be in the C-suite to contribute your expertise. All physicians are leaders at some level — with experiences and points of view essential to the profession’s collective body of knowledge.

Knowledge is power. You have the power to make a difference and inspire change in health care. We encourage you to help empower your colleagues as well.
