The Journal of Paediatrics and Child Health in Australia – a publication of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians – has an awesome feature for patient/family stories called The Patient’s Voice. Yes, this is an academic journal that accepts stories. They published my piece The Hospital World According to Aaron this month, and I’m pretty chuffed (as I think the Australians would say).
Even better – it is not hiding behind a firewall and open access, which is rare for these types of journals. Kudos to these progressive folks Down Under.
Ps: I’m aware that I’m not Dr. Sue Robins. I only have a BA in English. This amusing error is being fixed – and a symptom of a journal that generally only publishes the work of physicians!
