"Participatory medicine" has been a meme for nearly a decade, describing proactive strategies for wellness ranging from patient peer support groups to collaborative treatment and research efforts. Now the movement hopes to advance and further unify its conversation with the launch of its own peer-reviewed journal.

The Journal of Participatory Medicine (JPM) will be published exclusively online using Open Journal Systems, an open source journal management and publishing system developed by the Public Knowledge Project -- a nonprofit partnership between The University of British Columbia University, Simon Fraser University and Stanford University. Worldchanging eminence grise Jon Lebkowsky sits on the editorial board, alongside other notables including doctors from Harvard and Stanford, Faith McLellan from the World Health Organization, Amy Marcus from the Wall Street Journal, and Clay Shirky from NYU."
