The Journal of Comorbidity (JOC) is an international, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes original clinical and experimental research articles on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and management of patients with comorbidity/multimorbidity.


Our vision is to be a leading global information resource to improve the health and wellbeing of patients with comorbidity/multimorbidity. 


In addition to original papers, the journal publishes treatment guidelines, policies, editorials, commentaries, protocols, and critical review articles, as well as proceedings of congresses. Preference is given to articles that advance the clinical management of patients. The Editorial Board also welcomes ideas and suggestions for special issues dedicated to unique themes.
