The PCRJ is delighted to inform you that we have now successfully moved to our new publishers, Sherborne Gibbs, and the journal is now available in full (without any charge for viewing papers) at www.thepcrj.org.

This issue is available online both on our site www.thepcrj.org and is indexed on PubMed as well.

I would like to draw attention to two papers published this month. (See the full table of contents below).

In particular, the Schermer/Quanjer paper questioning the GOLD criteria for diagnosing COPD.
