The Journal of Integrated Care (JICA) facilitates the evidence-based integration of health, social care and other community services to the benefit of service users, patients and taxpayers. 

JICA publishes accessible, readable, challenging and current papers covering:

  • UK and international policy and practice 
  • The relationship between policy and practice (including ‘central/local’ and ‘bottom up/top down’ perspectives)
  • Outcomes and evaluation of practice, performance, quality and efficiency
  • Change management 
  • Adult and children’s services and their interface 
  • Organizational/workforce development 
  • Multidisciplinary/interagency approaches and partnership between allied health professions, social work and social care
  • The concerns of service users and carers

JICA is vital reading for managers and practitioners responsible for commissioning, planning and providing care services, as well as academics studying or evaluating policy.

We welcome new writers and provide advice and support in preparing papers for publication. Papers are normally subject to double blind peer review, but we also encourage open reviewing where appropriate
