The Journal of Integrated Care (JICA) is a meeting point for ideas from those studying or evaluating integrated care, from those making or implementing policy, and from those disseminating research findings or applying them in practice. It looks for up-to-date coverage of the latest UK policy, practice and law concerning integrated care, and simultaneously seeks user and carer perspectives. Its mission is to facilitate the evidence-based integration of health, social care and other community services in order to benefit service users, patients, and taxpayers. International experiences and perspectives are also welcomed and appreciated.
The editorial board includes key national leaders and thinkers in the field, enabling a unique linkage of research evidence with professional and managerial ‘know how’ in the journal’s content.

Please note that submissions to the Journal of Integrated Care are now made using ScholarOne Manuscripts, the online submission and peer review system. Registration and access is available at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jica.For more information visit the author guidelines page.
This journal is cautiously experimenting with an “open” review process. Whilst the automated Manuscript Central system will operate to ensure “double-blind” peer reviews, where the identities of authors and reviewers are not revealed, you have the option of allowing the reviewer to know your identity. The reviewer will also be given this option. The editors will handle these experiments personally: following your submission please contact them direct by email: email@example.com
