The Journal of Interprofessional Care is a bimonthly peer-reviewed medical journal that covers education, practice, and research in health and social care.

Aims & Scope[edit]

The Journal of Interprofessional Care aims to disseminate research and new developments in the field of interprofessional education and practice. We welcome contributions containing an explicit interprofessional focus, and involving a range of settings, professions, and fields. Areas of practice covered include primary, community and hospital care, health education and public health, and beyond health and social care into fields such as criminal justice and primary/elementary education. Papers introducing additional interprofessional views, for example, from a community development or environmental design perspective, are welcome. The Journal is disseminated internationally and encourages submissions from around the world.

The Journal publishes the following types of manuscripts:

1. Peer-reviewed Original Articles (research studies, systematic/analytical reviews, theoretical papers) that focus on interprofessional education and/or practice, and add to the conceptual, empirical or theoretical knowledge of the interprofessional field.

2. Peer-reviewed Short Reports that describe research plans, studies in progress or recently completed, or an interprofessional innovation.

3. Peer-reviewed Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPEP) Guides that offer practical advice on successfully undertaking various interprofessional activities.

4. Guest Editorials that discuss a salient issue related to interprofessional education and practice.

5. Book and Report Reviews that offer summaries of recently published books and reports (published on the Journal’s Blog - see below).

The Journal was established in 1986 and is published by Taylor & Francis. The editor-in-chief is Professor Scott Reeves (Kingston University and St George's, University of London). The Journal of Interprofessional Care is supported by an international editorial board.[1]
