New Journal on Long-term Care
A new open-access journal on adult care is being launched, hosted by ILPN at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
The Journal of Long-Term Care will focus on long-term (social) care for adults with a global perspective, and articles will be considered on any aspect of long term care practice, research, policy, theory, systems of care, methods and education. The new journal will include empirical research papers (including quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods papers), theoretical discussions, policy commentaries, comparative analyses, and reviews of subject areas.
With funding from the NIHR School for Social Care Research, the journal does not require submissions fees and all of the articles will be published online, freely accessible.
Author submission guidelines and further information are available here.
