New Journal on Long-term Care

A new open-access journal on adult care has launched, hosted by ILPN at the London School of Economics and Political Science, with four new articles published this month.

The Journal of Long-Term Care fills an important gap in the academic market, and provides a much-needed home for the rapidly growing volume of high-quality long-term care research.

With funding from the NIHR School for Social Care Research, the journal is free to submit to and all accepted articles will be published openly online. Articles will be considered on any aspect of long term care practice, research, policy, theory, systems of care, methods and education.

Author submission guidelines and further information are available here.
