International Journal of Integrated Care

Welcome to IJIC!

The International Journal of Integrated Care (IJIC) is an online, open-access, peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles in the field of integrated care on a continuous basis.

Established in 2000, IJIC's mission has been to promote integrated care as a scientific discipline. IJIC's primary purpose has been to examine critically the policy and practice of integrated care and whether and how this has impacted on quality-of-care, user experiences, and cost-effectiveness. Learn more about the focus and scope of the Journal by clicking here.

Our 2015 Annual Conference took place in March in Edinburgh. The Conference Supplement is available here.

The IJIC is sponsored by the International Foundation for Integrated Care (IFIC), a not for profit network that crosses organisational and professional boundaries to bring people together to advance the science, knowledge and adoption of integrated care policy and practice around the world.
