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.
IJIC has an Impact Factor of 1.837 (2017 JCR, received in June 2018)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our IJIC reviewers, editors and authors for their input and support during 2018 to help make the journal such a fantastic resource.
This year we have received more than 100 submissions and published a record number of articles - 63 so far. These have helped to advance our collective understanding of how to integrate care and so improve outcomes for people, families and communities.
Managing Editor Susan Royer said: “We very much appreciate the participation of all our reviewers and contributors who help to make the International Journal of Integrated Care such a success. We look forward to your continued collaboration during 2019 and beyond.
“The team at IJIC would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas.
“We look forward to seeing you all in San Sebastian, Basque Country, for ICIC19 between April 1 and 3, and to working with you to develop the knowledge base of integrated care.”

Registration has officially opened for IFIC’s International Summer School on Integrated Care 2019 (ISSIC19) that will be hosted at Wolfson College, Oxford, UK between Sunday, June 23 and Friday, June 28.
Book your place now and take advantage of our early bird discount offer giving you 10% discount on the cost of the week-long course if you book before Friday, February 15, 2019.
Led by our CEO, Dr Nick Goodwin, and Senior Fellow, Margrieta Langins ISSIC19 offers an intensive one-week education and training course on the theory and practice of integrated care.
The Summer School is aimed at senior professionals, clinicians, researchers and managers working in the field of integrated care. Developed for those tasked with designing, implementing, leading and/or managing integrated care, the syllabus will include a site visit and presentations from IFIC’s Integrated Care Academy © faculty and a range of international guest speakers.
A key feature of ISSIC19 will be group work focusing on how to design, implement and evaluate integrated care across a range of case studies. This work seeks to enable participants to understand the range of issues and challenges faced when implementing integrated care effectively and support participants with key lessons and strategies to enable this in their own professional lives and local contexts.
ISSIC19 also offers the unique opportunity to foster international networking and knowledge exchange.
Full details of the programme will be announced soon.Book now to avoid disappointment

Over the past two years the number of papers published in IJIC from PhD students has risen steadily to the point where they now contribute to about one-third of all original articles. This is a cause for celebration regarding the quality of work being undertaken by young researchers internationally, but unfortunately it has posed a problem for the ability of the Journal to self-finance its open-access approach to publishing. Given that many PhD students today receive a budget for open-access publishing, IJIC must announce that from 1 January 2019 we will be requiring all articles first authored by PhD students, and submitted after that date, to pay a discounted author fee of £625 GBP plus VAT. If any PhD student does not have access to such a publication budget then, with an accompanying signed and stamped letter from their University, we will continue to publish articles from those PhD students at no cost. We thank all the PhD students who have published successfully their original articles in our Journal. We would also like to remind our PhD students that IFIC retains a policy to publish short thesis summaries for free within the Journal and that IFIC runs an Emerging Researchers in Integrated Care (ERIC) programme that is designed to support the next generation of students and young academics to shape the integrated health and care systems of tomorrow.

International Medical Corps’ Toolkit aims to support the understanding and implementation of integrated mental health programs in humanitarian settings. It includes key guidance and resources that reinforce the integration process among implementation partners, donors and governments. The toolkit outlines the steps for integrated mental health programs and provides valuable guidance for better resource allocation, program design, contextualization, implementation and evaluation. The Toolkit is the result of a two-year process of consultation, resource-mapping and development with a Toolkit Advisory Group. This Toolkit was made possible by the generous support of the U. S. Agency for International Development’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance.
