Health &
Social Care

eJournals collection

This collection boasts vital knowledge from international authors covering research, management and practice in health and social care and allied areas. The content recommends improvements for practice and considers the social impact of research and policy, combining research rigour with applied and practical value.

94 per cent of titles are indexed in Scopus and coverage includes: intellectual/learning disabilities, mental health, criminology and forensic practice, working with vulnerable groups and management of services. The Health and Social Care collection tackles some of the key research questions facing us for the global future: creating parity of physical and mental health, tackling inequalities in healthcare provision, caring for an ageing population, creating healthy workforces and improving patient care whilst delivering value for money.

Downloads increased by 28 per cent in 2014 and with plans to grow the number of articles in the collection by almost a quarter in the two year period 2015/16, it is proving to be an invaluable resource for anyone working or studying in this field.

In addition to a number of respected Health Care Management journals, the full collection contains titles which cover four key topics within the Health and Social Care arena. These sub-collections are also available as separate subscriptions so that institutions and organizations which specialize in these areas can choose the journals with most relevance to their fields of interest.
