Our thought-provoking Health & Social Care Collection explores real-world scenarios and offers recommended improvements and solutions from leading thinkers in the field.

Themes covered include inequalities in healthcare provision, parity of physical and mental health, caring for an ageing population, the impact of crime on society, and creating healthy workforces.

All titles appear in Scopus and 94% of eligible titles are indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index. Many journals are published in partnership with key research centres including the Tizard Centre at University of Kent (UK), Estia Centre (UK), and Health Service Management Centre, University of Birmingham (UK).

Article submissions are closely mapped against research trends to ensure published content reflects areas of current or rapidly emerging interest. And, with no embargoes, you are always guaranteed immediate access to the latest research.
