How to publish in this journal


Palliative Care and Social Practice is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes articles on all aspects of palliative care. It welcomes articles from symptom science, clinical practice, and health services research. However, its aim is also to publish cutting-edge research from the realm of social practice - from public health theory and practice, social medicine, and social work, to social sciences related to dying and its care, as well as policy, criticism, and cultural studies. We encourage reports from work with under-represented groups, community development, and studies of civic engagement in end of life issues. Furthermore, we encourage scholarly articles that challenge current thinking about dying, its current care models and practices, and current understandings of grief and bereavement. We want to showcase the next generation of palliative care innovation research and practice - in clinics and in the wider society. Relaunched in July 2019. Partnered with Public Health Palliative Care International (PHPCI) (Title 2008-2018: - Palliative Care: Research and Treatment) Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.
