BMJ Health & Care Informatics

(BMJ HCI) is an open access, peer reviewed journal covering all aspects of informatics in healthcare.

The essential scope of the journal is how informatics supports improvements in direct health and care service provision, but also incorporates public health strategies and interventions, implementation of learning health systems and national policy issues.

A core purpose of the journal is to bring together the academic and practitioner communities, so we invite professionals in health and care informatics who are unfamiliar with the conventions and processes of academic publishing to contact the editorial office for guidance on writing for publication.

BMJ Health & Care Informatics adheres to the highest possible industry standards concerning publication ethics. To read the journal's detailed guidelines please see our policies. Keep up with the latest journal announcements on Twitter and Facebook.
