General information

Critical Care is a high quality, peer-reviewed, international clinical medical journal. Critical Care aims to improve the care of critically ill patients by acquiring, discussing, distributing, and promoting evidence-based information relevant to intensivists.

A subscription to Critical Care provides full and unrestricted access to all of the content within the journal. All of the research articles in Critical Care are open access; however the journal also publishes a range of additional article types which are only available by subscription. Article types include:

  • Reviews: provide a full and factual account of recent developments within an area of research and are usually commissioned by the journal. In-depth reviews provide substantial coverage of a subject in a single longer article, and multi-author thematic series explore a subject in a series of concise, narrowly focused review articles coordinated by a leading authority in the field.
  • Commentaries: short, opinionated articles of contemporary interest which highlights a topical issue, expands on the underlying themes, and suggests what should happen next.
  • Viewpoints: opinion pieces focussing on new topics in the critical care field. They are more speculative than reviews and are more systematic than editorials and commentaries.
  • Meeting reports: are concise and rapidly prepared articles that report on key developments recently presented at conferences.

Subscribing to the journal will ensure that you are always kept up-to-date with the very latest developments in intensive care and emergency medicine. Personal subscriptions are available as well as institutional subscriptions, which will allow both you and your colleagues to view all the content within the journal.
