The Journal of the Intensive Care Society (JICS) is the official journal of the UK Intensive Care Society. The Intensive Care Society was founded in 1970 as the first national society for intensivists, bringing together all clinicians involved in critical care. The primary aims of the ICS are to foster education and research, to develop clinical standards, to enhance patient safety and to encourage professional development.
JICS is a UK-based, peer-reviewed journal published four times a year in January, April, July and October by Stansted News Ltd. The journal publishes original papers, review articles, critically appraised topics, case reports and audits of interest to all those involved in caring for critically ill patients. The editorial board recognises the multidisciplinary nature of critical care and encourages submissions from all specialties involved in research, clinical practice and management.
JICS was originally started in 1999 but has now been relaunched as an academic journal with its own dedicated web site. All the articles published from April 2008 onwards are available as individual PDFs. In addition you can search the site for titles, keywords, authors and abstracts.
During 2014 issues of JICS will be published and available online on 23rd January, 23rd April, 23rd July and 23rd October.
