BMJ Health & Care Informatics
The College’s journal is the BMJ Health & Care Informatics, which is the official publication of BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT, with which ACHI has a partnership.
BMJ Health & Care Informatics publishes international, peer-reviewed, high-quality research and evaluation, reviews, protocols, letters, commentaries and communication articles.
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.
The current website for the journal is https://promotions.bmj.com/bmjhci/
