New journal for adult social care research

A new international open access journal for social care research has launched.  The Journal of Long-Term Care has been established to advance the research evidence base for all aspects of long-term care for adults.  The first articles include the economics of unpaid caring, whether age matters in the social care workforce and priorities for long-term care resource allocation in England.

All articles are published online as open access on the journal’s website to encourage maximum impact for all work.
