Aims & Scope

Complex Care Journal (CCJ) is a self-published, peer-reviewed, practice-oriented journal whose purpose is to advance the care of children with medical complexity (CMC) with a focus on multi-disciplinary team approaches. The journal is open access with no article processing charges.

CCJ publishes literature relevant to pediatric complex care providers including program reports, complex care case reports focusing on multidisciplinary and care coordination aspects, reviews of recent literature and educational resources related to complex care, policy reports, innovations in systems of care, and other practice-based evidence updates aside from original research. To ensure our publications are timely, we have developed an innovative collaborative peer review process. Furthermore, to encourage scientific discussion and promote progress in the field of complex care, readers may participate in moderated comments on published articles.

CCJ does not define the term “children with medical complexity” but rather will defer to definitions commonly being used in the literature at present time.
