Aims & Scope
Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical Care aims to be a leading biomedical review journal, providing reviews and comment on highly topical subjects and the latest breakthroughs in basic, clinical and translational research. This includes basic and clinical research aimed at understanding disease processes and clinical practice of importance to anaesthesia and critical care. The aim is to stimulate debate on new research, cover controversial topics, or provide a new framework for, or interpretation of, an old problem or current issue, or speculate on the implications of recent research and clinical advances in health care infrastructure concerns at national or international levels. Many of these subjects also raise ethical, legal and financial issues and TACC may include articles on such matters.
The journal's objective is to provide a platform for discussion, analysis and debate of these topics across a diverse, multidisciplinary audience of basic scientists and clinicians, who share the common goal of understanding anaesthesiology, pain, pharmacology, critical care and related subject areas with a view to new clinical practice. Communication of the emerging concepts and ideas will facilitate progress in exciting and evolving field of anaesthesia and critical care.
Reviews and Opinion articles form the foundation of each bimonthly issue. Reviews objectively chronicle recent and important developments. Opinion articles provide a forum for debate and hypothesis. The Focus section includes short articles highlighting topical issues and providing comment on recent research papers of particular note. Articles are carefully commissioned, peer-reviewed and edited to provide authoritative, critical and accessible insights.
Trends in Anaesthesia and Critical Care also welcomes correspondence. Letters may address topics raised in recent issues of the journal, or other matters of general interest to the field. The decision to publish rests with the Editor-in-Chief at all times. The author(s) of articles discussed in a Letter will normally be invited to reply.
If you are interested in suggesting an article for consideration, please submit a one-page summary with a list of key references. Authors should note that all articles are peer reviewed and publication cannot be guaranteed.
