Aims & Scope
AimThe Journal of Interprofessional Practice and Collaboration (JIPC) disseminates relevant, high-quality literature in interprofessional practice, education, leadership, and clinical practice to empower health professionals, students, and educators to improve healthcare delivery and higher education practice. The intent of JIPC is to expose readers to a diversity of settings, healthcare professions, and fields to stimulate thought and expand knowledge. While it is common practice for scholars to work within their respective academic silo, the editorial board seeks to promote interdisciplinary collaboration between the healthcare professions. Therefore, any manuscript submitted by authors from two or more health science professions will be given priority consideration for publication. The JIPC is affiliated with the College of Health Sciences at the University of Louisiana Monroe and supports its mission to serve the public and health professionals by advancing higher education, policy, practice, and research.
ScopeThe Editorial Board welcomes contributions with an explicit interprofessional focus and aim to improve awareness of the processes involved in interprofessional practice, leadership, and education. Additionally, JIPC seeks to develop further awareness of the connection between interprofessional practice and enhanced outcomes for patients, healthcare organizations and higher education. The editorial board and reviewers recognize the diversity of scholarship between health professions and will work to provide fair and rigorous scrutiny under the peer-reviewed process.
