The International Journal for Human Caring (IJHC), the official journal of the International Association for Human Caring (IAHC), is a peer-reviewed quarterly that serves as a forum for identifying major philosophical, epistemological, and professional dimensions of care and caring to advance the body of knowledge of human care.
IJHC is designed to:
Assist nursing and other disciplines to use care and caring knowledge in human relationships.
Explicate the nature, scope, and functions of care and caring and their relationship to nursing.
Identify the major components, processes, and patterns of care and caring in relation to nursing.
Stimulate and support nurse scholars and other professionals worldwide to systematically investigate care and caring.
Disseminate research findings about caring and share knowledge through publications, public forums, and research conferences.
Authors from all disciplines are encouraged to submit manuscripts that meet these purposes.
