Southern African Journal of Critical Care


The official journal of the CCSSA is the Southern African Journal of Critical Care. The Journal is sponsored by the Society to encourage research and learning in the fields of Critical Care Medicine, Nursing and Allied Health Sciences. The editor and editorial board are appointed by the CCSSA Council. This is a major project of the Society which provides the bulk of the publication costs. All articles are peer-reviewed and must conform to the highest ethical and scientific standards.

The Journal has been in continuous publication since 1985 and two issues are published per year. Society members are posted a free printed copy of each issue so it is important for members to keep their address details up to date. In addition a copy of the latest issue is included in the bag of all delegates to the CCSSA national congress and refresher course. The journal is also published on-line.

The Journal is accredited by the Department of Higher Education and Training which means South African universities can claim a research output subsidy for articles published. Articles are also published on the SCieLo and African Journals on-line websites. Currently there is no fee to submit or have an article published.
