About the Journal

​Critical Care Explorations is the official open access journal of the Society of Critical Care Medicine. The journal rapidly evaluates and disseminates new data and analyses that stimulate further innovation and inquiry toward optimal care of the critically ill adult or child. The journal publishes basic and translational science reports, clinical investigations, narrative and systematic reviews, meta-analyses, quality improvement studies, predictive modeling studies, advances in therapies and monitoring, implemenatation science reports, methodological and technical advances, and health services research related to critical illness at all life stages. Priority for publication is given to findings that are novel, generalizable, or likely to stimulate further investigation, including pilot and hypothesis-generating studies. Manuscripts submitted to Critical Care Explorations that are given a high priority are those that stand to change perceptions about, or influence the practice of, critical care medicine. Multiple media (text, audio, video, and supplemental data files) are accepted; interactive tools for end users are valued.
