Intensive Care Priority List

Intensive Care Priority List

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the prioritization of topics within the Emergency and Critical Care group is delayed. The release of these prioritized topics is now expected in mid-2024. We continue to accept registrations for new titles, and in cases where existing author teams are unable to provide updates for their titles, we will consider these titles vacant, allowing new authors to apply to take over. We are committed to sharing the results of this prioritization widely, utilizing both our online platforms and social media channels. Additionally, we will continually evaluate the editorial efforts and the impact of these priority reviews.
