Aims and Scope

Acute and Critical Care (abbreviated as Acute Crit Care, ACC) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes current works and ideas in critical and intensive care medicine. It informs clinical and experimental results and evidences for all critical care physicians, critical care nurses, and other healthcare professionals and improves the care of critically ill patients. It is a medium dedicated to basic, experimental, translational research as well as clinical studies relating to all fields of critical illness. It publishes journals quarterly. All or part of the Journal is indexed by Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), PubMed, PubMed Central (PMC), Scopus, KCI (Korea Citation Index), KoreaMed, KoMCI (Korean Medical Citation Index), DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals), EBSCO, Crossref, Google Scholar, ScienceCentral, and the Journal can also can be downloaded from the homepage of the Korean Society of Critical Care Medicine (http://www.ksccm.org) and the Journal’s web site (http://accjournal.org or http://acuteandcriticalcare.org).


This journal is primarily intended for scientific researchers and personnel who work for acute, critical care. However, its readership can be expanded to other positions: students can understand recent trends in acute, critical and intensive care medicine; physicians can obtain recent topics and cases for continuing education; policy makers are able to reflect the results of the articles to nation-wide public health and science promotion policies.


Acute and Critical Care (abbreviated as Acute Crit Care) is the official publication of the Korean Society of Critical Care Medicine (KSCCM), which was founded in 1980.

Title change and language

In 2018, the name of the official publication of KSCCM was changed from Korean Journal of Critical Care Medicine (1986 ~ 2017) to Acute and Critical Care (Acute Crit Care, ACC, 2018 ~). Articles were written in Korean and English until 2013. From 2014, articles were published exclusively in English.
