Aims and scope
Advances in Simulation provides a forum to share scholarly practice to advance the use of simulation in the context of health and social care.
Advances in Simulation publishes articles that cover all science and social science disciplines, all health and social care professions and multi- and inter-professional studies. The journal includes articles relevant to simulation that include the study of health care practice, human factors, psychology, sociology, anthropology, communication, teamwork, human performance, education, learning technology, economics, biomedical engineering, anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, therapeutics, scientific computation, simulation modelling, population studies, theatre, craft, program evaluation and more.
The Association of Standardized Patient Educators (ASPE) Standards of Best Practice (SOBP)
Advances in Simulation is the official journal of the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM).
SESAM was founded in 1994 in Copenhagen and aims to encourage and support the use of simulation in health care and medicine for the purpose of training and research. Key roles of SESAM are to develop and support the application of simulation in education, research, and quality management by facilitating collaborations and the exchange of technology and knowledge throughout Europe.
Advances in Simulation is delighted to announce a partnership with Simulcast, to produce a bi-monthly podcast featuring an article from the journal with an interview with the author, an editor or another discussant. The aim is to continue to connect the simulation community across geography, discipline and modality, and to help research to be translated to practice.
