Journal of Critical Incidents

Round 1 2019 submissions are due by May 20th, 2019. Please send submissions via IgnitEd.

  • JCI's focus is on brief incidents that tell about real situations.
  • Each incident tells a story, an experience, a blunder, or a success.
  • Unlike long cases, incidents provide only essential historical details and limited situation development.
  • Most incidents are decision oriented, but well written descriptive incidents are possible. Quantitatively oriented incidents need to include questions that require judgment.
  • Critical incidents can be based on either field work or secondary research.
  • The maximum length of a critical incident is three single-spaced pages.
  • The SCR Manuscript Guidelines for Authors provides layout and submission requirements.
