The vision of JACI: In Practice is to be an indispensable resource for clinicians who manage patients with asthma, allergic, immunologic, and related conditions in order to optimize the care and health of these patients.

The mission of JACI: In Practice is to provide novel, valid, generalizable, and impactful information to support evidence-based clinical decisions in the diagnosis and management of asthma, allergic, immunologic, and related conditions.

JACI: In Practice covers the spectrum of conditions treated by allergist-immunologists in their practice: food allergy (including eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders), respiratory disorders (including asthma, allergic and nonallergic rhinitis/rhinoconjunctivitis, nasal polyps, chronic sinusitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), and hypersensitivity pneumonitis), drug allergy, insect sting allergy, anaphylaxis, dermatologic disorders (including atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, urticaria, angioedema, and hereditary angioedema (HAE)), immunodeficiency, and mast cell disorders. It also covers symptoms and signs for which patients are referred to an allergist-immunologist, such as cough, pruritis, rash, dyspnea, and eosinophilia. The emphasis of the Journal is on practical information for clinicians they can use in everyday practice or will help them acquire new knowledge or skills they can directly apply to their practice. Mechanistic or translational studies without immediate or near future clinical relevance and animal studies are not within the scope of the Journal.

All JACI: In Practice content is peer-reviewed. The Journal welcomes original research articles that fit into the above scope. For each Original Article, a highlight box indicates what is already known about this subject, what this study adds, and how the new information impacts current management guidelines. Shorter original research and instructive case reports are presented as Clinical Communications. "Images in Allergy" articles consist of clinical pictures (eg, X-rays, CT scans, biopsies, allergens, endoscopic visualizations of the airway, eruptions, etc.) and impart important clinical information. In addition, JACI: In Practice features various types of review articles that will primarily be invited by the editors. Many of these offer CME, and the invited Difficult Cases feature offers MOC credit. The original and review articles are supplemented by Editorials, AAAAI Practice Papers, Practice Options From Beyond Our Pages, Ask the Expert, and Practice Pearls features.
