As a Guest Editor of International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being’s special edition on health and caring, it is my pleasure to present four original papers that cover a broad range of caring science: from philosophy of care to its empirical practice. The origin of the papers is the authors’ engagement in the European Academy of Caring Science (EACS).1 EACS is a network open to all disciplines that contribute to human care services.(Published: 9 December 2011)Citation: Int J Qualitative Stud Health Well-being 2011, 6: 11458 - DOI: 10.3402/qhw.v6i4.11458
