New Journal Issues Call for Papers

From the Cambridge University Press:

Health Economics, Policy and Law
Cambridge University Press is delighted to announce the launch of a new quarterly journal, Health Economics, Policy and Law for 2006. International trends highlight the confluence of economics, politics and legal considerations in the health policy process. Health Economics, Policy and Law will serve as a forum for scholarship on health policy issues from these perspectives, and will be of use to academics, policy makers and health care managers and professionals. HEPL will be international in scope, and will publish both theoretical and applied work. Considerable emphasis will be placed on rigorous conceptual development and analysis, and on the presentation of empirical evidence that is relevant to the policy process. The definition of health policy will be broad, and will include factors that affect health but that transcend health care, and factors that only indirectly affect health, such as legal and economic considerations in medical research. Articles on social care issues will also be considered. The most important output of HEPL will be original research articles, although the editors also encourage readers to propose subjects for editorials, review articles and debate essays.

Call for Papers
HEPL invites high quality contributions in health economics, political science and/or law, within its general aims and scope. The recommended text-length of articles is 6-8,000 words for original research articles, 2,000 words for guest editorials, 5,000 words for review articles, and 3,000 words for debate essays. All articles should be written in English, and should follow the instructions for contributors, which can be found at:

All contributions and general correspondence should be sent to:

Announcement and Call for Papers

Longwoods Publishing, The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Institute of Health Services and Policy Research, the Canadian Association for Health Services and Policy Research (CAHSPR) and Editor-in-Chief Brian Hutchison are pleased to announce the new quarterly journal, Healthcare Policy, and to issue the journal’s first call for papers. This announcement is the culmination of much effort over many years by committed individuals and organizations to establish a Canadian health services, management and policy journal. Healthcare Policy will publish original scholarly and research papers that support health policy development and decision making in spheres ranging from governance, organization and service delivery to funding and resource allocation. Healthcare Policy will strive to meet the needs of readers from diverse backgrounds including health system managers, practitioners, policy makers, educators and academics. The journal will be supportive of interdisciplinary research on health services and policy and open to researchers from a broad range of disciplines including (without intending to be exhaustive) social sciences, humanities, ethics, law and management sciences. Submissions from decision makers or researcher-decision maker collaborations that address knowledge exchange and application will be welcomed. Themes addressed in the journal will include (again without intending to be exhaustive) those identified in the recent national consultation on health services and policy issues in Canada, Listening for Directions II: • Workforce planning, training, and regulation • Management of the healthcare workplace • Timely access to quality care for all • Managing for quality and safety • Understanding and responding to public expectations • Sustainable funding and ethical resource allocation • Governance and accountability • Managing and adapting to change • Linking care across place, time, and settings • Linking public health to health services The journal’s distinguished editorial team, drawn from both the research and decision-making communities, consists of:

Call for Papers Healthcare Policy invites authors to submit manuscripts that address health services, management and policy issues that are relevant to the Canadian context. The peer review process will include both academic and decision-maker reviewers and will consider both the scientific quality of the work and its contribution to knowledge that can inform health policy, planning and management. Longwoods Publishing anticipates that the first issue of the journal will be available (electronically and in print) by late summer or early fall 2005. Manuscripts in both official languages are invited. Papers will be reviewed and published in language of submission. Abstracts will be translated.
