Throughout the year, our Editors may issue a Call for Papers for a special collection of articles for a themed issue or themed section of the journal. Below you’ll find links to the active Call for Papers for Value in Health Regional Issues.
Call for Papers:
Literature reviews are an essential component for obtaining data inputs or assessing the impact of health technologies on clinical, economic, or health-related quality of life. Literature reviews may inform coverage decisions for drugs, devices, or public health interventions, and frequently are used in comprehensive health technology assessments. When conducted properly, systematic literature reviews pool all relevant data to allow a more efficient process for assessing value. Non-systematic reviews (including scoping reviews, therapeutic area reviews, rapid reviews, and gap analyses) can also support evidence-based decision making and inform health policy decisions.
Recognizing the inherent usefulness of these types of studies, the Editors of Value in Health Regional Issues are issuing an open Call for Papers for systematic literature reviews and scoping reviews on a wide array of topics that seek to
inform healthcare decision making. Submissions do not need to focus solely on reviews of randomized controlled trials; they can include reviews of observational studies, economic evaluations, outcomes research studies, and preference-based
assessments. Reviews can address any aspect of value in health (eg, quality of life, resource use, and cost-effectiveness), evidence relating to patient-reported outcomes, or the impact of health policies in low- and middle-income countries.
As a benefit to both authors and readers, all accepted review articles will be made freely available online without any author or reader fees and will carry ISPOR’s standard copyright license (not a CC-BY license unless authors expressly pay for gold open access).
Submissions received before September 1, 2022 will have the best chance of being published in Value in Health Regional Issues in 2023. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.
Authors should submit manuscripts through the journal’s online submission system at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/vihregionalissues and be sure to identify their submissions as Literature Reviews.Submit Now
According to the World Health Organization, at least half of the world’s population still does not have full coverage of essential health services. To address the inequities in access and affordability of healthcare, all United Nations Member States have a common goal of achieving universal health coverage by the year 2030.
The goal of universal health coverage is to ensure that all people obtain the health services they need without suffering financial hardship in order to pay for them. Recognizing that many countries have already taken steps to providing universal health coverage, the Editors are issuing a Call for Papers that explore the innovative ways governments and health systems are addressing the social, economic, and policy issues that will reduce inequities and improve the availability, quality, and affordability of healthcare in these regions.
The Editors invite economic evaluations, health policy analyses, patient-reported outcomes research, and methodological submissions that provide data and insights that healthcare decision makers can use to inform priorities for legislation, regulation, and reimbursement for health services in the region.
Submissions received before January 1, 2020 will have the best chance of being published in Value in Health Regional Issues in 2020. Final decisions regarding ultimate acceptance rest solely with the Editors.
Authors should submit manuscripts through the journal’s online submission system and be sure to indicate in the cover letter that the paper is to be considered for the Universal Health Coverage themed section.Submit Now
