Health Affairs will publish a theme issue on health care quality in April 2011. The journal’s aim is to bring together the best current thinking on a range of topics related to quality and to highlight important trends, developments, and controversies. Health Affairs particularly wants to surface key issues or proposals for consideration by policy makers at the state, federal, organizational or industry level.
Papers should be submitted to Health Affairs by January 3, 2011 through the journal’s online submission system. Papers submitted by that date will be considered for inclusion in the theme issue as well as in subsequent issues of the journal later in 2011. Papers submitted after January 3 will be considered for later issues, but not for the April theme issue.
Detailed information on the theme issue and submission requirements is available on the Health Affairs Website. Authors who are uncertain of the appropriateness of their work for the issue may informally send an abstract to Health Affairs deputy editor Sarah Dine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Other questions may be directed to Ms. Dine or executive editor Don Metz at email@example.com.
