Aims and scope

Applied Health Economics and Health Policy is an international peer-reviewed journal designed to communicate the latest applied information in health economics and health policy.

Areas of interest include:

  • Economic analysis of all aspects of healthcare interventions.

  • Economic analysis of health policy initiatives.

  • Cost of illness studies.

  • Evaluation of methodologies.

  • Analysis of pricing and reimbursement systems.

Additional digital features (including animated abstracts, video abstracts, slide decks, audio slides, instructional videos, infographics, podcasts and animations) can be published with articles; these are designed to increase the visibility, readership and educational value of the journal’s content. In addition, articles published in Applied Health Economics and Health Policy may be accompanied by plain language summaries to assist readers who have some knowledge of, but not in-depth expertise in, the area to understand important medical advances.
