PharmacoEconomics is the benchmark journal for peer-reviewed, authoritative articles on the practical application of health economics and outcomes research to optimize healthcare resource allocation. An essential resource for clinicians, those involved in health technology assessment and other professionals involved with healthcare resource allocation, budgeting and prescribing decisions.

PharmacoEconomics is dedicated to the clear communication of complex pharmacoeconomic issues related to all healthcare interventions (drugs, diagnostics, devices, personalized medicine and surgical interventions).

As a hybrid journal, PharmacoEconomics does not charge authors to publish using the traditional subscription-based publishing route, but does offer the option to publish accepted articles open access if authors so wish or if their funders require. This is achieved via the Springer Open Choice™ initiative. More information about this optional route to open access and the associated article processing charge can be found by clicking on the ‘How to publish with us, including Open Access’ link below.

PharmacoEconomics offers a range of additional features designed to increase the visibility, readership and educational value of the journal’s content. Each article is accompanied by a Key Points summary, giving a time-efficient overview of the content to a wide readership. Articles 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 the scientific content and overall implications of the article. The journal also provides the option to include various types of digital features including animated abstracts, video abstracts, slide decks, audio slides, instructional videos, infographics, podcasts and animations. All additional features are peer reviewed to the same high standard as the article itself. Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with other Adis journals.
