Drugs - Real World Outcomes targets research involving the use of real-world data to evaluate health outcomes and inform healthcare decision-making, with a particular focus on healthcare-related 'big data'. Drugs - Real World Outcomes has a broad scope, encompassing studies investigating drug utilisation, patterns of prescribing, pharmacovigilance, treatment guideline adherence, benefit-risk assessments, comparative effectiveness and economic analyses.

Drugs - Real World Outcomes 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 (single-blind) is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with other Adis journals.

Adis Open Access enables you to make your journal article freely available to anyone, in exchange for payment of the APC.
