Health Research Policy and Systems is published in collaboration with the World Health Organization. The journal has an international approach that specifically includes low- and middle-income countries. We explore the role of evidence-based health policy and health research systems in ensuring that knowledge from research is used effectively to improve health and health equity. The journal particularly welcomes ‘research-on-research’ papers addressing research capacity building, prioritisation, conduct or use and/or that explicitly investigate the interaction between research and health policy or health systems.
