Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of health services. Evidence from hypothesis-testing studies is presented, either in the form of pilot projects or larger retrospective studies. This facilitates exchange of new information and approaches to assessing performance.

Epidemiological designs are encouraged in studies addressing:

  • patient outcomes
  • service utilization
  • adherence to guidelines
  • cost-control

We invite reports employing innovative approaches to the study of health services. This includes mixed methods studies, organizational case reports and rigorous analysis of online data sources.

Studies reporting unexpected findings that contradict common assumptions about the performance of health systems are sought.

Studies addressing contemporary problems in health services with relevance to health policy are invited. No topic of widespread interest and importance is off limits.

The audience for this exciting journal is clinical investigators and health services researchers who study patients for the purpose of improving the performance of health care delivery systems. Physicians, nurses, allied health professionals, and managers will find the content relevant and useful to their daily concerns.

    3. What do we publish?

    3.1 Aims & scope

    Before submitting your manuscript to Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology,
    please ensure you have read the Aims & Scope.

    3.2 Article types

    Each submission should consist of a title page and a main document file. The title page should
    include the following information:

    • Manuscript title
    • Grant or financial support information and/or a conflict of interest statement
    • Any acknowledgments

    Every effort should be made by the author to see that the main document file contains no clues
    as to the author's identity. On the first page should be abstract (a maximum of 250 words) and
    4-5 keywords. All tables should be placed at the end of the file and numbered in the order they
    appear in text. We strongly encourage the appropriate use of bar charts and line graphs to
    illustrate key findings. Figures should be placed in individual text files, separate from the main
    document file. Word limits vary by section:

    Research letters – 1,000 words, one table.

    Case Studies – 1500 words, no more than 2 tables. These are organization case studies, not case
    reports about individual patients.

    Pilot Studies – 1500 words, no more than 2 tables. Brief reports about single-site studies are
    typical of this section. Studies should not be under-powered and should include a comparison
    group.

    Commentaries (invited) – 2000 words, no tables.

    Original research – 2000 words, 3 tables.

    Systematic Reviews – 5000 words, 2 tables.

    3.3 Writing your paper

    The SAGE Author Gateway has some general advice and on how to get published, plus links to
    further resources.

    3.3.1 Making your article discoverable 

    When writing up your paper, think about how you can make it discoverable. The title,
    keywords and abstract are key to ensuring readers find your article through search
    engines such as Google. For information and guidance on how best to title your article,
    write your abstract and select your keywords, have a look at this page on the Gateway:

    4. Editorial policies

    4.1 Peer review policy

    The journal’s policy is to have manuscripts reviewed by two expert reviewers. Health Services
    Research and Managerial Epidemiology
    utilizes a double-blind peer review process in which the
    reviewer and authors’ names and information are withheld from the other. All manuscripts are 
    reviewed as rapidly as possible, while maintaining rigor. Reviewers make comments to the
    author and recommendations to the Editor-in-Chief who then makes the final decision.

    Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology is committed to delivering high quality,
    fast peer-review for your paper, and as such has partnered with Publons. Publons is a third party
    service that seeks to track, verify and give credit for peer review. Reviewers for Health Services
    Research and Managerial Epidemiology
    can opt in to Publons in order to claim their reviews or
    have them automatically verified and added to their reviewer profile. Reviewers claiming credit
    for their review will be associated with the relevant journal, but the article name, reviewer’s
    decision and the content of their review is not published on the site. For more information visit
    the Publons website.

    The Editor or members of the Editorial Board may occasionally submit their own manuscripts for
    possible publication in the journal. In these cases, the peer review process will be managed by
    alternative members of the Board and the submitting Editor/Board member will have no
    involvement in the decision-making process.

    4.2 Authorship

    Papers should only be submitted for consideration once consent is given by all contributing
    authors. Those submitting papers should carefully check that all those whose work contributed
    to the paper are acknowledged as contributing authors.
    The list of authors should include all those who can legitimately claim authorship. This is all
    those who:

    (i) Made a substantial contribution to the concept or design of the work; or acquisition,
    analysis or interpretation of data,
    (ii) Drafted the article or revised it critically for important intellectual content,
    (iii) Approved the version to be published,
    (iv) Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public
    responsibility for appropriate portions of the content.

    Authors should meet the conditions of all of the points above. Each author should have
    participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the
    content.

    When a large, multicentre group has conducted the work, the group should identify the
    individuals who accept direct responsibility for the manuscript. These individuals should fully
    meet the criteria for authorship.

    Acquisition of funding, collection of data, or general supervision of the research group alone
    does not constitute authorship, although all contributors who do not meet the criteria for
    authorship should be listed in the Acknowledgments section. Please refer to the International
    Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) authorship guidelines
    for more information on
    authorship.

    4.3 Acknowledgements

    All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an
    Acknowledgements section. Examples of those who might be acknowledged include a person
    who provided purely technical help, or a department chair who provided only general support.

    4.3.1 Writing assistance

    Individuals who provided writing assistance, e.g. from a specialist communications company, do
    not qualify as authors and so should be included in the Acknowledgements section. Authors
    must disclose any writing assistance – including the individual’s name, company and level of
    input – and identify the entity that paid for this assistance.
    It is not necessary to disclose use of language polishing services.

    Please supply any personal acknowledgements separately to the main text to facilitate
    anonymous peer review.

    4.4 Funding

    Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology requires all authors to acknowledge
    their funding in a consistent fashion under a separate heading. Please visit the Funding
    Acknowledgements
    page on the SAGE Journal Author Gateway to confirm the format of the
    acknowledgment text in the event of funding, or state that: This research received no specific
    grant from any funding agency in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors.

    4.5 Declaration of conflicting interests

    It is the policy of Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology to require a declaration
    of conflicting interests from all authors enabling a statement to be carried within the paginated
    pages of all published articles.

    Please ensure that a ‘Declaration of Conflicting Interests’ statement is included at the end of
    your manuscript, after any acknowledgements and prior to the references. If no declaration is
    made the following will be printed under this heading in your article: None Declared.
    Alternatively, you may wish to state, The Author(s) declare(s) that there is no conflict of interest.

    When making a declaration the disclosure information must be specific and include any financial
    relationship that all authors of the article has with any sponsoring organization and the forprofit
    interests the organization represents, and with any for-profit product discussed or implied
    in the text of the article. Any commercial or financial involvements that might represent an
    appearance of a conflict of interest need to be additionally disclosed in the covering letter
    accompanying your article to assist the Editor in evaluating whether sufficient disclosure has
    been made within the Declaration of Conflicting Interests provided in the article.

    For guidance on conflict of interest statements, please see the ICMJE recommendations.

    4.6 Research ethics and patient consent

    Medical research involving human subjects must be conducted according to the World Medical
    Association Declaration of Helsinki.

    Submitted manuscripts should conform to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Conduct,
    Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals
    , and all papers
    reporting animal and/or human studies must state in the methods section that the relevant
    Ethics Committee or Institutional Review Board provided (or waived) approval. Please ensure
    that you have provided the full name and institution of the review committee, in addition to the
    approval number.

    For research articles, authors are also required to state in the methods section whether
    participants provided informed consent and whether the consent was written or verbal.

    Information on informed consent to report individual cases or case series should be included in
    the manuscript text. A statement is required regarding whether written informed consent for
    patient information and images to be published was provided by the patient(s) or a legally
    authorized representative.

    Patients have a right to privacy that should not be infringed without informed consent.
    Identifying information, including patients' names, initials, or hospital numbers, should not be
    published in written descriptions, photographs, and pedigrees unless the information is essential
    for scientific purposes and the patient (or parent or guardian) gives written informed consent
    for publication. Informed consent for this purpose requires that a patient who is identifiable be
    shown the manuscript to be published.

    Identifying details should be omitted if they are not essential. Complete anonymity is difficult to
    achieve, however, and informed consent should be obtained if there is any doubt. For example,
    masking the eye region in photographs of patients is inadequate protection of anonymity. If
    identifying characteristics are altered to protect anonymity, such as in genetic pedigrees,
    authors should provide assurance that alterations do not distort scientific meaning and editors
    should so note. When informed consent has been obtained it should be indicated in the
    submitted article.

    Please also refer to the ICMJE Recommendations for the Protection of Research Participants

    All research involving animals submitted for publication must be approved by an ethics
    committee with oversight of the facility in which the studies were conducted. The journal has
    adopted the Consensus Author Guidelines on Animal Ethics and Welfare for Veterinary Journals
    published by the International Association of Veterinary Editors.

    If your trial has been registered, please state this on the Title Page. When reporting experiments
    on animals, indicate on the Title Page which guideline/law on the care and use of laboratory
    animals was followed.

    4.7 Clinical trials

    Health Services Research and Managerial Epidemiology conforms to the ICMJE requirement that
    clinical trials are registered in a WHO-approved public trials registry at or before the time of first 
    patient enrolment as a condition of consideration for publication. The trial registry name and
    URL, and registration number must be included at the end of the abstract. For this purpose, a
    clinical trial is defined as any research project that prospectively assigns human subjects to
    intervention or comparison groups to study the cause-and- effect relationship between a
    medical intervention and a health outcome. Studies designed for other purposes, such as to
    study pharmacokinetics or major toxicity (e.g. phase I trials), would be exempt.

    4.8 Reporting guidelines

    The relevant EQUATOR Network reporting guidelines should be followed depending on the type
    of study. For example, all randomized controlled trials submitted for publication should include
    a completed CONSORT flow chart as a cited figure and the completed CONSORT checklist should
    be uploaded with your submission as a supplementary file. Systematic reviews and metaanalyses
    should include the completed PRISMA flow chart as a cited figure and the completed
    PRISMA checklist should be uploaded with your submission as a supplementary file. The
    EQUATOR wizard can help you identify the appropriate guideline.

    Other resources can be found at NLM’s Research Reporting Guidelines and Initiatives.
