Journal of Health Economics and Outcomes Research


1.   What is JHEOR?

The Journal of Health Economics and Outcomes Research (JHEOR) is an international high-quality journal covering all fields and methodologies related to health economics and outcomes research. Manuscripts with topics ranging from theory and methodology to international studies and analyses with a health economic or outcomes research focus in a wide variety of therapeutic areas will be considered for publication.

All articles are available online as early as 24 hours from payment of the publication fee.


2.   Why submit to JHEOR?

Submit your research to JHEOR to take advantage of:

- Double-blind peer review within 1 week of submission.

- Publication as early as 24 hours after acceptance.

- All articles are published and receive final citation details on the day they are accepted.


3. Are there any fees to submit manuscripts?

Because the cost of peer reviewing, editing, publishing, maintaining and archiving articles is not recouped through subscription charges, JHEOR charges a publication fee on all articles that are accepted for publication. The publication fee is a flat charge of US$1,000.00, and no additional costs are incurred for the inclusion of color figures, etc.


4.   What is Open Access?

All articles published in JHEOR are open access, which means they are freely and universally accessible online, and permanently archived in an internationally recognised open access repository. Because open access articles are freely available via the internet and therefore more widely visible than articles published behind subscription barriers, some studies suggest that open access articles are twice as likely to be cited. Therefore, open access publication benefits the scientific community by making results of research immediately and freely available to all.


5.   If my article is published, how will it be cited?

Articles in JHEOR should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal.

Example: JHEOR 2013; 1:1-5

12.   How can I ensure that I receive JHEOR's emails?

Occasionally, email sent by JHEOR may be caught by spam filters. Most modern email software includes a spam or junk folder, and it is worth checking this from time to time. 

If you find emails from JHEOR in your spam or junk folder, you can tell your mail program that it is not spam by hitting the "Not spam" or "Not junk" button, and most mail programs will learn from this and will be less likely to misclassify subsequent emails.
