Oxford University Press (OUP) has announced a new agreement with global health and humanitarian relief organization Project HOPE to publish its open-access journal, Health Affairs Scholar. The new international open-access journal will be dedicated to health policy and emerging health services research. In turn, it will build upon the legacy of Project HOPE’s existing title Health Affairs, and support OUP's mission.
Led by Editor-in-Chief Kathryn A. Phillips, Professor of Health Economics and Health Services Research at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Health Affairs Scholar will publish core health policy topics, including health care costs, access, quality, and equity, as shared by a multidisciplinary community of scholars and policy leaders. The journal will also highlight innovative translational research in healthcare technology, population health, and global health to support Project HOPE's work addressing the world's most significant public health challenges, transforming lives, and uplifting communities.
Open access is a key part of how OUP supports its mission to achieve the broadest possible dissemination of high-quality research. As a fully open-access journal, Health Affairs Scholar will lead the field of health services research in establishing equitable practices, patterns, and expectations and continues the Press's progress to ensure that open access is available in a sustainable way that supports research publications for their communities.Click here to read the original press release.
