Chicago, February 15, 2023 — JAMA Health Forum today announces its partnership with AcademyHealth, an agreement that will strengthen the journal’s connections to AcademyHealth’s premier membership of health services researchers, policymakers, and health care practitioners and stakeholders.
Under the partnership, AcademyHealth recognizes JAMA Health Forum as an official journal of AcademyHealth, joining several other major health policy journals. AcademyHealth will encourage its over 4,000 members to submit their research articles to JAMA Health Forum, and JAMA Health Forum will have a presence on the AcademyHealth website and at the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting. AcademyHealth will also be featured on the JAMA Health Forum website.
“I am delighted to begin this partnership with AcademyHealth, which is fully aligned with JAMA Health Forum,” said John Z. Ayanian, MD, MPP, Editor in Chief, JAMA Health Forum. “The peer-reviewed research and opinion articles published in JAMA Health Forum – including many articles written by AcademyHealth members – are of great interest to AcademyHealth’s membership. The JAMA Network shares AcademyHealth’s commitment to advancing the fields of health services research and health policy to improve health and promote health equity.”
JAMA Health Forum is an international, peer-reviewed, online, open access journal that addresses health policy and strategies affecting medicine, health, and health care. The journal publishes original research, evidence-based reports, and opinion about national and global health policy; innovative approaches to health care delivery; and health care economics, access, quality, safety, equity, and reform. A member of the JAMA Network, JAMA Health Forum is fully indexed in MEDLINE/PubMed and the Web of Science.
“AcademyHealth is a critical bridge between research producers and the policymakers and practitioners who use that evidence to improve health care access, quality, equity, outcomes and cost,” said AcademyHealth President and CEO Lisa Simpson MB, BCh, MPH. “Adding JAMA Health Forum to our Official Journal offerings expands our capacity for supporting the bidirectional flow of information between evidence and policy.”
AcademyHealth is the professional home for health services researchers, policy analysts, and practitioners, and a leading, non-partisan resource for the best in health services research and policy.
