In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, in April 2020 the AJHE began a fast track review for time-sensitive, COVID-19-related health economics research papers. Given the large number of COVID-19 papers submitted and the ongoing challenges facing referees, we have found it increasingly difficult to maintain the goal of a 2-week turnaround on reviews. Consequently, we are discontinuing the fast track review option for COVID-19 related papers. However, we continue to maintain a fast turnaround, with an average time to first decision of just over 1-month. We hope you will continue to consider AJHE for any of your health economics papers, including those related to COVID-19.
