American Journal of Health Economics

The American Society of Health Economists is proud to announce the launch of the American Journal of Health Economics, which will be the official journal for ASHEcon.

The American Journal of Health Economics (AJHE) will provide a forum for in-depth analysis of institutional health care systems and individual health behaviors. The journal will permit high quality review of topics, both theoretical and applied, which cannot be examined as fully by general economics publications.

The articles appearing in AJHE will be authored by scholars from universities, private research organizations, government, and industry. Subjects of interest include competition between private health insurance providers, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, pharmaceutical regulation, medical device supply, the rise of obesity, the influence and growth of aging populations, and much more.

All ASHEcon members will receive the journal as part of their membership. Submission fees are waived for ASHEcon members. However, during the first 6 months, submission fees are waived for all manuscript submissions, including those from non-members.

The journal’s editor, Frank Sloan, is a past President of ASHEcon and J. Alexander McMahon Professor of Health Policy and Management and Professor of Economics at Duke University. The managing editor is Lindsey Eldred, JD, a research associate at the Department of Economics at Duke University.

The inaugural issue of the American Journal of Health Economics will appear in the first quarter of 2015.
