The American Journal of Health Economics (AJHE) joins the University of Chicago Press journals program

We are excited to announce that the American Journal of Health Economics (AJHE), the official journal of the American Society of Health Economists (ASHEcon), will join the University of Chicago Press journals program beginning in Winter 2020 (Volume 6, Issue 1). The quarterly journal will continue to be published in print and online, and ahead-of-print articles will be published on this site at the end of 2019. E-book editions of every issue, beginning with Volume 6, Issue 1, will be available to ASHEcon members at no charge.

The move coincides with the launch of AJHE’s new manuscript submission and peer-review system, Editorial Manager (EM). Please note the following procedures for current and future submissions to the journal:

AJHE provides a forum for the in-depth analysis of health care markets and individual health behaviors. The articles appearing in the journal are authored by scholars from universities, private research organizations, government, and industry and cover topics including competition among private insurers, hospitals, and physicians; impacts of public insurance programs; pharmaceutical innovation and regulation; medical device supply; the rise of obesity and its consequences; the influence and growth of aging populations; and more. AJHE readers include economists, health services researchers, health policy researchers, and health care clinicians from universities, private research organizations, government, and industry; and the membership of ASHEcon.

The University of Chicago Press publishes more than 80 scholarly journals that cover a wide range of disciplines, from the humanities and the social sciences to the life and physical sciences. In addition to working with departments and faculty of the University of Chicago, the University of Chicago Press publishes influential scholarly journals on behalf of learned and professional societies and associations, foundations, museums, and other not-for-profit organizations. All are peer-reviewed publications, with readerships that include scholars, scientists, and practitioners, as well as other interested, educated individuals.
