The new international peer-reviewed journal “Research in Health Services & Regions – Methods, Results, Implementation” is now open for submissions!
Published by Springer Nature, Research in Health Services & Regions (RHSR) is an e-only open access journal publishing high-quality scientific original articles, reviews and brief communications. The journal provides a forum for scientists focusing on health services research – in and for regions. Regional comparisons, whether on a small scale or based on larger areas, are becoming more and more important for health policy decisions that cover a broad spectrum of aspects ranging from benchmarking to locally adapted interventions to the identification of unfavourable variation in health care delivery. Regional aspects are also fundamental when validating the implementation of medical care guidelines. Regional variations and demographic shifts influence access to health care, patient behaviour, and the range of available health care services.
The Wennberg International Collaborative (WIC) would like to congratulate the editors-in-chief Stef Groenewoud, Daniela Koller, Dominik Graf von Stillfried, and Thérèse Stukel on this endeavor.
