International Health Care Research
The DNVF will publish the Journal "International Health Care Research" for the first time in 2023, initially twice a year as an extra issue of the Journal "Das Gesundheitswesen". It will be published online and open access.
The Journal is nationally and internationally oriented and is intended to increase the visibility and awareness of German health care research in an international context. The Journal will publish methodological and practical high-quality studies of health care research with a special focus on "current issues" such as the use of health services-related data, digitalisation, regional health care services concepts, health care services monitoring, new forms of health care services, register-based studies for knowledge generation, etc. It will address a broad, interdisciplinary international audience. Currently, two issues with eight articles per year are planned. Articles accepted for publication after a peer-review process will be published online open access selectively in German and/or English.
Due to the cooperation with the Journal das Gesundheitswesen, we gain the benefit of being listed in PubMed from the beginning and additionally also receive an impact factor (which corresponds to that of „Das Gesundheitswesen“). The maximum article length is 25 000 characters including spaces. Articles will be published open access and an open access fee of 1,250 € plus VAT (1487.50 € gross) will be charged. Special thanks to the Thieme-Verlag for the 50% discount compared to the regular fee for open access publications. Here you can find the author information of the Thieme Verlag >>.
