What is Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations?
Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal of epidemiologic research methods, applications, critical overviews, teaching tools, perspectives, and other analytic work.
Epidemiology, is a critically important field in informing clinical, policy, and individual health decisions. It is a young field, experiencing major fundamental advances every year, however the high social value of its results means the science is primarily devoted to producing immediate results. Yet existing journals almost exclusively publish reports of new epidemiologic study results, leaving few pages available for other contributions to the science and its applications. Such contributions, including policy applications of epidemiologic findings, new methodology, critical overviews of the field, re-analyses of previous findings, and methods for teaching and communicating, require thoughtful, critical scholarly discussion.
Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations provides a forum for such contributions - anything in or about epidemiology other than just reporting new study findings. Of particular interest are articles about policy, philosophy, and practices in the field, which do not relegate to commentary or discussion, but are treated as analytic work. Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations emphasizes articles that are accessible and of interest to a broad range of health researchers, teachers, practitioners, and policy makers, rather than those that appeal primarily to a few specialists in a particular subfield.
Edited by Corinne Aragaki and Carl V. Phillips, Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations is supported by an international Editorial Board.
