Aims and scope

Implementation Science is a pioneering, highly-accessed journal dedicated to publishing evidence regarding methods for promoting the uptake of consolidated research findings into routine healthcare practice and health policy. 

Implementation Science provides a unique, multidisciplinary platform for research on implementation strategies, including their development, outcomes, economics, process by which effects are achieved, and factors associated with implementation outcomes. The journal has a particular interest in rigorous studies and novel, theory-based approaches, and covers implementation science across the full spectrum of healthcare services and settings.

Featured commentary

© 1xpert / FotoliaImplementation science in resource-poor countries and communities

Implementation science in resource-poor countries and communities is arguably more important than implementation science in resource-rich settings, because resource poverty requires novel solutions to ensure that research results are translated into routine practice and benefit the largest possible number of people. Here, authors Yapa and Bärnighausen analyze opportunities for implementation science in resource-poor countries and communities, as well as threats to the realization of these opportunities.
