Announcing the launch of In Review
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.
