My colleague Eric Tchetgen Tchetgen and I have launched a new journal, Epidemiologic Methods, devoted entirely to methodology for epidemiologic research. Most social science fields have one or more journals devoted exclusively to methodology. Epidemiologic Methods provides such a journal for the field of epidemiology.
Three volumes of the journal are now published. More information about the journal along with submission instructions are available on the journal’s website:
The journal aims to more quickly bring novel methodology to the epidemiologic community, foster closer ties and interactions between epidemiologists and statisticians, provide a forum for longer or more technical papers on epidemiologic methods, and serve as a repository of methodologic contributions focused on advancing and improving epidemiologic analysis.
Papers on the development of new methods, review articles, commentaries, tutorials, letters to the editor, and book reviews concerning epidemiologic methods are all welcome.
The first issue of the journal was published in 2012. All articles published in 2012-2014 will be permanently open access. All articles published subsequently will be fully open access within twelve months. There are no publication charges for articles in the journal.
