The journal Epidemiologic Methods was founded by Professors Tyler VanderWeele and Eric Tchetgen Tchetgen at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health to establish a journal 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.
The first volume of the journal was published in 2012. 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. All articles are fully open access within twelve months. There are no publication charges for articles in the journal.
