Call for Papers: Implementation Science in Pediatric Health Care

JAMA Pediatrics will devote an entire issue in spring 2015 to implementation science research in child health, both in the United States and abroad. We are interested in rigorous studies that test hypotheses about methods to translate research in those steps between efficacy trials and population health. This will include studies on the most effective strategies to change professional behavior; create informed, activated consumers; and guide the behavior of administrators and health care organizations and policy makers.

Manuscripts submitted before October 2014 will have the best chance of acceptance. Full details on submission and author guidelines are available at the Information for Authors page.
