Call for Papers on Emerging Topics in Health Decision Analysis
Decision analysis is well suited to dealing with emerging topics in health care, which are often characterized by the need to make decisions in the face of uncertainty, conflicting objectives, limited evidence, and complex trade-offs. The INFORMS journal Decision Analysis is therefore seeking papers on emerging topics in health decision analysis.
A wide range of topics will be considered for the special issue. With regard to infectious disease epidemics and emerging threats, such as the recent worldwide coronavirus epidemic, topics may include but are not limited to:
Papers submitted to Decision Analysis will go through the regular refereeing process, and must meet standards for archival publications. Papers must also fit the scope of the journal; see https://pubsonline.informs.org/page/deca/editorial-statement. Thus, for example, a paper that provided only a mathematical model of disease spread, without a connection to decision making, might be appropriate for another journal, but not for Decision Analysis.
The journal commits to rapid turnaround of papers for this special issue, with the following expected timeline:
