Introducing the Best of the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting
In this issue of Health Services Research, we are pleased to introduce a new featured section, The Best of the 2012 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM). As the title suggests, we anticipate publishing annually a set of articles based on abstracts submitted to the ARM and selected to be outstanding by both reviewers from the ARM themes and HSR's own editorial staff and reviewers.
HSR has been an official journal of AcademyHealth for many years, and this new feature is the latest in a string of successful collaborative efforts intended to showcase significant work in the field of health services research in a timely manner. Early in 2012, we requested from AcademyHealth staff members the top three abstracts from each of the ARM themes plus an additional two to three abstracts from those themes most reflective of HSR's missionand audience interests. From approximately 50 abstracts, the editors of HSR selected 15 and their authors were invited to submit a full manuscript for consideration for publication. The submitted manuscripts went through expedited review, culminating in the four articles appearing in this issue, with several more scheduled to appear in the December 2012 issue.
