Best of the 2014 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting
In this issue of Health Services Research, we are pleased to publish the third installment of our featured section, “The Best of the 2014 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM).” We publish annually a set of articles based on abstracts submitted to the ARM and selected to be outstanding by both reviewers from the ARM theme groups 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 2014, we requested from AcademyHealth staff members the top three abstracts from each of the ARM themes whose author(s) had indicated an interest in “Best of ARM” publication, plus an additional two to three abstracts from those themes most reflective of HSR's mission and audience interests. From 26 submitted abstracts, the editors of HSR invited nine papers' authors to submit full manuscripts for consideration for publication. The submitted manuscripts went through expedited review, culminating in the seven articles appearing in this issue.
