HSR Sponsorships

Interested in sponsoring a special issue?

HSR publishes thematic special issues and sections that reflect the journal's values of scientific integrity, methodological rigor, policy and practice relevance, and timeliness.  Many special issues are the result of papers written for a conference or a response to a thematic call for papers.

Publishing papers as a collection in a special issue or section allows organizations to disseminate information to the field without the costs associated with producing and promoting a separate publication. It also allows organizations to enjoy the benefits of HSR 's peer review process, prestige, and readership.

HSR will accept special issue proposals on an ongoing basis to review throughout the year. The submission deadlines are as follows which are followed by a review period by the journal. Feedback to the submitting organization/individual will be communicated within 3 weeks of the submission deadline.

If you are interested in sponsoring a special issue, email hsr@aha.org with a topic and description of the special issue.
