Global Implementation Research and Applications (New Journal) Seeks Submissions

June 19, 2020

Implementation research and practice shape quality improvement and change efforts across the globe in differing disciplines and settings. Until now, there has not been a journal that provides participants in these endeavors the opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences and perspectives.

Global Implementation Research and Applications, the official journal of the Global Implementation Society, provides consumers and stakeholders, practitioners and policy makers, administrators and supervisors, as well as researchers from any discipline, setting or endeavor the means to do so.

Our global, diverse editorial board is listed below. We are accepting manuscripts for publication in the journal’s inaugural editions in the spring and summer of 2021. We offer support to potential authors for whom English is not their primary language, as well as support for APA formatting and style.

We seek rigorous studies, perspectives, experiences, commentaries, book reviews and other types of submissions from administrators, consumers, practitioners, policy makers, researchers supervisors and other stakeholders from any discipline, global region or setting.
