Call for Papers: Health Care Reform and Comparative Effectiveness: Implications for Surgeons FREE

Arch Surg. 2010;145(4):338. doi:10.1001/archsurg.2009.281.

In 2010, we are soliciting manuscripts on the topic Health Care Reform and Comparative Effectiveness: Implications for Surgeons. The editorial board has selected this topic as our year-long theme. We are interested in papers that compare different interventions and strategies to treat surgical conditions. These interventions could be randomized, preferably prospective, and have adequate follow-up so that patients and other clinicians can use the information to make decisions on care. Registries, health data sets, and meta-analyses would be excellent sources for articles. Accepted manuscripts will be given priority publication. Please indicate in your cover letter that your manuscript is to be considered for this theme.

We have seen a change in the manuscripts submitted to Archives over the past year that has led to our increased impact factor as more surgeons and physicians cite our studies in their articles. Now we would like to increase our impact factor in patient care by publishing articles that focus on comparative effectiveness.
