Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations
Epidemiol Perspect Innovat
Published/Hosted by Springer.
Discontinued in 2012. Epidemiologic Perspectives & Innovations is an open access, peer-reviewed, online journal of epidemiologic research methods, applications, critical overviews, teaching tools, perspectives, and other analytic work. Epidemiology, is a critically important field in informing clinical, policy, and individual health decisions. It is a young field, experiencing major fundamental advances every year, however the high social value of its results means the science is primarily devoted to producing immediate results. Yet existing journals almost exclusively publish reports of new epidemiologic study results, leaving few pages available for other contributions to the science and its applications. Such contributions, including policy applications of epidemiologic findings, new methodology, critical overviews of the field, re-analyses of previous findings, and methods for teaching and communicating, require thoughtful, critical scholarly discussion.
