Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research (Center for Public Health Systems and Services Research)
NOTE: Frontiers in PHSSR will not longer be accepting submissions or publishing issues of the online journal. Archives of previous issues may be found via the left hand side navigation menu.
The Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research on-line publication is no longer receiving financial support and has ceased operations. If this status changes, a notice will be posted on this webpage. Please send any questions to PHSSRCenter@uky.edu.
While active, Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research featured peer-reviewed articles that offered brief descriptions of preliminary findings from empirical studies or quality improvement projects that answered a question of importance regarding the organization, financing, and/or delivery of public health services; the structure, operation, and/or management of public health delivery systems; the application of quality improvement methods in public health settings; and/or the impact of these endeavors on population health. Frontiers was intended to provide quick access to actionable public health infrastructure research to improve public health practice at the state or local level. It is of use to practitioners, policymakers, and researchers.
Frontiers in Public Health Services and Systems Research is still a Gold-Level Open Access (Gold OA) journal. The archived articles are universally and permanently available, and there is no cost to readers or institutions.
