Clinico Economics is a peer-reviewed open-access journal focusing on Health Technology Assessment, Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research in the areas of diagnosis, medical devices, and clinical, surgical and pharmacological intervention. The economic impact of health policy and health systems organization also constitute important areas of coverage.


The aim of the journal is to rapidly and concisely publish outcomes studies, methodologies, reviews, analyses and reports across all disease areas. In addition, evaluations investigating prescribing behavior, practice guidelines, cost-of-illness, cost of treatment, cost-effectiveness, and cost-minimization analyses will be welcome. The journal will also specifically explore patient reported outcomes, satisfaction, preference and adherence, willingness-to-pay (WTP), cost-utility, cost-benefit, disease management strategies, and drug health & policy. Papers reporting on the effective deployment of diagnostic, screening, clinical and surgical interventions, and the use of medicines and devices to maximize healthcare resources for the benefit of the patient will be given particular priority.



  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Clinico Economics website.

  • Although Clinico Economics  receives many papers, unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.

  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. Clinico Economics has one of the fastest turnaround times of any medical journal in the world. Generally peer review is complete within 2-3 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-7 days of this. It is therefore very rare to have to wait more than 6 weeks for a final decision.

  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.
