Peer Review Journals

HR Magazine - The Society for Human Resource Management’s flagship publication has a worldwide circulation of 250,000 industry professionals and students. Pass-along readership extends its reach to 750,000. HR Magazine serves more senior executives than other HR trade publications and is recognized as an authoritative resource by readers and journalists alike. 


Health Affairs articles - Health Affairs authors should direct their papers to a diverse national audience interested in present and future health policy issues. New data, reports of major new trends, and serious proposals for reform are encouraged. The focus of Health Affairs articles is on policy implications, not elaborate discussions of methodology and data sources. Thus, we ask authors to keep discussion of data and methods brief. However, the data and methods must be adequately assessed in the peer review process. For this purpose, if a study's data and methods cannot be explained adequately in a brief discussion, we encourage authors to provide more methodological detail in the form of an appendix or other explanatory section for review purposes only.
