About the Journal

The International Journal of Evidence-Based Healthcare is a fully refereed journal that publishes manuscripts relating to evidence-based practice. It publishes papers containing reliable evidence to assist health professionals in their decision-making and to inform health professionals, students and researchers of outcomes, debates and developments in evidence-based healthcare. ​

The journal provides a unique home for publication of various types of systematic reviews (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods, economic, scoping and prevalence) and implementation projects including the transfer and utilisation of evidence in clinical practice.

The journal also accepts original research that uses quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods which explore the meaning, impact, cause, course, assessment, prevention, treatment and outcomes or economics of health problems relevant to clinical practice. Methodology papers that report on innovative methods of conducting and presenting primary research are also considered.

The journal welcomes submissions from all authors seeking to publish in the above areas. The journal also publishes research conducted by the Joanna Briggs Institute and its international collaborating centres, affiliated centres and groups.​
