About CHP Journal


Platform for alternative analyses and innovative ideas that shape health policy.

Canadian Health Policy (CHP) is the online journal of Canadian Health Policy Institute (CHPI). CHP publishes the work of CHPI affiliated researchers and external authors on a fee-for-article basis for topics relevant to our mission.

Editorial standards.

Prior to publication, all CHP research is subject to rigorous non-ideological review and critique by CHP editorial staff and CHPI research staff, as well as by external experts in health economics and health policy. CHP review is a double-blind process whenever possible, meaning that it is preferred that the author(s) not be identified to the reviewers, nor that the reviewers be identified to the author(s). CHP editorial staff manages the review process as neutral referees. Published research is ultimately open to intellectual debate, scholarly scrutiny, critical examination, empirical verification and methodological replication to assess and confirm its accuracy and validity.

Article submissions.

CHP will consider article submissions representing diverse perspectives and sources of expertise including (current or retired): academics, actuaries, analysts, consultants, economists, epidemiologists, government, grad students, health professionals, hospitals, industry, journalists, lawyers, patient groups and think-tanks. External authors can submit unformatted, fully referenced article drafts (MSWord) for consideration by email at: managing.editor@canadianhealthpolicy.com. Enclose author(s): full name, contact info, education credentials, professional titles, occupational affiliations and funding disclosures.
