FRITT - Frie tidsskrifter fra UiO


Velkommen til FRITT – Frie tidsskrifter fra UiO.

Universitetsbiblioteket og USIT har gått sammen om å etablere tjenesten FRITT – Frie tidsskrifter fra UiO - for forskere og fagmiljøer ved UiO som ønsker å starte opp fagfellevurderte Open Access-tidsskrifter, eller gjøre om allerede eksisterende tidsskrift til Open Access.

FRITT tilbyr en ferdig teknisk løsning for nettpublisering, mens det enkelte tidsskrift må stille med redaksjon, administrasjon og fagfeller.

Open Access-tidsskrifter er fritt tilgjengelig på internett, og brukerne trenger derfor ikke abonnement for å kunne lese artiklene.

The Online Guide to Open Access Journals Publishing gir informasjon om opprettelse og drift av Open Access-tidsskrifter.

For mer informasjon, kontakt fritt-info@journals.uio.no

Nordic Journal of Health Economics


Aim and Scope:

The Nordic Journal of Health Economics publishes empirical and theoretical research within the field of Health Economics. We aim to focus broadly and invite contributions on health economic topics from researchers both inside and outside of the Nordic countries. Special, but not exclusive, attention is given to topics that are relevant to the Nordic setting and to Nordic research agendas.

We especially welcome contributions including the following topics:

1) Production of health and health care;

2) Demand for health and health care;

3) Financing of health care;

4) Measurement of health; health behaviors and policy interventions;

5) Efficiency and distributional aspects of health;

6) Health care system and organization;

7) Economic incentives in health care;

8) Economics of social and long term health care; and

9) General survey articles.

We also welcome shorter contributions, comments, and discussions on developments in Health Economics and health policy reforms.

Call for papers: The value of new health technologies

Special issue of Nordic Journal of Health Economics

Society benefits from new health technologies which improve health and welfare outcomes. For example, new health technologies may increase the productivity of the health care sector and/or reduce the costs of health production. Nevertheless, innovative new technologies are by necessity associated with many aspects of uncertainty in their early phases. The uncertainty is faced by researchers and health industry that develop the new health technologies as well as the health care systems who are the future payers for the new technologies. Some new technologies will change treatment paradigms and move the health production possibility curve to a new level, while others will just lead to minor improvements. Yet others could in the long run prove to entail unforeseen risks or fail to meet expectations on benefits.

The measurement of the value of new health technologies is an essential prerequisite for the efficient use of resources. Yet it faces several methodological as well as practical challenges. Moreover, the capability of the health care system to accurately value new medical technologies, and pay for it, will be essential for agents’ incentives for research and development. Another aspect is that the medical market is today global with large transnational companies in the pharmaceutical and medical technology industries. At the same time, payers work under local national regulations and local financial strength.

Several key concepts in economic analysis play an important role in understanding, and ideally improving, the efficient use of new health technologies, e.g. incentives, theory of risk and uncertainty, ex-ante and ex-post valuation, bottom-up and top-down methodologies, return on investment, etc. Economists may thus contribute with valuable analyses with great impact for policy making.

Nordic Journal of Health Economics will devote an entire special issue to economic papers on the value of new health technologies. Papers should have a health economic approach to the research questions addressed. We welcome theoretical pieces of work, empirical studies and mixtures of both.
