New Journals from BE Press

Forum for Health Economics & Policy

Forum for Health Economics & Policy showcases articles in key substantive areas that lie at the intersection of health economics and health policy. The Health Economics section emphasizes novel empirical and theoretical work on health care markets or behavior related to individual or population health. The Health Policy section highlights health-related research directed towards a sophisticated policy audience or health services researchers. Edited by Alan Garber of Stanford University, Dana Goldman of Rand, and Tomas Philipson of the University of Chicago, Forums are chosen by the Editorial Board to reflect topics where additional research is needed by economists and where the field is advancing rapidly.

International Journal of Biostatistics

International Journal of Biostatistics highlights new biostatistical models and methods, new statistical theory, as well as original applications of statistical methods, for important practical problems arising from the biological, medical, public health, and agricultural sciences. It is intended that the journal cover the entire range of Biostatistics, from theoretical advances to relevant and sensible translations of a practical problem into a statistical framework, including advances in biostatistical computing. Electronic publication also allows for data and software code to be appended, and opens the door for reproducible research allowing readers to easily replicate analyses described in a paper.

International Journal of Food Engineering

International Journal of Food Engineering is devoted to engineering disciplines related to processing foods. The areas of interest include heat, mass transfer and fluid flow in food processing; food microstructure development and characterization; application of artificial intelligence in food engineering research and in industry; food biotechnology; and mathematical modeling and software development for food processing purposes.

Journal of Complementary and Integrative Medicine

To facilitate information transfer to the consumer, summaries of each article will also be published in easy-to understand and colloquial language. When feasible, selected articles will be published in other languages to facilitate distribution of information to a larger international community.
