About HTA

The Concept

Highly valuable articles are published after a thorough, peer-review process. The eJournal offers free access to quality-controlled HTA reports, as well as other articles within the area of HTA and innovations related to the health area; in addition papers about HTA methods, field reports, findings. To advance a worldwide exchange of information, among others publications of the International Network of Agencies for Health Technology Assessment (INAHTA) are integrated within the eJournal as well.

The HTA eJournal offers rapid, worldwide access to those interested in the fields of medicine and public health. Published HTA reports and scientific articles are enhanced with high resolution graphics and extensive tables. The integration of national and international reference databases, such as Pubmed Central or Medline, as well as the ability to link to the original data of the publications, permits further literature analysis. The journal is archived on the secure servers of the DIMDI, which provides perpetual access to both the articles and the appropriate citation.
