About HInT


High-quality contributions are released for publication upon the completion of a reliable peer review process. The peer review process serves above all to optimise submitted articles. Articles in the fields of Horizon Scanning (Early Awareness), Health Needs, Health Impact, Health Technology Assessment, Disinvestment and on innovations in relation to health and prevention are freely accessible, as are specialist articles on the methodology of evidence-based research, experience and user reports, primary care studies and study results.

To foster the exchange of information worldwide, contributions from the International Network of Health Technology Assessment Agencies (INAHTA) and other international and national associations in the field of health (life sciences) are also included in the journal.

Technologies considered include pharmaceutical products and medical devices in addition to clinical medicine procedures and public health programs. Technologies or procedures at either a local level (e.g. in a hospital) or system level (e.g. administrative area) of application can be established or discussed. They not only incorporate classical occupational groups in the clinical field (such as nurses and physicians) but also explicitly other occupational groups related to health in the sense of "health in all policies".

The e-journal GMS Health Innovations and Technologies  offers quick worldwide access to those interested in the fields of medicine and health sciences. Published evidence-based and scientific articles are enhanced by integrating high resolution images, extensive tables and other multimedia documents. The integration of national and international reference databases (PubMed Central, Medline, etc.) as well as access to original data of publications permits further expansion of the range of information. The cooperation with national structures in Germany ensures perpetual access and citation.

The journal also explicitly aims to support communication within the scientific community. A discussion forum is available on the network's website after completing the free registration.

In addition to the original article, it is possible to include appendices in other languages. These appendices are not part of the scientific publication and are therefore not subject to quality assurance procedures.
