The American Journal of Accountable Care

About AJAC

Purpose: In December 2013 the publisher of The American Journal of Managed Care® introduced a new publication devoted to covering the nation’s transition from a fee-for-service payment delivery model to a payment for quality model: The American Journal of Accountable Care® (AJAC).

The Journal is keenly focused on healthcare reform, and, in turn, new practices required by the transition to new payment models tied to measures of healthcare quality. AJAC’s publication schedule and submissions criteria will allow for a more timely response to current issues in the public arena.

Evaluation Process: Manuscripts are evaluated by the editorial office to determine the significance of the information they contain and the relevance to the Journal’s mission. In addition to original research, the Journal publishes review articles, commentaries, trends from the field, editorials, and letters to the editor. Manuscripts selected for publication usually appear in print within 6 to 8 months from the date of acceptance.

Questions related to editorial content and submissions should be directed to Editor Christina Mattina,, 609-716-7777 ext. 412. 

Readership: The Journal reaches more than 40,000 healthcare professionals as a stakeholder-driven publication from the publisher that has brought you the best peer-reviewed research on managed care over the past 20 years.
