Encyclopedia of Evidence in Pharmaceutical Public Health and Health Services Research in Pharmacy

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Aims and Scope
In health services research in pharmacy, the numbers of papers, publications, and research articles are increasing. However, the quality is questionable, and the impact of this research is not visible at the global level. In the past, this research was criticized because several studies published in this field lack rigor. Moreover, the methodological approaches were not robust to generate the necessary evidence for policy change.

In this context, the current encyclopedia has been planned. It covers issues related to “pharmacy practice research”, “pharmaceutical public health research” as well as broader “health services research in pharmacy”.

The encyclopedia will cover the evidence generated in the above-mentioned areas. It will also synthesise and narrate regarding what evidence turned into policy, action and change. This comprehensive major reference work will also document areas, strategies, methodologies, research, and theories in this field. The encyclopedia will help us to see the gaps and to build a map of evidence and impact as well as a historical narrative on the topic.
