Implementation Research and Practice is an international, peer-reviewed, open access, online-only journal providing rapid publication of interdisciplinary research that advances the implementation in diverse contexts of effective approaches to assess, prevent, and treat mental health, substance use, or other addictive behaviors, or their co-occurrence, in the general population or among those at-risk or suffering from these disorders. The journal welcomes a wide range of research including: development and testing of strategies to advance the implementation, sustainment, and scale-out of effective prevention and treatment approaches; and, to decrease the use of approaches that are untested and ineffective; evaluation of the impact of innovative design, content, or delivery methods intended to optimize effective prevention and treatment approaches; evaluation of the effectiveness of novel assessment, preventive or treatment approaches that includes a robust evaluation of their implementation; development and evaluation of research methods to advance the science, such as innovative research design, measurement, analytic, and data and knowledge synthesis methods; research on the dissemination of information about effective approaches to the detection, prevention, and treatment of mental health, substance use, and other addictive behaviors; and, of information regarding effective methods to promote their adoption and implementation; systematic reviews in the field of implementation synthesizing the evidence for frameworks, measures, strategies, and outcomes, for instance. Outside journal scope is: research exclusively focused on health promotion or health behaviors in the general population without consideration of impact on mental health, substance use, or addiction; research exclusively focused on the intervention (its development, efficacy, effectiveness) with no evaluation of implementation processes or outcomes.
