Help for Authors



Authors may check the status of submitted papers by logging in to Health Affairs' online manuscript processing system. Go to the login screen and log in using your user ID and password. If you have forgotten your user ID or password, go to the login screen, enter your e-mail address in the "Password Help" field, then click on "Go." You will receive e-mail with instructions on how to obtain a user ID and password.


Once you have logged in, you will be at your main menu. Click on "Author Center," then under "My Manuscripts," select the "Submitted Manuscripts" link. This page will display manuscripts of yours that are currently under consideration at Health Affairs, along with their status.


If you have any questions about the process, please contact Health Affairs' executive editor, Don Metz, at or 301-347-3907.
