Web First

Health Affairs' Web First articles appear online ahead of publication in the journal. These peer-reviewed journal articles, formerly called "Web Exclusives," are selected based on timeliness and relevance to the current health policy debate.


Archived Web First/Web Exclusives: All Web First and Web Exclusive articles are archived by year, below. Beginning in 2010, Web First articles will appear in subsequent issues of the journal. Since 2006, Web Exclusives are linked within the Table of contents of Health Affairs issues. Browse table of contents.


Web Exclusives not yet associated with a journal appear below on the yearly Web index pages.
