For over 60 years, Medical Care Research and Review (formerly Medical Care Review) has been a pioneering force in the area of health services research. During that time, the journal evolved from publishing abstracts to a well-respected journal carrying critical reviews of literature on organizational structure, economics, and the financing of health and medical care systems. Today, the journal's focus has expanded to reflect the growth of the field and the increasing importance of health services research -- while still maintaining the high standards that have kept Medical Care Research and Review at the forefront of health care research for over half a century.
