NEW YORK, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Environments Research & Design Journal (HERD) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, quarterly journal whose mission is to enhance the knowledge and practice of evidence-based healthcare design by disseminating research findings, discussing issues and trends, and translating research to practice. The vision of HERD is to improve healthcare outcomes as a result of enhancing healthcare environments for those receiving and giving care.
HERD is the only one of its kind featuring evidence-based articles for health environments design and outcomes related to organizational performance and the human experience. The commitment to an interdisciplinary design process is reflected in HERD's interdisciplinary Editorial Board with representatives from healthcare (including nursing, medicine and healthcare administration), the design industry (architecture, engineering, interiors, graphics), environmental and behavioral psychology, neurosciences, systems and organizational effectiveness, art and music fields, and other complementary fields. The journal also centralizes knowledge about healthcare innovations and designs and addresses significant challenges in the healthcare industry to improve patient outcomes, to reduce errors and to enhance the work environments for healthcare professionals. As a translational journal linking research to practice, HERD features both rigorous research from academic sources and applied research from practice. Each will be held to high standards.
HERD features research papers, opinion papers, theory papers, metanalysis/metasynthesis, book reviews, case studies, independent post occupancy evaluations, letters to the editors, and responses to letters/papers. We anticipate HERD to generate and further the discussion of evidence and ideas related to health environments.
