The committee convenes quarterly and reviews submitted publications to check if the described study section in the publication fits within HCA technical scope. The review by the HCA Publication Committee does not serve as peer review.

Any member of the HCA community can submit their publication for review through this google form. The committee will only review papers submitted with a complete draft or a link to a preprint.

Three committee members will be assigned to each paper and each will vote if the publication should become part of the HCA. If there is no consensus among 3 assigned committee members, the paper will be brought to the entire committee for additional review, to be decided by majority vote.

To submit your paper for review please complete this form.
