Launched in 2013, eGEMs has published over 170 papers with more than 160,000 downloads — all highlighting cutting-edge work from leaders in the field and share emerging approaches to redesigning the health system by harnessing the power of data.

Since its launch in 2013, eGEMs has been supported by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Quality and Research (AHRQ) that allowed us to operate as a full open access journal without article processing charges (APCs) for authors. However, with the recent close of that grant, in order to be sustainable and maintain our open access status, eGEMs will begin charging authors an APC of $1,800 per accepted paper submitted via the new platform. This fee covers the cost of managing rigorous peer review, thorough copyediting and layout design as well as publication and promotion.
