About this Research Topic
Frontiers has organized a series of Research Topics to highlight the latest advancements in research across the field of epidemiology, with articles from the members of our accomplished Editorial Boards. This editorial initiative of particular relevance, led by Prof. Rolf Groenwold, Specialty Chief Editor of the Research Methods and Advances in Epidemiology section, is focused on new insights, novel developments, current challenges, latest discoveries, recent advances, and future perspectives in the field of research methods and advances in epidemiology.
The Research Topic solicits brief, forward-looking contributions from the editorial board members that describe the state of the art, outlining recent developments and major accomplishments that have been achieved and that need to occur to move the field forward. Authors are encouraged to identify the greatest challenges in the sub-disciplines, and how to address those challenges.
The goal of this special edition Research Topic is to shed light on the progress made in the past decade in the research methods and advances in epidemiology, and on its future challenges to provide a thorough overview of the field. This article collection will inspire, inform and provide direction and guidance to researchers in the field.
Keywords: Simulation studies, Data analysis, quantitative bias analysis, Novel epidemiologic methods, data collection, study designs, sampling methods, data linkage, measurement procedures
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
