The workshop discussant will be one of the referees of papers submitted and accepted as SI submissions. After the presentation of the work by the discussant, see Workshop Format, the author and the discussant have the opportunity to virtually meet one-on-one to exchange their thoughts in a back and forth.

In the week after the workshop, editors (Ezra Golberstein & Christoph Kronenberg) will conduct Zoom calls with the authors to help prioritize their efforts. Authors have until the end of September 2021 to submit to the SI via the Health Economics submission portal.

We would like to thank T. Glass and S. Mullaly at Wiley, Bruce Hollingsworth (Lancaster University) and Dörte Heger (LSCR, RWI) for their support. Further, we also like to thank our advisory board for offering their guidance.

The advisory board, in alphabetically order, consists of Jan Böhnke (University of Dundee), Janet Currie (Princeton University), Michael Darden (John Hopkins University), Richard G. Frank (Harvard University), Martin Karlsson (University Duisburg-Essen), John Mullahy (University of Wisconsin-Madison), Michael Shields (Monash University) and Ansgar Wübker (LSCR and Hochschule Harz).
