Welcome to Global Implementation Research and Applications (GIRA), the journal of the Global Implementation Society (GIS). To improve outcomes across sectors and settings, GIS promotes global development and integration of effective implementation, improvement, and scaling practices. This journal serves as a global forum to share and learn from these efforts across disciplines, sectors, and settings. We seek manuscripts, as well as proposals for special issues, that address practical applications of implementation science and research, including but not limited to implementation challenges, perspectives, strategies, and outcomes.

Our diverse editorial board, some of whom contributed to this introduction, includes global representatives from behavioral health, child welfare, education, juvenile justice, public policy, and world health sectors, as well as purveyors and researchers who shaped the emergence of implementation science. Journal contributors and readers include administrators, educators, practitioners, purveyors, researchers, and stakeholders, as well as those who shape policy and social initiatives. Because a global audience from diverse disciplines, sectors, and settings may not yet share a common understanding of implementation, we begin with a brief history of implementation as context for presenting the aims and scope of this unique journal.
