International Journal of Health Policy and Management (IJHPM) is a monthly open access, peer-reviewed journal which serves as an international and interdisciplinary setting for the dissemination of health policy and management research. It brings together individual specialties from different fields, notably health management/policy/economics, epidemiology, social/public policy, and philosophy into a dynamic academic mix.
IJHPM is intended to enhance communication among health system researchers, policy and decision makers, legislators, practitioners, educators, administrators, students, and other types of allied health professionals in the research and healthcare delivery systems. IJHPM publishes high quality editorials, perspectives, review articles, original research articles (both empirical and theoretical), policy briefs, commentaries, correspondences, hypotheses, and letters to editor. Geographical coverage including coverage of the poorest countries and low- and middle- income countries is of utmost importance in IJHPM.
All submissions to the IJHPM undergo a fair, supportive and completely blind peer-review process and our acceptance rate is about 16%. We follow the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals, issued by International Committee for Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), as well as the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) code of conduct for editors.
