"This is one of the best and most important reads on my calendar. The articles are typically well written, and the topic areas treated, despite coming from a wide range of fields and disciplines, are almost always of interest. As an author, I have found the submission, peer-review and acceptance process fair and accessible. If you, like me, are interested in the broad fields of organizational behaviour, and managerial and leadership studies applied to health, and if you want to appreciate high quality, state of the art research and theoretical development from multiple disciplines, you will subscribe to, read or use JHOM. Better still, publish in it - it's a great outlet for key scholarship in this field."
