Aims and scope

The Journal of Health Organization and Management (JHOM) is seeking contributions that push the boundaries of knowledge in health organization theory and health management. We encourage submissions that offer both empirical and theoretical perspectives, especially those that challenge conventional paradigms and offer innovative insights.

Our goal is to foster a rich academic dialogue that contributes to the advancement of healthcare management and organization. We look forward to receiving submissions that reflect diverse methodologies, interdisciplinary approaches, and thought-provoking perspectives.

JHOM welcomes a variety of submission types, including:

  • Empirical studies that provide new insights into health organization and management practices.
  • Theoretical and conceptual papers that offer novel frameworks or reexamine existing ones in the light of current challenges and developments.
  • Critical contributions that question established norms and propose alternative approaches to healthcare management.
  • Preliminary findings, study protocols and viewpoint papers that encourage academic discourse and the development of emerging ideas.

We are particularly interested in papers that focus on organisation and management issues relating to

  1. Organizational Behavior and Leadership in Healthcare
  2. Healthcare Quality, Safety, and Performance Metrics
  3. Innovation, Technology, Healthcare Information Systems and Artificial Intelligence in Health Care
  4. Healthcare Economics, Financial Management, and Resource Allocation
  5. Health Policy, Law, and Regulatory Compliance
  6. Global Health Leadership and System Sustainability
  7. Patient-Centered Care and Integrated Health Services
  8. Diversity, Inclusion, and Workforce Management in Healthcare
  9. Healthcare Marketing, Stakeholder Engagement, and Public Relations
  10. Ethics and Governance in Healthcare

"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."
