The Journal of Health Organization and Management (JHOM) supports the application of health organization and management research into practice from a diverse range of perspectives. JHOM provides an international forum for the exchange of innovative and methodologically diverse studies and analyses.
The journal seeks empirical and theoretical perspectives, including both traditional approaches and critical contributions which question established paradigms, and as well as complete work also welcomes ideas still under development.  JHOM publishes double blind peer-reviewed research and case studies covering, but not limited to: 
  • International perspectives / comparisons 
  • Organizational strategies, (re)structures, cultures and dynamics of health care services 
  • Management, leadership and governance of health care services 
  • The inter-relationship of health and other areas of public policy and how these contribute to health improvement and wellbeing 
  • Education, development and training in healthcare services 
  • Industrial relations and human resource theory of healthcare services 
  • Health systems organization, financing and delivery 
  • Relationships between managers and clinicians  
The Viewpoints Section includes provocative, scholarly reviews of the existing knowledge base which contribute new ways of thinking about health organization and management analysis and discourse (up to 3,000 words).  For more information please contact the Viewpoints Section Editor.
JHOM is essential reading for academics and researchers, professionals, managers and students (including those studying management and organizational behaviour.  Readers are kept up-to-date with the latest developments in healthcare management theory and practice.
"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."
Professor Jeffrey Braithwaite, Founding Director of the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University, Australia
