International Journal of Health Economics and Management

ISSN: 2199-9023 (Print) 2199-9031 (Online)


The former International Journal of Health Care Finance and Economics (IJHFE), published since 2001, will be published with a new name, additional focus, new format, and an augmented editorial board from January, 2015.

The new name for the journal, International Journal of Health Economics and Management (IJHEM), emphasizes its interest in and focus on health economics, health management, and the combination of the two associated with business school programs in health management, economics, and strategy.

The renamed journal will combine the health economics focus of IJHFE with the emphasis on management and policy that was part of Health Management, Policy, and Innovation (HMPI), formerly published at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

In addition to seeking to publish papers on health economics, the new name emphasizes the interest to publish papers in health management and policy. In addition, the journal seeks shorter papers and notes in either health economics or management that make substantive points but are too short for traditional journal article publication and too long for blogs or opinion pieces.

To reflect the broadened emphasis of the journal, the senior editorial board will be expanded to include Professors David Dranove and Leemore Dafny of Northwestern (former editors of HMPI) and Professor Guy David of the Wharton School, an expert on market design and organization. Pedro Pita Barros, Robert Town, and Mark Pauly will remain as senior editors.

The efficient electronic submission system provided by Springer will continue to characterize the journal, as will the policy of quick online-first publication of accepted articles ahead of formal publication in issues.
