Although there are a lot of journals in the field of management and health, there are a few, if any, journals focusing exclusively on management issues in the healthcare system. Management Issues in Healthcare System (MIHS) aims to bridge the perceived gap regarding a journal that exclusively focuses on exploring major issues of management in the healthcare system in depth. This journal caters to the immediate and urgent needs of policy-makers, managers, practitioners, experts, and researchers in this field of inquiry. MIHS publishes empirical quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method and theoretical research articles in the scope of healthcare system management, health policy and planning, strategies, healthcare innovation, and program interventions and related issues which inquire into the emergent and urgent need of the practitioners in the field of the healthcare system. 

Review Process

MIHS aims to expedite the double-blind peer-reviewing process. If judged to be suitable for the journal, the manuscripts will be forwarded to at least three reviewers drawn from among experts in the field. Upon receiving comments given by two of the reviewers, the journal will announce the results of reviews to the authors. See the Peer Review Process section.

Archiving Policy 

MIHS follows public archiving options, Internet archive, open-access, public archive databases, and CIKD's private institutional repository.  Authors are also allowed to deposit versions of their work in an institutional or other repository of their choice without embargo, such as SSRN and arXiv.
