How to publish in this journal


Health Systems promotes the idea that all aspects of health and healthcare delivery can be viewed from a systems perspective. The belief of the journal is that health and healthcare systems are characterized by complexity and interconnectedness, where "everything affects everything else". The principal aims of Health Systems is to bring together critical health operations and IT research and commentary and to provide a forum that welcomes diverse viewpoints and research approaches. We encourage submissions that provide an interdisciplinary perspective and insights to benefit multiple disciplines. We focus on submissions that look at healthcare systems and publish research that explores health IT and operations research, areas that are underrepresented by research publications. Each area has a dedicated editor that understand the domain, and the international view from a systems perspective. We welcome submissions in the following health systems areas: • Consumer health informatics & mHealth • Healthcare design science • Human computer interaction in health systems • Telemedicine • Health IT economics • Clinical informatics • Data mining and data analytics in health care • Health IT quality and evaluation • Public health informatics • Technical architecture of health IT • Mathematical modelling • Operations management • Performance measurement, and decision and risk analysis • Simulation and logistics • Health services research • Health systems quality and evaluation • Knowledge management • Systems dynamics • Health disparities modelling Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
