Submit an article

The APJHM invites ACHSM members and non-members to submit original research and conceptual manuscripts that are consistent with the mission of the APJHM and that facilitate communication and discussion of topical issues among practicing managers, academics and policy makers.

Of particular interest are research and review papers that are rigorous in design, and provide new data to contribute to the health manager's understanding of an issue or management problem. Practice papers that aim to enhance the conceptual and/or coalface skills of managers will also be preferred.

Five types of submission are accepted for publication by the journal:

  • Research article (empirical-quantitative and qualitative- and/or theoretical)
  • Research note
  • Review article (eg policy review, trends, review or meta-analysis of research)
  • Analysis of management practice (eg case study, interview, commentary)
  • Book review.
  • Articles from the private sector will be welcomed along with those addressing public sector issues.

Submission of articles

ACHSM has invested in an online manuscript software system (Scholarone Manuscripts) which will greatly improve our contributors experience in submitting an article at the same time as enhancing our capacity to work through the peer-review process.

Contributions should be submitted online from this link - - as a 'New User" you will be asked to register  (a once off registration process) - you will be prompted to create your own ID and password for future access.

If you experience any difficulties please email the Editor APJHM at

Readers of the Journal are also invited to express their views by writing a letter to the Editor about possible themes for future issues or about articles that have appeared in the journal.
