IJHPR operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous.
Submitted manuscripts are screened by one of the Editors and/or Editorial Board members and appropriate manuscripts are sent to at least two peer reviewers, one based in Israel and one based outside of Israel. Edited by Avi Israeli and Bruce Rosen, IJHPR is supported by an expert Editorial Board that brings together leading scholars and policymakers from Israel and abroad. It includes past and present Editors and Editorial Board members from leading international journals in the field (The European Journal of Public Health, Health Affairs, Health Services Research, Inquiry, The Milbank Quarterly).
Israel Journal of Health Policy Research is the official publication of The Israel National Institute for Health Policy and Health Services Research.
