Aims & Scope

The International Journal of Health Sciences Education(IJHSE) is an open-source, semi-annual peer-reviewed publication that provides an interdisciplinary forum for information exchange spanning all aspects of health care education in both academic and practice settings on an international level.

Submissions may address any topic covered in courses taken by students in health science disciplines (e.g., audiology, medicine, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, psychology, public health, social work, speech therapy, and pre-professional), as well as issues, theories, or trends in teaching in the health sciences, evidence-based health care, policies and research. IJHSE welcomes a variety of topics for submission, including original research, theory, educational innovations, review of educational material, and technology integration. Additionally, all forms of methodologies and analysis are welcome to include quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods. We also encourage student submissions. A non-exhaustive list of topics that are appropriate include:

  • Teaching Methods
  • Online, Hybrid, and Distance Learning
  • Curriculum and Instructional Design
  • Assessment
  • Community Engaged Learning/Service Learning
  • Pedagogy
  • Simulations
  • Blended Learning
  • Professionalism
  • Interprofessional Education
  • Use of Educational Technology & Innovation
  • Experiential Education (Internships, Field Work, Residencies, Rotations, etc.)
    • The target audience is faculty, students, administrators, and professional staff in all health sciences settings. Successful submissions will be published on a rolling basis.
