The International Journal of Privacy and Health Information Management (IJPHIM) publishes original research and reviews on all aspects of privacy and health information management. The journal serves as a unique venue for researchers as well as practitioners interested in reviewing the latest research on application of computational methods to various aspects of privacy and the management of healthcare information. Aspects of interest can cover such diverse topics as technological, medical, social, ethical, and legal aspects of healthcare data. The journal publishes three types of rigorous and high quality articles: research articles, research notes, and research reviews. Research articles are full papers presenting innovative findings that make substantial theoretical and empirical contributions to knowledge in the field by using various theoretical and methodological approaches. Research notes are novel, complete and concise high quality research articles; they may include exploratory studies, extensions of articles previously published in IJPHIM and summaries of doctoral theses in related areas. Research reviews are insightful and carefully crafted articles that conceptualize research areas, synthesize previous innovative findings, advance the understanding of the field, and identify and develop future research directions. Authors are welcome to submit manuscripts that qualify for any of these three categories.
