Aims & Scope
The Journal of Innovation in Health Sciences Education (JIHSE) is a peer-reviewed, online journal focused on transformational educational approaches, emerging instructional technologies, and outcome-focused teaching and learning innovation in health sciences education (face to face, virtual, or hybrid).
JIHSE aims to:
- promote transformational educational approaches among health professionals,
- illuminate outcome-driven teaching and learning innovation within health sciences education,
- advance the application of evidence-based and technology-rich teaching approaches.
Scope of the Journal
JIHSE publishes papers on subjects aligned with its mission and goals, including, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Blended learning
- Simulation education
- Online learning

JIHSE will consider the following article types for publication
- Original research reports: articles written by the researchers who performed the research described; such reports typically present original data not previously reported.
- Systematic reviews/meta-analyses: literature reviews that use strict pre-established methodologies for identifying original research papers and/or unpublished data, and analyze the combined data from those resources.
- Literature reviews: surveys of existing literature that seek to describe the history, predominant themes, current state, or future directions of some area of research, practice, or scholarship.
- Case studies: descriptions of real-life individual situations or interventions within a given context.
- Analysis: thorough discussion, exploration, and analysis of important topics in the field.
- Guidelines and best practices: description of recommended practices in education reached by detailed examination of reported literature and/or case studies.
- Commentaries: shorter items that discuss an issue with varying degrees of reference to the literature. Likely topics might include recent research or developments affecting health sciences education.
