Focus and Scope
China Health Review intends to 1) serve as a scholarly outlet for original health policy and system sciences research with special attention to, but not limited to, topics related to population health and healthcare in China; and 2) promote and disseminate evidence and best practice in health policy, practice, and education pertinent to China and the general health sciences by providing research and policy updates, topical reviews, and other appropriate information.
China Health Review will collect quality original research and reviews in fields including, but not limited to,
- health policy and management,

- disease control and prevention,
- statistical methods, and
- global health.
The Review will publish opinions and comments as appropriate. As the official journal of the CHPAMS, the Review publishes announcements and updates of the Society.
Although the journal title has a certain degree of region specificity, China Health Review welcomes submissions from any region without prejudice.
Peer Review Process
The China Health Review adopts a single-blind review process for the original research and topical review sections. Each manuscript would be screened by the editor for general suitability and send out for a double-blind review process if deemed appropriate for the Review. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editor then decides whether the article should be acceptable. Sections such as Perspective, Interviews, and History Speaks are invited. Interested authors should contact the editor before submitting a manuscript.
The review period is generally within two to three months.
It is requested that authors should have their paper checked with a native English speaker colleague or professional for English syntax, grammar, etc., before the submission of the final version. Manuscript with serious writing problems cannot be accepted.
