The Journal of Hospital Ethics

The Journal of Hospital Ethics

The Journal of Hospital Ethics (JOHE) is a specialized, peer reviewed periodical directed at clinicians, bioethicists, hospital administrators, and all manner of health care professionals. JOHE also serves as an educational resource for medical and surgical residency programs, ethics committees, and graduate schools across the country and abroad.

JOHE takes a common sense approach to bioethics education by including real cases encountered in hospital-based patient care, thoughtful and scholarly articles written by experienced healthcare professionals, and practical guidance to assist in resolving ethical uncertainties and conflict.

The Journal of Hospital Ethics is a partner journal of The American Society for Bioethics & Humanities (ASBH). Please visit JOHE's associated web page on the ASBH site, and learn more about this year's ASBH conference by following the links below:

Submission Guidelines

The Journal of Hospital Ethics (JOHE) is a specialized periodical focused on ethical issues as they relate to the care of patients in the context of hospital medicine. We welcome submissions of completed manuscripts for consideration for publication by authors with professional expertise and clinical involvement in the topics listed above. Submissions on topics involving clinical bioethics broadly construed will be considered, although papers focused specifically on future designated JOHE topics will be given priority. Articles should be scholarly and tightly focused to inform clinicians about how to approach and help resolve specific ethical issues that arise in a hospital setting.

Because JOHE represents a distinct focus, articles are subject to a rigorous editorial review process, followed by a standard peer review. Please limit article submissions to 2500 words. For further information regarding submission guidelines, please contact Christian Carrozzo at [email protected].
