Journal of Central Asian Health Services Research (JCAHSR) is an interdisciplinary journal that promotes systems thinking and provides a single forum for researchers and practitioners of public health, health care services and management to exchange ideas and elucidate important developments. The aim is to disseminate knowledge rapidly across traditional disciplinary boundaries.

JCAHSR will publish high quality papers in the areas of theory, applications, novel ideas, and new tools for investigating and producing solutions to complex public health and health care management problems. Contributions from a wide range of international perspectives are welcome.

Examples of applicable interdisciplinary areas include: environmental and occupational health, health promotion and education, productivity analysis and operations analysis in health care, health information systems, health care financial management, strategic management in health care, managed care, health care economics, forecasting, simulation, data measurement, cost containment, international comparisons, risk and uncertainty, health insurance systems applications, epidemiology and biostatistical and econometric analysis in health care.

JCAHSR publishes work from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and institutional settings. The only two criteria for inclusion are: a rigorous scientific approach towards a health care problem; and a concern with the policy implications of the work. The journal therefore offers researchers, managers and policy makers a unique perspective on leading developments in scientific health care management.
