Mecosan is the premier quarterly journal in Italy in the field of healthcare management. Its mission is to improve the understanding of how healthcare organizations and systems function and to promote the diffusion of good managerial practices at all levels. In order to pursue its mission, the journal draws together and learns from different academic disciplines (economics, statistics, medicine, sociology and law), although its conceptual roots are firmly grounded in the Italian approach to managerial studies. Considering the role of the public sector in healthcare systems, public management and administration research is a relevant basis for contributions. Mecosan aims at providing a forum for sharing the results of rigorous and relevant research, case studies and practical experiences in healthcare so that managerial practices can be influenced and improved. The target audience includes academics, researchers, consultants and practitioners. Contributions from different academic disciplines and professional experiences on managerial themes in the field of healthcare organizations are welcome. Authors can submit conceptual articles, original empirical works, theoretical overviews or reviews, or articles on good practices. All submissions will be comprehensively refereed by at least two anonymous reviewers according to internationally accepted standards. Mecosan considers reviewing to be a developmental process aimed at improving the quality of individual papers rather than a mere process of selection. The journal also welcomes papers from non Italian authors written in English.
