Aim:
The aim of the Hawaiʻi Journal of Health & Social Welfare is to advance knowledge about health and social welfare, with a focus on the diverse peoples and unique environments of Hawaiʻi and the Pacific region.

History:
In 1941, a journal then called The Hawaiʻi Medical Journal was founded by the Hawaiʻi Medical Association (HMA). The HMA had been incorporated in 1856 under the Hawaiian monarchy. In 2008, a separate journal called the Hawaiʻi Journal of Public Health was established by a collaborative effort between the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Office of Public Health Studies. In 2012, these two journals merged to form the Hawaiʻi Journal of Medicine & Public Health, and this journal continued to be supported by the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

In 2018, the number of partners providing financial backing for the journal expanded, and to reflect this expansion the name of the journal was changed in 2019 to the Hawaiʻi Journal of Health & Social Welfare. The lead academic partners are now the six units of the UH College of Health Sciences and Social Welfare, including the John A. Burns School of Medicine, UH Public Health, Thompson School of Social Work & Public Health, the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene, the UH Cancer Center, and the Daniel K. Inouye College of Pharmacy. Other partners are the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health and the UH Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research. The journal is fiscally managed by University Health Partners of Hawaiʻi.

The HJH&SW today:
The Hawai‘i Journal of Health & Social Welfare is a monthly peer-reviewed journal. Full-text articles are available on PubMed Central. The HJH&SW cannot be held responsible for opinions expressed in papers, discussion, communications, or advertisements. The right is reserved to reject editorial and advertising materials that are submitted. Print subscriptions are available for an annual fee of $250.Please contact the journal for information about subscriptions for locations outside of the US. ©Copyright 2021 by University Health Partners of Hawai‘i (UHP Hawai‘i).

The HJH&SW is financially supported by the academic units within the UH College of Health Sciences and Social Welfare, the UH Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Hawai‘i State Department of Health, and by advertising. However, the journal’s editorial board maintains editorial independence from these entities for the acceptance and publication of research articles. All editorial decisions regarding the selection and editing of research articles are made by the members of the journal’s editorial board. The decisions of the editorial board are not influenced by nor subject to the approval of these entities.

The aim of the columns of the HJH&SW is to provide a space for the entities that financially support the HJH&SW to diseminate information regarding their research, programs, goals, or current issues facing their respective fields. Columns are edited by the HJH&SW contributing editors, who are employees of the agencies that support the HJH&SW.

The aim of the Hawai‘i Journal Watch is to highlight recent research of the entities that finacially support the HJH&SW. The research articles that are covered in the Hawai?i Journal Watch are selected by both the HJH&SW and by researchers in the units that support the HJH&SW. The researchers whose articles are covered in the Hawai?i Journal Watch are given the opportunity to fact check the news brief.
