Publications in high quality journals often serve to indicate research productivity. However, many top-rated journals infrequently publish cross-disciplinary topics such as healthcare financial management (HFM). So HFM researchers find it challenging to demonstrate the quality of their work. Journals open to publishing HFM articles are distributed across multiple disciplines. Each field has its own journal rankings typically focused on their primary subject area, rather than subdisciplines. Starting with prior literature, we form a broad-based journal list and solicit preliminary input from editors, associated editors, reviewers, and authors. We then solicit confirmatory ranking input from independent researchers in a holdout sample.
