Journal History

The initiative to establish this journal began in 2015 by the Faculty of Vocational Studies under the initial name 'Jurnal Kesehatan Vokasi'. However, this attempt was eventually halted due to various challenges. In 2016, the initiative resumed with a new team responsible for reviewing and analysing the journal's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT analysis). Eventually, the name was changed from 'Jurnal Kesehatan Vokasi' to 'Journal of Vocational Health Studies' to enhance international recognition. This change was necessary to achieve the goal of national accreditation by the Indonesian Ministry of Higher Education in 2020 and indexing by Scopus in 2022."
