Call for Papers: Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health
The Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health (JEGH) plans to impact global epidemiology and international health with peer-reviewed articles focused on innovative scholarship and strategies to advance global health policy. The journal will take special interest in publishing rigorous assessments of policies where these have been implemented based on epidemiological and public health research. At Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health we believe epidemiology and public health are closely intertwined, both scientifically, and from a health policy vantage: advances in one area exert positive consequences on the other.
The journal benefits from a diverse, multidisciplinary, experienced and unusually international editorial board that will facilitate the publication of articles and perspectives reflecting a global view of public health medicine and epidemiology. We also seek to emphasize our focus on supporting the academic, clinical and practical needs of public health practitioners in the field.
The journal seeks to improve regional and global health by informing efforts to reduce the risk of communicable and non-communicable diseases. We are particularly interested in the links between evolving epidemiologic advances and the implementation of health policy initiatives, eventually in publishing efficacy assessments, including the assessment of unintended consequences.
As global health medicine meets unprecedented problems - the H1N1 pandemic being a recent example - imaginative approaches will be needed to influence health policy, foreign policy and even immigration policy. The resulting need for multidisciplinary research is not well served by the current body of academic publications and this journal seeks to fill this important gap.
The Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health is an interdisciplinary journal that welcomes reviews, original papers, laboratory, epidemiological or clinical, as well as perspectives and commentaries from all aspects of communicable and non-communicable diseases, in particular those identified as priorities by the World Health Assembly. JEGH will not accept case reports and submissions purely focused on basic (bench) science.
