Call for Papers for a Supplemental Issue of Public Health Reports: Routine HIV Screening in Clinical Settings
Deadline for submission: September 15, 2014
The anticipated publication date for this Supplemental Issue is September/October 2015.
Public Health Reports (PHR) is inviting papers for a Supplemental Issue on the implementation of routine HIV screening in clinical settings in the United States. The Guest Editor for this Supplemental Issue will be Dr. Patrick Sullivan at the Emory University Rollins School of Public Health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommend that HIV screening be a routine practice in clinical settings. The Guest Editors are interested in manuscripts that describe experiences implementing routine HIV screening in clinical settings, especially those that directly address reaching scale in making HIV screening a routine practice in these settings. Manuscripts that describe routine HIV screening in all clinical settings are welcome, and the Guest Editors are particularly interested in reports from community health centers.
Ideally, this Supplemental Issue will include manuscripts that provide evidence about the outcomes of implementing different approaches to routine HIV screening in these settings. Dr. Sullivan will guide the manuscript selection.
Manuscript requirements:Articles in PHR are typically 2,500–3,000 words in length. Longer manuscripts, when appropriate, will be considered. All manuscripts reviewed and approved by the Guest Editor and the PHR Editorial Committee will be sent for external peer review.
Manuscript submission: Manuscripts should be sent to email@example.com
