Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health

Aims & Scope

The Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health aims to impact global epidemiology and international health with articles focused on innovative scholarship and strategies to advance global health policy. The journal seeks to improve regional and global health by informing efforts to reduce the risk of communicable and non-communicable diseases and takes special interest in publishing rigorous assessments of policies which have been implemented based on epidemiological and public health research. At the Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health we believe that epidemiology and public health are closely intertwined, both scientifically and from a health policy perspective: advances in one area exert positive consequences on the other. We are particularly interested in the links between evolving epidemiologic advances and the implementation of health policy initiatives, and eventually in publishing efficacy assessments, including the assessment of unintended consequences.

The Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health benefits from a diverse, multidisciplinary, experienced and international Editorial Board that will facilitate the publication of articles and perspectives reflecting a global view of public health medicine and epidemiology. The journal also aims to focus on supporting the academic, clinical and practical needs of public health practitioners in the field. 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 literature and the journal seeks to fill this important gap.

The Journal of Epidemiology and Global Health is an interdisciplinary journal that welcomes original studies (laboratory, epidemiological or clinical), reviews, perspectives and commentaries from all aspects of communicable and non-communicable diseases, in particular those identified as priorities by the World Health Assembly. The journal does not accept case reports and submissions purely focused on basic (bench) science.
