Globalization and Health: Open Access Peer-Reviewed Online Journal Invites Submissions


Globalization and Health considers the following types of articles:

Research – reports of data from original research.

Book reviews – short summaries of the strengths and weaknesses of a book.  They should evaluate its overall usefulness to the intended audience.

Commentaries – short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject within   the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders invited by the Editorial Board.

Debate articles – present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research.

Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.

Hypotheses – short articles presenting an untested original hypothesis backed solely by previously published results rather than any new evidence. They should outline significant progress in thinking that would also be testable.

Methodology articles – present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.

The article must describe a demonstrable advance on what is currently available.
