Journal of Global Health is a peer-reviewed journal published by the International Society of Global Health, a non-for-profit organisation registered in the UK. We publish editorials, news, viewpoints, original research and review articles in two issues per year. Our mission is to serve the community of researchers, funding agencies, international organizations, policy-makers and other stakeholders in the field of international health.
Although research in global health issues clearly requires a remarkable effort from researchers, and can have a very large translational impact on society, policies and decision-making, many journals are reluctant to publish work from local contexts. The lack of general relevance or interest, typically small sample sizes and low likelihood that the work would be cited by many other scientists are the likely explanations for this rather unfortunate situation. This led us to launch the Journal of Global Health Reports – to embrace local research on difficult questions and issues in global health.
In addition to regular articles and viewpoints, Journal of Global Health publishes Research Themes which can run throughout several issues. Once all the articles are published under one accepted Research Theme, we offer to compile them into an edited book with a unique ISBN identifier. We publish all such books within the JoGH collections library. They contain not only the articles published within a Research Theme, but also further materials such as editorials, reviews and supplementary materials. Such books can be used to support teaching, e.g. postgraduate classes or Massive Open Online Courses. They can also be used as evidence of dissemination activities from recently completed research grants.
