The International Journal of Public Health publishes scientific articles relevant to global public health, from different countries and cultures, and assembles them into issues that raise awareness and understanding of public health problems and solutions. The Journal welcomes submissions of original research, critical and relevant reviews, methodological papers, and manuscripts that emphasize theoretical content. IJPH sometimes publishes commentaries and opinions. Special issues highlight key areas of current research. The Editorial Board's mission is to provide a thoughtful forum for contemporary issues and challenges in global public health research and practice.

Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published online first within 22 days!

The International Journal of Public Health is the journal of the Swiss School of Public Health (please visit: http://ssphplus.ch/).
