Young Researcher Editorials

Young researcher editorials (YREs) are editorials on topical discussions in public health written by PhD students from across the world (until 12 months after completion of the PhD). YREs convey a single, clear message. They have a short and catchy title, are 800 words long, and have up to ten (maximum) references. Doctoral students of Swiss School of Public Health will review YREs. After acceptance, all YREs receive free professional copyediting funded by the Swiss School of Public Health. 

- Raise novel issues in public health
- Discuss recent publications or themes addressed in IJPH or elsewhere
- Debate public health science and related policies
- Promote discussions about science careers in public health and related challenges
- Place public health challenges in a broader context
- Address matters of global or multi-regional relevance

YRE is a capacity-building project for PhD students, offered by the Swiss School of Public Health+.
