The Briefs provides concise, yet substantial overviews of critical dilemmas affecting population health today. This series goes beyond the traditional bioethical conundrums discussed by public health practitioners (i.e. scarce resource allocation, emergency preparedness, mandatory disease reporting and vaccinations, etc.), and dives into debate-stimulating global population health topics such as: the ethics of geoengineering and intentionally intervening in the earth’s atmosphere to circumvent the dramatic effects of climate change; global organ transplant tourism and human organ trafficking, the ethics of community based participatory research in developing nations and on vulnerable populations; the ethics of public health media campaigns; and the global crisis of antibiotic resistance. Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, the series is aimed at students in MPH programs as well as public health professionals in continuing education courses. Possible volumes in the series may consist of in-depth case studies, supplementary textbooks, continuing education textbooks, and professional how-to guides. Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this series. Briefs are published as part of Springer’s eBook collection, with millions of users worldwide. In addition, Briefs are available for individual print and electronic purchase. Briefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, easy-to-use manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules. We aim for publication 8-12 weeks after acceptance.
