Global Public Health is converting to Open Access from its 2023 volume.
As of 17 May 2023, Global Public Health (GPH) will be converting to an Open Access publishing model.
Launched in 2006, GPH offers a leading venue for publication of work on global health issues from the perspectives of public health and health-related social sciences, with special emphasis on politics and policy analysis relevant to research, intervention and practice.
The efforts of the Editor-in-Chief, Senior Editors, Associate Editors, Editorial Board members, and GPH’s wider community of authors, readers and reviewers, has led to GPH’s success in publishing traditional research articles alongside commentaries, review articles, research reports and a regular stream of special issues offering innovative perspectives on the social and political determinants of health and the global dimensions of public health challenges.
Listening to the considerations of GPH readers and contributors has given us the confidence that GPH will continue to thrive as an Open Access title with the benefits that increased readership and visibility will inevitably bring.
This conversion to Open Access ensures that the research published in GPH will be disseminated internationally with no barriers to access. This, combined with the market-leading web platform provided by Taylor & Francis, and our innovative communications strategies, will mean that all authors who chose to publish in GPH will reach the widest possible audience.
As part of this transition, all manuscripts received after 17 May 2022 will proceed through GPH’s new Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after this date will, if their article is accepted, be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by an author’s funder or institution.
Contribute to Global Public Health
Global Public Health is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts on:
The role of significant social factors, especially social inequalities as determinants of health
Politics and policy, both as shaping health outcomes and as important components of health systems
Ways in which any specific case study raises issues about global processes or systems
There is a comprehensive description of the journal scope as well as a clear set of instructions for authors in the journal website.
Interested authors should visit the Taylor & Francis Open Access Members and Open Access Agreements pages in case they are based at an institution that may have funds available to authors wishing to publish in Global Public Health. Interested readers may also want to consider signing up to receive latest article alerts to keep up-to-date with the latest research published in the journal.
We look forward to receiving your submissions and hope you join us to embrace Global Public Health’s Open Access future.
