Open Access Health & Society Research
Welcome to Taylor & Francis Open Access Health & Society Research
We've created this page to provide authors and researchers with quick access to high-quality, fully open content.
Taylor & Francis hopes that by equipping health researchers with relevant materials, discoveries in health and the important role societies play in it, will yield a deeper understanding of how we can improve health around the world.
Click on the links below to explore our range of open access journals in Health & Society and the different specialties that collectively comprise this portfolio.
International Journal of Qualitative Studies on Health and Well-being
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 1.424
QHW aims to provide a forum for the exchange of data, knowledge, theoretical framework and methods on health and well-being, aiming to further the development and understanding of qualitative research by using rigorous qualitative methodology of significance for issues related to human health and well-being.
QHW publishes research articles within a variety of qualitative research approaches, qualitatively-driven mixed-method designs, methodological development, meta-analyses, and articles focusing on theoretical and philosophical issues related to qualitative research and health and well-being.
International Journal of Circumpolar Health
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 1.180
The International Journal of Circumpolar Health is published by Taylor & Francis on behalf of the Circumpolar Health Research Network [CircHNet].
The journal follows the tradition initiated by its predecessor, Arctic Medical Research, and specializes in circumpolar health. It provides a forum for many disciplines, including the biomedical sciences, social sciences and humanities as they relate to human health in high latitude environments. The journal has a particular interest in the health of indigenous peoples. It is a vehicle for dissemination and exchange of knowledge among researchers, policy makers, practitioners and those they serve.
Health Systems & Reform
An open access journal
Aging, chronic diseases, persistent infectious diseases, and new healthcare technologies are among mounting challenges that require innovative and cost-effective approaches to healthcare delivery and reform. On the other hand, there is no international journal that is dedicated to catalyzing cross-national knowledge transfer and translation in health systems and reform. HS&R will fill this gap.
Health Systems & Reform (HS&R) is the first peer-reviewed, open access journal that is dedicated to bridging research, theory and analysis with knowledge and experience in health systems and reform, and aims at becoming a global platform for sharing positive and normative lessons in this field. Most health systems around the world are at various stages of reform cycles.
Journal of Market Access & Health Policy
An open access journal
The Journal of Market Access & Health Policy is the official journal of the Market Access Society. JMAHP aims to link all components that impact “market access” and provide a convergent and broader perspective in a single, specialized journal. This publication serves as a reference desk for industry, regulators and academics who, due to the open access nature of the journal, have free and immediate access to innovative research articles, discussion papers for best practices and valuable guidelines.
JMAHP approaches “market access” as a multidisciplinary field spanning not only economic but also technical, scientific, sociological, psychological and policy perspectives. The journal welcomes reviews, original research, perspectives and editorials on health economics and outcomes research, policy and the market-access industry.
Global Health Action
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 1.817
Global Health Action is a journal based at the Department of Epidemiology and Global Health at Umeå University in Sweden. Our vision is to be a leading journal in the global health field, narrowing health information gaps and contributing the implementation of policies and actions that lead to improved global health.
The widening gap between the winners and losers of globalization presents major public health challenges. To meet these challenges, it is crucial to generate new knowledge and evidence in the field and in settings where the evidence is lacking, as well as to bridge the gaps between existing knowledge and implementation of relevant findings. Manuscripts suggesting strategies for practical interventions and research implementations where none already exist are specifically welcomed. Further, the journal encourages articles from low- and middle-income countries, while also welcoming articles originated from South-South and South-North collaborations.
Child and Adolescent Obesity
An open access journal
CHAO aims to advance the clinical understanding of science in childhood obesity through clinical reviews and editorials. Our objectives are to: increase mutual understanding between scientists and policymakers through clinical papers in policy-making, spread scientific discoveries through original papers, short communications, systematic and pragmatic reviews, support scientific dialogue by letters to the editor, build a bridge between professionals and overweight children as well as their relatives through short communications and support the scientific investigation of including psychological based treatment into clinical practice
Child and adolescent obesity is a growing societal and public health problem that needs more attention. CHAO provides a platform for different stakeholders - clinicians, policymakers, nurses, physiotherapists, dietitians and the public - to effectively communicate about ways to combat obesity in children and adolescents.
Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters
An open access journal | 2018 Impact Factor 2.119
Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters promotes sexual and reproductive health and rights globally. The SRHM journal, formerly Reproductive Health Matters (RHM), is a peer-reviewed, international publication that explores emerging, neglected and marginalized topics and themes across the field of sexual and reproductive health and rights.
SRHM publishes work that engages with fundamental dilemmas and debates in SRHR, highlighting multiple perspectives, acknowledging differences and searching for new forms of consensus. SRHM strongly encourages research that explores experiences, values, information and issues from the point of view of those whose lives are affected.
