Cities & Health
Cities & Health has been established to support human and planetary health by sharing the latest international research and practice for urban health and health equity. Our mission is to provide practitioners, researchers and communities with a platform to share, discuss problems to shape solutions from a spatial planning, urban design and physical city governance perspective.
Sharing knowledge in new ways
We also wish to draw the attention of built environment professionals, researchers, policy-makers, politicians and communities who are working in this field to a new journal section. This is called ‘Reflections from research, practice and design’. We want to hear reflections on your work; your experiences and the lessons this has taught you that you wish to pass on to others.
For fuller information on all types of contributions, please see the Instructions for Authors section on the journal’s website. Work should be submitted directly on-line. If you have any queries about how Cities & Health might handle a proposed submission please contact Marcus Grant, Editor-in-Chief: MarcusxGrant@CitiesHealth.World with an outline.
Once accepted all articles are published on-line first.
Print editions are currently published twice a year.
We welcome a wide range of article types including image and design based work and case studies from cities. All papers undergo peer review. Supportive reviewing is encouraged, this is usually double blind, but can be open by request.
Details of the Editorial Board and editorial advisors can be found on the journal website together with all articles to date.
