With the publication of three Thematic Series and
with submissions to the journal up by more than a third compared to 2010, 2011
proved to be a great year for Globalization
and Health. The journal is set to continue to move with momentum in
2012, with the recent news that it will receive its first official Impact
Factor in the summer. The journal currently has an unofficial
impact factor of 2.07.
Globalization and Health, which is affiliated with the London School of Economics,
publishes high quality research on globalization and its effects on health, on
such diverse topics as the politics of the tobacco industry and access to
essential medicines. This year, co-Editors-in-Chief Emma Pitchforth and Greg
Martin are looking forward to publication of a new Thematic Series entitled:
‘Climate Change and Global Health: Implications for Human Health and Health
Systems’. This highly topical series aims to explore the resilience and
flexibility of our health systems in the face of possible large-scale disasters
linked to climate change.
Globalization and Health welcomes a range of publications, including
original research, commentaries, evidence reviews, debate articles and book
reviews. To submit your manuscript to Globalization and Health, please click here.
