Resources for Health this week launched its own journal blog. Items already posted
include details of a forthcoming special issue, the
first Global Forum on Human
Resources for Health (due to be held early in 2008), and a request for
feedback on some future developments for the journal. In launching the blog, the Editors of Human Resources for
Health hope to be able to provide a forum for further comment and
discussion of items relevant to the journal and its field.
Human Resources for Health is overseen by the
Editor-in-Chief, Mario Dal Poz (World Health Organization), and was launched
with BioMed Central in 2003. The
journal covers all aspects of planning, producing and managing the health
workforce – all those who provide health services worldwide.
Another public health blog which may be of interest is Effect Measure, edited by the pseudonymous “Revere”, also an open access journal editor and advocate.
