Research Themes in Global Health

Disseminating knowledge on research themes in global health

In addition to regular articles and viewpoints, Journal of Global Health publishes Research Themes which can run throughout several issues. Once all the articles are published under one accepted Research Theme, we offer to compile them into an edited book with a unique ISBN identifier. We publish all such books within the JoGH collections library. They contain not only the articles published within a Research Theme, but also further materials such as editorials, reviews and supplementary materials. Such books can be used to support teaching, e.g. postgraduate classes or Massive Open Online Courses. They can also be used as evidence of dissemination activities from recently completed research grants.
