Globalization and Health is an open-access, peer-reviewed, online journal that provides an international forum for high quality original research, knowledge sharing and debate on the topic of globalization and its effects on health, both positive and negative. Globalization, namely the intensification of flows of people, goods, and services across borders, has a complex influence on health. The journal publishes material relevant to any aspect of globalization and health from a wide range of social and medical science disciplines (e.g. economics, sociology, epidemiology, demography, psychology, politics and international relations). The output of the journal is useful to a wide audience, including academics, policy-makers, health care practitioners, and public health professionals.The journal is affiliated with the London School of Economics.

Globalization and Health's articles are archived in PubMed Central, the US National Library of Medicine's full-text repository of life science literature, and also in repositories at the University of Potsdam in Germany, at INIST in France and in e-Depot, the National Library of the Netherlands' digital archive of all electronic publications. The journal is also participating in the British Library's e-journals pilot project, and plans to deposit copies of all articles with the British Library.

Content overview

Globalization and Health considers the following types of articles:

Research - dissemination of high quality original research.

Reviews - comprehensive, authoritative critical reviews of any subject within the scope of the journal.

Commentaries - short, focussed and opinionated articles on any subject within the journal's scope. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders invited by the Editorial Board.

Debate articles - present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research. Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.

Short reports - brief reports of data from original research.

Book reviews - short summaries of the strengths and weaknesses of a book. They should evaluate its overall usefulness to the intended audience.

Peer review policy

Each manuscript submitted to Globalization and Health is screened by a member of the Editorial Board. If the quality and scope are considered to be appropriate for the journal, the manuscript is sent for external peer review. The review process is double blind (the reviewers and authors will not know who each other are). The editors make the final decision about publication, based on the external reviewers' comments.

Publishing in Globalization and Health

All articles will be listed in PubMed immediately upon acceptance (after peer review), and will be covered by PubMed Central and Scopus.

Articles in Globalization and Health should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal. However, because articles in this journal are not printed, they do not have page numbers. Instead, they have a unique article number.

The following citation:

Global Health 2004, 2:1

refers to article 1 from volume 2 of the journal.

As an online journal, Globalization and Health does not have issue numbers. Each volume corresponds to a calendar year.
