Call for UC students to publish commentaries and reviews in Advances in Global Health

Advances in Global Health is a peer-reviewed, open-access research journal published by UC Press that is focused on advancing health equity throughout the world and is committed to decolonizing and democratizing global health. This entails purposefully giving prominence to knowledge and knowledge production from low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The core focus of Advances in Global Health are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, a set of 17 interconnected goals with 169 targets that the 191 UN member nations have agreed to achieve by 2030. The SDGs were originally published in 2015 on the 70th anniversary of the UN, to set out a “supremely ambitious and transformational vision.... a world free of poverty, hunger, disease and want, where all life can thrive.” 

Advances in Global Health centers health as its focus and promotes an interdisciplinary approach to studying the bi-directional relationship between other key sectors, e.g. poverty (SDG 1), food security (SDG 2), gender equality (SDG 5) and planetary health (SDG 13-15) on health outcomes (SDG 3).

The journal is looking for University of California students to publish* the following types of manuscripts:

  • Opinion/Perspectives—explanatory essays, commentaries, treatises, and opinion papers. Opinion and perspective pieces should generally not exceed 1,000 words. Opinion and perspective pieces are not peer-reviewed.
  • Reviews & Syntheses—written to bring together and summarize the results/conclusions from multiple original research articles/studies. These often identify and analyze key gaps in the existing literature and are peer-reviewed. Reviews and synthesis should also not exceed about 5,000 words.
  • Letters and short reports—letters are short articles that present significant discoveries, methods, and resources. Letters and short reports are peer-reviewed and should not exceed 2,000 words.

For inquiries, please contact Dr. Craig Cohen, Editor-in-Chief at craig...@ucsf.edu    

*Publication fees are currently waived for all faculty, staff, and students of the University of California system who are corresponding authors
