New Opportunities for Publishing in Public Health

Significant changes transforming the American Journal of Public Health offer authors more diverse opportunities than before for publishing. The journal’s strategic plan, completed this year, sets the stage for dramatic changes in how information will be obtained and delivered in the future. Tips on how to best format and present your work will be offered. A new department, “Field Action Reports,” seeks authors to promote programs of value to practitioners. Insights will be offered into what editors look for, accept and reject in submitted manuscripts. Finally, opportunities to educate the workforce and to reach new audiences will be presented
