Call for papers: ongoing thematic series in Globalization and Health
Cross border infectious disease threats: governance and preparedness
This collection seeks to examine the evolving nature of infectious disease threats and the current state of preparedness, both in terms of national response capacities and in terms of global governance structures and process. The collection is also interested in papers that examine the methods and tools being used to measure public health emergency preparedness.
This collection aims to create a singular venue for readers interested in how trade and investment treaties are reshaping health environments, and the politics and economics that shape the treaties themselves. We are particularly interested in papers that examine how our new regimes of economic liberalization create some benefit, but portend new risks, for global public health.
In recent years the world has seen a rapid expansion in the development and use of digital technologies. This cross-journal collection is interested in manuscripts that address digital (e-health) interventions and their applications in health care and public health. We are also interested in manuscripts that address the added value of e-health interventions with regard to usual care.
This cross-journal collection aims to bring together a selection of the latest research and developments surrounding global alcohol and tobacco policy. We are particularly interested in papers that focus on global governance of alcohol and tobacco and global influences on the diffusion of alcohol and tobacco commodities.
Contribution of climate change to the spread of infectious diseases
This cross-journal collection aims to bring together research outlining those diseases that are likely to spread across borders due to the effects of climate change. We are particularly interested in papers that focus on the impact of policy implementation or interventions designed to contain the spread infectious disease, and studies that could inform future global policy or practical solutions.
Environmental justice is the fair treatment and meaningful involvement of all people in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental regulations, and policies. This collection calls for papers that shed light on the contribution that evidence-based research can give to develop better practices and policies towards stronger environmental justice.
Innovation in health systems in low- and middle-income countries
This collection seeks to examine the factors that enable and constrain the emergence and diffusion of health system innovations in low- and middle-income countries. We are particularly interested in papers that bring alternative perspectives to this collection, based on diverse local contexts and different types of innovation. Submissions to this collection should explore the implications in a global context.
Health partnerships: an effective response to the global health agenda
This collection looks at the concept of international twinning relationships and seeks to engage critically with their experiences; assessing the choices, influences, and relationships that determine their success, or otherwise, in strengthening human resources for health, and ultimately improving health services globally.
