New Content ItemAt BMC, we strive to be inclusive and provide equal opportunities to authors based in low- and middle-income countries who might face challenges in publishing their work.

Aims and scope

BMC Public Health is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the epidemiology of disease and the understanding of all aspects of public health. The journal has a special focus on the social determinants of health, the environmental, behavioral, and occupational correlates of health and disease, and the impact of health policies, practices and interventions on the community. BMC Public Health does not publish clinical research: this should be submitted to the relevant BMC Series medical journal.

The journal welcomes submissions in over 20 broad areas of public health research
