BMC Public Health is committed to playing a role in advancing progress towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by supporting researchers in disseminating their related work and showcasing this to assist policy-makers, governments and humanitarian organizations in making research-backed decisions to advance the international well-being agenda.
At 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. Follow us here for guidance on submitting your research to the BMC Series and get in touch with feedback on what else we can do to help move to a more equitable publishing system.
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
Take a look at papers published in BMC Public Health that have received national and international press coverage.
