Emerging Themes in Epidemiology
Published/Hosted by BioMed Central.
Emerging Themes in Epidemiology is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal that aims to promote debate and discussion on practical and theoretical aspects of epidemiology. Combining statistical approaches with an understanding of the biology of disease, epidemiologists seek to elucidate the social, environmental and host factors related to adverse health outcomes. Although research findings from epidemiologic studies abound in traditional public health journals, little publication space is devoted to discussion of the practical and theoretical concepts that underpin them. Because of its immediate impact on public health, an openly accessible forum is needed in the field of epidemiology to foster such discussion. Emerging Themes in Epidemiology welcomes submissions from all public health professionals on any subject related to epidemiology. The journal will consider manuscripts that comment critically on epidemiologic practice - in general or within a specific speciality - and present new concepts or theoretical frameworks. This includes articles from other fields but which have implications for the conduct of epidemiologic research.
