Central Asian Journal Of Global Health 

 

Central Asian Journal of Global Health is a biannual journal aimed at everybody working in the fields of public health and medicine. Specifically, it aims to focus on the geographic region that is oftentimes not sufficiently highlighted by existing journals, Central Asian countries. In addition to research in Central Asia, the journal will be opened to submissions from other countries. In addition to the highest-quality reviews and perspectives covering the field of health in Central Asia, each issue will include news stories and investigate hottest topics and new research practices in the field of public health.

 

 Central Asian Journal of Global Health is a fully peer-reviewed online open access journal, edited by the key developers of the Global Health Network Supercourse project (www.pitt.edu/~super1) and Center for Life Sciences at Nazarbayev University. It will provide forum for discussion for all aspects of public health, medicine, and global health in Central Asia and around the world. Central Asian Journal of Global Health is dedicated to publishing material of the highest scholarly interest, and to this end we have assembled a distinguished Editorial Advisory board. We welcome contributions from established researchers, especially those working on cutting edge questions, but we are also keen to act as a supportive environment for new investigators and with those who never published in English language journals.
