Global Health: Science and Practice Journal Releases March 2016 Issue
In general, across the developing world, wealthier women are more likely than poorer women to use long-acting and permanent methods (LAPM) of contraception than short-acting methods, according to new research published in Global Health: Science and Practice. The findings are based on analysis of Demographic and Health Survey data from 30 low- and middle-income countries. Learn more about the association between wealth and LAPM use in the March issue of GHSP.
As always the journal features important contributions to many different fields in global health, adding the "practice" perspective to scientific research. Highlights from this month include articles covering a range of global health topics on family planning and immunization integration, expanding access to the IUD, preventing cervical cancer through a single-visit approach, and more.
Global Health: Science and Practice is a no-fee, open-access, peer-reviewed, online journal. GHSP aims to improve health practice, especially in low- and middle-income countries, by publishing current research and program experiences. GHSP is currently indexed in PubMed, PubMed Central, POPLINE, and the Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC). Unlike other journals, there are no fees to submit or publish your articles in GHSP. In addition, GHSP focuses on publishing articles with practical, program-implementation experiences with details on how activities were actually conducted—the kind of implementation detail that most other journals tend to shy away from. To submit a manuscript, read the Instructions for Authors and submit your manuscripts for consideration.
