The Canadian Journal of Public Health (CJPH) is pleased to announce a Call for Abstracts for a special section on qualitative research and population and public health that will be published in a fall 2018 issue of the journal.
CJPH publishes original research and scholarly articles from a range of methodological, theoretical, disciplinary and interdisciplinary perspectives that are relevant to population and public health.
In 2017, the CJPH affirmed that qualitative research published in the journal will make high-quality, theoretically-informed, and methodologically-rigorous contributions to knowledge about population and public health issues.
To help launch this new commitment, we invite the submission of abstracts of qualitative research that is engaged with contemporary developments in social theory and qualitative research methodology and that contributes to critical, informed public health knowledge, thinking and practice. We welcome abstracts that describe research based on various analytic strategies and forms of data and that explore a range of issues relevant to population and public health.
The special section will comprise an introductory article followed by up to 4 original peer-reviewed qualitative research articles that exemplify the journal’s commitment to publishing critical, theoretically-informed qualitative research on population and public health issues.
