Public Health, understood as the science and art of preventing disease, promoting health, and prolonging life through the collective efforts of society, has obvious ethical and legal implications at its root and development.

  • Vaccines
  • Health promotion
  • Disease Screening Program
  • Harm Reduction Policies
  • Health Policies
  • Health Economics
  • And related topics

The journal will accept only original papers written in Spanish, Catalan, French, English, Portuguese or Italian, with a maximum length of 6,000 words, including references, bibliography, tables and graphics. The file must be sent in MS Word format, letter Cambria or Arial 12, double-spaced. Originals must be sent through this link. Original articles will be peer-reviewed and those that pass the selection process will be accepted for publication.

  • Deadline for submissions: 15 October 2018
