American Journal of Public Health Call for Papers - Deadline January 2013

October 19, 2012

The American Journal of Public Health intends to publish a theme issue on homelessness in 2013 and is calling for papers from researchers and all interested authors by January 1, 2013. Papers are invited on the following areas: epidemiology of homelessness and housing instability, homelessness and health disparities, development or evaluation of effective interventions, impact of service delivery, characteristics and needs of homeless veterans, and emerging risk populations or characteristics. We also invite original research papers featuring the identification and treatment of medical and or mental health disorders associated with homelessness, contribution of social context, ecological analysis of population data, and evaluation of promising prevention strategies.

All interested authors are invited to consider different categories of manuscripts as indicated on the AJPH website. All manuscripts will undergo the peer review process by the AJPH editors (guest editors Vincent Kane and Dr. Dennis Culhane) and peer referees as defined by AJPH policy. Manuscripts will be due to the Journal by January 1, 2013, and can be submitted at http:///ajph.edmgr.com. For more information on this supplement, please contact the guest editors: vincent.kane@va.gov or culhane@upenn.edu.
