A new section dedicated to health promotion research has been created within the journal Global Health Promotion. This new section “Doing Health Promotion Research” aims to collect original texts that bring novelty to the paradigms, approached or methods used in health promotion research. This section aims to contribute to the current debates in health promotion and to the renewal of research methods in this field.
It follows the initiative launched by Didier Jourdan (UNESCO Chair Global Health & Education) and Louise Potvin (Canada Research Chair in Community Approaches and Health Inequalities) to publish a Global Handbook of Health Promotion Research.
A call for papers has just been published for this new section.
The section is intended for researchers in the field of health promotion research, as well as for professionals who collaborate on or evaluate health promotion research (especially when applying for funds). Articles should be accessible to researchers who are not familiar with the topic under discussion.
Call for papers section “Doing Health Promotion Research”
This call is open to all individuals and groups interested in advancing health promotion research by presenting a paradigm, approach or method and discussing it in relation to the specific health promotion research challenges they address.
Contributions may be written in English, French or Spanish.
For more information on the expected proposals and the submission process, see the dedicated page on the GHP website.
