Keeping up with global health journals

On July 5, 2012, in articles, education, by Karen Grepin

I frequently get asked, and myself wonder: what are the top journals in global health? This is kind of a complicated question to answer since of course “global health” is by nature a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary field. As a result, you will frequently see really important papers being published in journals that might not obviously be home for such works. As well, due to the rise in this field over the past few years, we have actually seen the establishment of new journals that have attempted to fill gaps in this complicated academic field.

Andrew Harmer, who blogs at globalhealthpolicy.net, has compiled a list of what he believes to be the top academic journals in this space along with additional information each journal, including their impact factors. I mostly agree with this list – it covers nearly all of the journals I read regularly.

To help others keep up with this literature, the Global Health Hub, a very useful online aggregator of all that is going on in the field of global health, has also recently compiled an RSS feed that aggregates the feed from many of these journals. By subscribing to the feed, you can then follow along and keep up to date with these relevant journals.

Many top journals also now have Twitter accounts, so I also tend to follow many of these accounts, including the Lancet, Health Affairs, Global Health Governance, and others. I find it is also a useful way to keep up with the articles as well as other important pieces of information, such as calls for papers.
