Health and Human Rights: An International Journal, published by the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at the Harvard School of Public Health, welcomes submissions on a rolling basis. New issues are published in June and December, and selected papers are available prior to issue release.
Original articles (original research, commentary, and analyses) suitable for scholarly peer review are invited for our “Research” section (3,500–7,000 words). In addition to research papers, we seek manuscripts for our “Review” section (500–7,000 words) that emerge from and reflect on practical efforts for the realization of social and economic rights. The form and style of these pieces is flexible, but they should be of genuine relevance to people engaged in related work. Like all other submissions, papers for this section will be peer reviewed.
Health and Human Rights welcomes articles that explore the centrality of the right to health in all social, economic, cultural and environmental contexts. We are interested particularly in the themes of (1) climate change and the right to health; (2) health rights and effectiveness of international treaty law; (3) interdisciplinary explorations of health and human rights; (4) rights-informed innovations in health program design; (5) health and human rights as “well-being.” The editors also invite short letters, brief research or fieldwork summaries, and short opinion or perspective essays (up to 2,500 words) for publication as “Letters to the Editor.” The editors also invite book reviews (up to 1,000 words) and posts (up to 700 words) for the HHR blog at: http://www.hhropenforum.org
