Write Ahead

One evidence-based method of increasing your writing productivity is to cultivate a daily writing habit. (See the extensive research literature of Robert Boice and his colleagues.) Writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s Vitae, Joli Jensen has identified three techniques for “taming” a large writing “beast”:

CFP: Public Health Interventions for Non-Communicable Diseases

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of Ethnicity & Health: Public Health Interventions for Non-Communicable Diseases: Process and Outcome Evaluations in Resource Poor Settings and Vulnerable Populations


The deadline for submissions is 30th June 2014.

Editors: Professor Seeromanie Harding, University of Glasgow; Professor Gbenga Ogedegbee, New York University; Professor Rainford Wilks, University of the West Indies; Dr Ursula Read, University of Glasgow

Social inequalities have either widened or stayed constant in developed countries and global inequality has increased with the rising burden from non-communicable diseases in low and middle income countries. There is increasing emphasis on tackling these inequalities with the translation of evidence-based public health interventions in community settings. Whilst there has been much theoretical development and the need to recognise complexity of the real world in implementation science, the focus of trials is often more on the complexity of the intervention than the complexity of the context. The latter is important given that behaviour change, access to health and social care, and sustainability of positive outcomes in the long term are influenced by the social, economic and political context.

Ethnicity & Health invites you to submit reviews, feasibility studies, pilot trials and full trials that target disadvantaged populations in low, middle, or high income countries; qualitative research with stakeholders and communities exploring the cultural context for a public health intervention; quantitative, qualitative, participatory or mixed method evaluations; innovative and cost effective methods of intervention delivery; prevention or treatment trials; and reports on evaluation of both process and outcome measures. Studies should interrogate the dimensions of vulnerability and their interactions with one another (e.g. gender, ethnicity, legal status).

This Special Issue is relevant to a range of disciplines and interests, including Social Sciences, Public Health, Social Epidemiology, Epidemiology, Chronic Diseases, and Community-based Trials. The publication of the Special Issue is scheduled for March 2016 and will be accompanied by a symposium to be held in collaboration with the New York University’s Global Institute of Public Health. Guidance for authors can be found on the journal’s website: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/ceth20/current#.Uv0Q8NiYZdg

Please send any queries regarding the Special Issue to Professor Seeromanie Harding at: ethnicity.and.health@gmail.com


Daily Writing

Ryan Cordell, writing for the Chronicle of Higher Education‘s ProfHacker section reminds us of the efficacy of cultivating a daily writing habit, which relies on accountability, scheduling, limits (at least 15 but no more than 30 minutes), and momentum.
