The new selective BMC journal BMC Global and Public Health is now open for submissions. The journal will consider important advances and influential research and opinion in all areas of global and public health, and we will publish a unique set of high-impact content including Research, Systematic Reviews, Registered Reports, as well as Reviews, Comments, Forums, Perspectives and Matters Arising. Our goals are to give a voice to the communities we aim to serve, to promote health and well-being, and to advance health equity and policy making worldwide.
As the pioneer in open access publishing, BMC already has an excellent standing within the public health communities, especially owing to our largest title BMC Public Health. By launching this new selective journal, we aim to connect and support the global and public health communities around the world, which will enable us to have an even further reach and impact.
In line with BMC’s mission, BMC Global and Public Health will champion open science and immediate data sharing, supported by transparent peer review and open data policies, as well as adherence to community standards and policies. We are committed to promoting Diversity, Equity and Inclusivity, with appropriate community representation among journal stakeholders and topics covered. We are lucky to already have the support of an Editorial Board with broad and diverse expertise, and we will keep on expanding its size and scope, with a specific focus on Early Career Researchers. We have launched the journal with two guest-edited article collections that cover highly topical issues in global and public health: Stigma and mental health in infectious diseases, and Identifying people with tuberculosis and linking to care: finding the missing millions.

We look forward to working with you.
