The official journal of the Public Health Association of Australia, The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health is concerned with public health issues.
The research reported includes formal epidemiological inquiries into the correlates and causes of diseases and health-related behaviour, analyses of public policy affecting health and disease, and detailed studies of the cultures and social structures within which health and illness exist.
This open access journal has a major focus on Australia and New Zealand but articles from other countries are accepted provided that the implications for Australia and New Zealand are addressed. Authors from Australia and New Zealand are encouraged to locate their papers in the international literature. The Journal is multidisciplinary and aims to publish methodologically sound research from any of the academic disciplines that constitute public health. Articles on research methods and policy development are welcomed.
