1. Mission and Scope

GHM Open is dedicated to publishing high-quality original research that contributes to advancing global health and medicine, with the goal of creating a global information network for global health, basic science as well as clinical science oriented for clinical application.

The articles cover the fields of global health, public health, and health care delivery as well as the seminal and latest research on the intersection of biomedical science and clinical practice in order to encourage cooperation and exchange among scientists and healthcare professionals in the world.

2. Manuscript Types

GHM Open publishes Original Articles, Brief Reports, Reviews, Policy Forum articles, Study Protocols, Case Reports, Communication, Editorials, Letters, and News.

3. Editorial Policies

GHM Open will perform an especially prompt review to encourage submissions of innovative work. All original research manuscripts are to be subjected to an expeditious but rigorous standard of peer review, and are to be edited by experienced copy editors to the highest standards.

Each calendar year will have one volume. The journal publishes articles as soon as the final copy-edited version is approved by the authors rather than waiting for a collection of articles for a specific issue.

We aspire to identify, attract, and publish original research that supports advances of knowledge in critical areas of global health and medicine.
