Once production of your article has started, you can track the status of your article via Track Your Accepted Article. Help expand a public dataset of research that support the SDGs. In general, we will prioritise papers that evaluate or inform the development of interventions and policies In general, we will prioritise papers that evaluate or inform the development of interventions and policies to improve population health, or that make a genuinely original contribution, rather than being basic descriptive studies.
The journal aims to cover transport and health issues in all countries; in general, studies should have a context, or lessons, that can be transferred to other locations.
Interactions between transport and health include, for instance:. The readership is international and multi-disciplinary; articles need to be understood by intelligent readers from a broad range of specialties and places. We are particularly keen to encourage submissions that are cross-disciplinary or inter-disciplinary.
The journal has three particular aims:. We seek papers that advance our knowledge or use innovative designs and analyses that expand and contribute significantly to an already established literature.
There is a well-established connection between active travel, primarily walking and cycling, and population health. We are looking for innovative designs and analyses that expand and contribute significantly to an already established literature. There are many journals that focus on transport crashes and injuries, any unintentional injuries, and engineering; we do not wish to duplicate these.
We are therefore restricting the scope of our journal to those that are more public health-focused, are more cross-disciplinary, and do not have an engineering or laboratory basis. In general, we will not consider manuscripts where numbers are used rather than rates when exploring associations with danger or safety, whether as a cross-sectional association or in longitudinal studies examining change.
The fact that more people are injured where, or when, more people travel is not very enlightening. We require all authors to avoid the word 'accident' except where it is in the reference of a document they are citing.
Although it means 'unintentional', it is often interpreted as meaning 'unavoidable'. It is not always clear which is meant. See BMJ ; for a longer explanation. Your manuscript is definitely not suitable for the Journal of Transport and Health if it does not focus on transport and health. In partnership with the communities we serve; we redouble our deep commitment to inclusion and diversity within our editorial, author and reviewer networks.
Authors submitting their research article to this journal are encouraged to deposit research data in a relevant data repository and cite and link to this dataset in their article. If this is not possible, authors are encouraged to make a statement explaining why research data cannot be shared. There are several ways you can share your data when you publish with Elsevier, which help you get credit for your work and make your data accessible and discoverable for your peers.

Interactions between transport and health include, for instance: the impacts on public health and inequalities of: active modes of transport; noise and air pollution generated by transport; road travel injuries see below ; community severance; road danger and its reduction see below : actual safety and security hazards associated with transport; perceptions of danger and factors affecting these; factors affecting transport choices: urban form; location and accessibility of health and other facilities; age, gender, health and disability; socio-economic inequalities; rurality; leisure travel; synergies between sustainability and health impacts of transport; economic and health impact assessments methodological advances, including considerations of complex systems; and policies and interventions that promote or discourage healthy and sustainable transport modes, transport systems and communities see below.
The journal has three particular aims: to promote dialogue and collaboration between the two research communities it serves; to improve the methods and the quality and appropriate use of data to better understand the relationships between transport and health; and to encourage transfer of research into practice.
Active Travel There is a well-established connection between active travel, primarily walking and cycling, and population health.
We encourage submission of papers that evaluate or inform the development of interventions and policies to improve population health or that make a genuinely original contribution, rather than being basic, descriptive studies, even if from countries without previous published papers on the topic. In general, we will no longer consider cross-sectional analyses of children's school travel, even if yours is the first such study in a particular location.
Studies producing substantial, transferable new information may be considered. Road travel injuries fatal and non-fatal There are many journals that focus on transport crashes and injuries, any unintentional injuries, and engineering; we do not wish to duplicate these.
In countries without suitable travel-related denominator data distances travelled, time spent travelling, or number of trips , population-based denominators will be accepted. For example, when describing the proportion of casualties by age or by travel mode, it is important to compare those with the proportions in the general population. Dannenberg Daniel A.

Health Science is one of the most emerging fields in the present scenario. The level of health science involvement in the fields of scientific research has reached to that extend; the health safety of any developing as well as developed nation can be evaluated through the level of advancement of health Science of the particular nation. Health Science is a multidisciplinary field that aims to disseminate information, scholarship experience in education, practice and investigation between health status and quality of care for individuals, families and communities. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Health Science Journal or relevant experts from other universities or institutes. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the Online Manuscript Submission. Current technology allows health care professionals to easily diagnose disease and to differentiate them from related diseases.

The reviewers and editor kept constant communication throughout the whole process and gave valuable feedback on my work. I would definitely recommend them as they are very organized, professional and fast! Their interactions were very professional as well as diligent. I appreciated their quick response and constructive criticism regarding the submitted material. For me it was a long process due to a heavy workload, but they remained kind, patient and very helpful and I am pleased to see the final result.
BMC Public Health is excited to launch a new collection which aims to bring together research on the health impacts of household and ambient air pollution and attributed deaths. For more information on the collection and Guest Editors read here. Click here to complete the Application Form. If you have an idea for a future collection, let us know. A study published in BMC Public Health finds that adiposity now accounts for more deaths in England and Scotland than smoking among middle- and old-age people. The researchers highlight the need to focus efforts on government policies and legislation to create an environment that can facilitate weight management, as well as interventions to support individuals.
