About the Journal
The Journal of Critical Public Health (JCPH) is a fully peer-reviewed scholarly journal that publishes empirical research and debate. We consider submissions from any discipline or perspective, so long as authors engage critically with the theory, practice or implications of public health. We recognise that both 'public health' and 'critical scholarship' are contested concepts. We are particularly interested in submissions which: take power seriously; provide innovative perspectives; have implications for policy and practice; and/or question taken-for-granted concepts.
The journal is published on behalf of the international Critical Public Health Network.
This is the inaugural issue of Journal of Critical Public Health (JCPH). As described here, JCPH was created in July 2023 to coincide with the resignation by members of the Editorial Board of Critical Public Health from its corporate owners and publishers, to ensure continuity for the community of authors and readers.
Please note that DOIs are assigned to articles upon publication but they are not yet registered, pending our application for an ISSN (in progress).
