Aims and scope

The Journal of Health Research (J Health Res) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal published by the College of Public Health Sciences, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand.

J Health Res is dedicated to publishing valid research from different areas of public health, such as determinants of illness, benefits of health-related interventions, quality of life, health systems and services development, and environmental health. We especially welcome manuscripts focusing mainly, but not limited to, Asian themes. e.g., culture-based public health interventions, diseases that impose heavy burdens in populations, and traditional medicine. A valid and accepted scientific methodology must be applied.

J Health Res publishes 6 issues per annum; February, April, June, August, October, and December. From time to time, J Health Res also publishes supplements of material such as conference proceedings.

This journal is abstracted and indexed by:

  1. Thai-Journal Citation Index Centre (TCI)
  2. ASEAN Citation Index (ACI)
  3. Journal of Health Research has now been accepted for inclusion in the Scopus database.
    We owe special thanks to the TCI-TRF-SCOPUS collaboration project for their guidance in the process.

Peer review

All manuscripts will be reviewed for potential publication with the understanding that they are original contributions, have not been published previously and are not under simultaneous consideration for publication elsewhere. All authors must comply with this policy.
All submitted manuscripts, for both the regular bimonthly issues and supplements, are subject to review by the editor and a panel of at least two independent peer-reviewers whose names are not normally disclosed to authors, and vice-versa (double-blind peer review policy).

The comments and suggestions acceptance/rejection/revisions to manuscript) received from reviewers will be conveyed to the corresponding author. Authors are generally requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process may be repeated until reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript. Decisions regarding publication are based on scientific importance and interest, relevance, soundness of methodology, and adherence to scientific and ethical standards.
