The Lancet and Women Deliver: Closing the Gap for Reproductive and Maternal Health–A Call for Papers

Posted on

Our colleagues at Women Deliver and The Lancet have recently issued a call for papers for an upcoming special issue of The Lancet that will coincide with the Women Deliver conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in May 2013.

From the call:

The Lancet is planning a special issue to coincide with the Women Deliver conference to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on May 28–30, 2013. We invite high quality submissions that address the themes of the conference and are from research groups working on reproductive, maternal, and newborn health globally. Manuscripts should be submitted via our online submission system by Dec 14, 2012. The bulk of manuscripts should follow the usual Lancet format for original research articles, but we will also consider case studies and other less research oriented submissions, as seen in the blue and green sections of the journal. Please state in the cover letter that the submission is in response to this call for papers.

More about the upcoming Women Deliver conference:

The three core themes of the 2013 conference are: investment in women, meeting women’s need for contraception, and the new architecture for the development goals and the effect on reproductive health. More broadly, the conference will focus on the links between improving maternal health and other development goals, including education, environment, gender equity, human rights, reduction in child mortality, and the eradication of HIV/AIDS.
