Earlier this week, The Lancet launched the first call for papers for its new journal, The Lancet Global Health. This is an incredibly exciting development, and promises to further thinking on a variety of major issues, including findings central to improving maternal health around the world.
From the launch announcement:
Launching in June, 2013, The Lancet Global Health will publish high-quality original research, commentary, correspondence, and blogs on the following subjects as they pertain to low- and middle-income countries: reproductive, maternal, neonatal, and child health; adolescent health; infectious diseases, including neglected tropical diseases; non-communicable diseases; mental health; the global health workforce; health systems; health policy; and public health. All original research will be subjected to The Lancet‘s usual rigorous standards of external clinical and statistical peer review, and will be edited by experienced copy editors to the highest standards.
