Posted on

The Lancet has launched a new open-access global health journal! According to Richard Horton, editor of The Lancet, open-access publishing is something he and others at The Lancet have wanted to do for a long time. In this video, Horton chats with Zoë Mullan, the new editor for the global health journal, about the importance of barrier-free publishing of global health research. They also discuss the types of content they plan to publish in the new journal.

About the first issue of the Lancet Global Health journal:

The first issue contains a diverse selection of high-quality research Articles and associated Comments on maternal and child anaemia, intrauterine growth restriction, cataract surgery (with accompanying podcast), and causes of non-malarial fever in a malaria-endemic setting.

Along with the new journal, The Lancet has also launched a new global health blog.  Zoë Mullan describes the new blog:

This interactive site will feature opinion pieces from some well known faces in global health, as well as newer kids on the block. It will also act as a discussion forum for the research articles and other content we publish on The Lancet Global Health journal website.
