Vision for PLOS Global Public Health

In April we announced the launch of our first journals in fourteen years. One of these journals is PLOS Global Public Health.  On June 14th, the Editors-in-Chief of the journal along with PLOS’ Executive Editor, published an editorial that took an in-depth look at why the journal is needed at this time. Today, we get a brief snapshot into their vision for the journal.

What’s our vision for PLOS Global Public Health? 

PLOS Global Public Health aims to respond to the calls of our research community and will deliberately prioritize amplifying voices from scientists, health care workers, policy makers, and advocates from historically excluded and underrepresented communities across the globe. We will partner with researchers to drive equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels – editors, editorial boards, peer reviewers and authors– to broaden the range of perspectives we learn from to advance the health of all humankind. 

What makes PLOS Global Public Health? 

We empower researchers to make work of the highest methodological and ethical rigor openly available to the researchers, decision makers, clinicians and patients who depend on it to tackle urgent health crises and advance progress against long-standing challenges.

What features excite us the most? 

Equity, diversity and inclusion are core to the journal’s mission – this will be deliberate at every level of the journal, from its leadership (Editors-in-Chief), to Section Editors and the Editorial Board, to the authors and communities it serves.
