HPHR Journal (formerly known as the Harvard Public Health Review) is an academic, peer-reviewed public health journal. The Journal has undergone significant expansion in its scope and format since launching in 2014. The Journal currently is indexed by JSTOR; however, the Journal will be equipped with DOI in Winter 2021.
HPHR invites submissions from emerging and established researchers representing diverse settings, including universities, nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations, hospitals and other health settings, community-based organizations, and others. All submissions are expected to speak to the mission and vision of the Journal and address public health issues within an evidence-based and health equity framework.
To ensure a dynamic showcase for contributors’ diverse research interests, talents, and creativity, HPHR seeks a range of materials. Complete submission guidelines and templates are provided in the Submissions section. You may go straight to the submissions portal here.
HPHR currently is not charging publication fees. The Journal does charge a $15 reading fee per submission. (Waived fees will be considered on a very limited, case-by-case basis.)
