I hereby am pleased to announce the launch of a new journal Journal of Public Health and Emergency (JPHE), an open access, peer-reviewed international online journal.
According to World Health Organization (WHO), public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole (1). It is an international major issue, needing tremendous multidisciplinary co-operations. Emergency means a sudden situation, life-threatening, or property-damaging, or environmental damaging et al. We decide to set the two concerning issues as the main scope of the new journal, aiming at advancing the research, policy, practice, and education of public health and emergency medicine. JPHE publishes original research articles and reviews on public health and emergency, including health improvement, health protection, service improvement, acute injury and sudden illness et al.
JPHE will be published by AME Publishing Company, an international publisher of medical books and journals, who now owns more than 20 journals covering different fields of Medicine including oncology, pulmonology, cardiothoracic disease and urology etc. The journal is sponsored by Jiangsu Province Center for Disease Control and Prevention (JSCDC), a non-profit institution directly led by Department of Health of Jiangsu Province focusing on disease prevention and control and it is co-sponsored by Nanjing Prevention and Treatment Center for Occupational Diseases (NJCOD), Changzhou Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CZCDC), Jiangyin Center for Disease Control and Prevention (JYCDC), SIP Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (SIPCDC), Suzhou New District Center for Disease Control and Prevention (SNDCDC), Heron, and SKYTE Testing Services.
