Frontiers, one of the world's fastest-growing Open Access publishers and among the largest social networking platforms for researchers, announces the launch of a new journal, Frontiers in Public Health.
Frontiers in Public Health will publish high quality, rigorously peer-reviewed articles on the most outstanding discoveries and leading thoughts across the entire research spectrum of Public Health.
On the Frontiers interactive web platform, diverse and emerging research areas will come together to empower the public health community to steer research, policy, debate and intervention toward the future, with a range of open research and communication tools.
Frontiers recently announced a strategic partnership with Nature Publishing Group, to bring its publishing model for interactive peer review and open science communication to the field of public and global health.
