PLOS Publishes First Papers for PLOS Global Public Health

PLOS Global Public Health published its initial cohort of papers on Oct. 13, 2021. PLOS notes that it “announced the launch of five new journals earlier this year and PLOS Global Public Health is the first of these journals with papers ready for publication. The journal’s mission is to address deeply entrenched global inequities in public health by broadening the range of perspectives from which we learn. The journal has so far received more than 700 submissions from researchers around the world.”

“In full alignment with the proposed UNESCO Recommendation on Open Science, our journal will ensure diversity and equity of representation at all levels—editors, editorial boards, reviewers, authors—and will intentionally seek out research from under-represented communities,” says Julia Robinson, executive editor of PLOS Global Public Health. “We want to amplify expert perspectives from every region of the world to reach across disciplines and continents. We believe diversity makes science stronger.”
