Call for Papers: American Journal of Field Epidemiology - fourth issue

TEPHINET Secretariat

TEPHINET is excited to share the call for papers for the fourth issue of the American Journal of Field Epidemiology. The American Journal of Field Epidemiology (AJFE), launching its fourth issue in December 2023, aims to support the development of field epidemiologic practice on the American continent, including North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean region. 

The launch of the fourth issue of the AJFE marks a year of a dedicated international field epidemiology journal. AJFE is dedicated to promoting and disseminating high-quality research in the field of field epidemiology and public health. It is committed to academic excellence and the promotion of knowledge in this critical field of health sciences.

Articles will be open-access, published in four languages–English, French, Spanish and Portuguese–and feature scientific work of interest to field epidemiologists working in North, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. It will also feature ongoing research of current events, providing early warnings of emerging public health threats, papers on analysis of public health surveillance data depicting new findings, as well as reviews, discussions on lessons learned, a trainer’s corner to build training capacity, and correspondence from the readers. The journal focuses on articles submitted from the Americas region, but will accept one article from outside of that region to publish in each edition.

AJFE invites FETP trainees, alumni and public health professionals and scientists from any region to submit manuscripts for its fourth issue to be released December 2023. The journal is always accepting submissions; there is no deadline to submit. Manuscripts may be submitted in English, French, Portuguese, or Spanish; however, regardless of the language of the manuscript, an English version of the abstract is required.
