Statistics and Health: In support of the study of the determinants of health (Special Issue)

December 2013 will close the Year of Statistics, a reminder of the past decades’ achievements and advancements in Science. Statistics have strongly contributed to the advancement of science with the development of solid research instruments but also by bringing us closer to each other by sharing the same language, similar logic, and concurrent findings.

The Interdisciplinary Journal of Health Sciences is planning to publish a special issue in Spring 2014, highlighting the critical role of statistics in the analysis of the determinants of health, the foundation of this journal. Key figures in the fields of Statistics, Biostatistics, Health Economics, Epidemiology, Medicine, and International Development and Cooperation will participate in the making of this special issue as a landmark and inspiration for the future generations of health analysts.

We are pleased to invite students, professors, and professionals to submit an original research article (3000 words), an essay (750 words), or a review paper (750 words) in English or French before Monday, March 31st, 2014 on one of the following:

  • A research paper on a health issue OR on one of the twelve determinants of health (as listed by the Public Health Agency of Canada), using statistics and statistical methods, mainly showing the clear benefits brought by the use of statistics;
  • A review of a textbook, a chapter of an edited book, or a peer-reviewed article featuring the use of statistical methods in the research of a particular determinant of health;
  • An essay on the development of a particular standard or indicator and its impact on public health research and interventions.

Please check our basic formatting criteria.

Manuscripts will be peer-reviewed. Selected articles will be published in the IJHS’ Special Issue on Statistics and Health. As the IJHS is a bilingual and an open-access endeavour, every abstract will be translated and all articles will be freely accessible to the public.
