From genome-based sciences to global public health
Public Health Genomics aims to bring principles of population science to the translation of genomic discovery for public health benefit globally. The three key functions of public health: Assessment, Policy Development, and Assurance, along with the cross-cutting theme of health equity, provide the framework for reviewing the appropriateness of submissions. To that end, the journal welcomes original research, notes from the field, reviews and commentaries within the following public health genomics research domains:
Surveillance Research focusing on efforts to monitor genetic factors that affect community health, and identify genetic risk factors influenced by avoidable environmental elements including behaviors.
Behavioral Research focusing on using information from genomic discovery to influence health behaviors.
Communication Research focusing on research to promote awareness and literacy among patient, community, and health professional populations to empower optimal access and uptake of genomics applications.
Community Engagement Research focusing on efforts (e.g., needs assessments) to engage stakeholders in the development and evaluation of interventions in community, clinical, organizational, and policy relating to genomics-informed health promotion.
ELSI Research focusing on work aimed to assess the ethical, legal, and social implications of genomic innovations for public health, clinical practice, and public policy.
Implementation Science Research focusing on the use of innovative study designs to test optimal approaches to integrating effective interventions into community, clinical, and other settings to promote health.
Across each of these domains, we especially encourage submissions focused on promoting health equity (e.g., addressing health disparities).
