PLOS Global Public Health, a new Open Access journal for diverse research addressing global public health challenges and inequities

PLOS Global Public Health is a global forum for public health research that reaches across disciplines and regional boundaries to address some of the biggest health challenges and inequities facing our society today.­­ We will work alongside researchers to drive diversity at all levels—editors, editorial boards, peer reviewers and authors—to broaden the range of perspectives we learn from to advance the health of all humankind. We empower researchers to make work of the highest methodological and ethical rigor openly available to the researchers, policy experts, clinicians and patients who depend on it.
