BMC Public Health publishes selected collections of research articles, conference proceedings, reviews and reports as supplements. While we build our new sites all supplements will be available here.

Aims and scope

BMC Public Health is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the epidemiology of disease and the understanding of all aspects of public health. The journal has a special focus on the social determinants of health, the environmental, behavioral, and occupational correlates of health and disease, and the impact of health policies, practices and interventions on the community.
