About

Aims and scope

The Journal of the Egyptian Public Health Association (JEPHA) aims to advance the field of public health by publishing research that seeks solutions to the challenges encountered by managers within the health system. It publishes research in the full spectrum of public health and community medicine fields including epidemiology, health management, statistics, occupational and environmental health, family health and tropical health. Research that has a greater impact on public health such as studies reporting on the development of effective interventions, program evaluation, and innovative types of research such as pragmatic clinical trials will be given priority. The journal is particularly interested in receiving submissions that address emerging health problems and submissions focusing on Egyptian strategic health priorities.

JEPHA welcomes research articles, review articles, short reports, and letters to the editor. We welcome research from both regional and international faculty and scholars.

Peer Review Policy

Peer-review is the system used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the relevant research area assess submitted manuscripts for originality, validity and significance to help editors determine whether the manuscript should be published in their journal. You can read more about the peer-review process here.

Journal of the Egyptian Public Health Association operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. Publication of research articles by Journal of the Egyptian Public Health Association is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by our external expert editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field. Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. Reviewers will also be asked to indicate how interesting and significant the research is. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
