New Global Digital Health Journal - Oxford Open Digital Health

18 June, 2022

Dear Digital Health and Informatics Colleagues,

It is a great privilege to announce the launch of the Oxford University Press OXFORD OPEN DIGITAL HEALTH Journal. Supported by an outstanding team of inaugural Associate Editors Smisha Agarwal, Oomen John, Alvin Marcelo and Walter H. Curioso, as well as a growing, globally diverse Advisory Board -- we are focused on strengthening the scholarship around Digital Health in low and middle-income countries. We invite methodologically rigorous evaluations, evidence reviews, study protocols and other policy-relevant research on Digital Health Interventions. Special efforts are being made to promote authorship equity and to focus on topics relevant to implementers.

Authors are asked to align to World Health Organization (WHO) DH guidelines for reporting, and to register innovations on the Global Digital Health Atlas as a means of growing our community of learning and practice. We hope these efforts will complement the excellent work that several other journals have been doing in strengthening the DH evidence-base, helping to relieve some of the Pandemic delays authors have experienced in getting research published. Your collective help in supporting timely reviews will be invaluable to this endeavor's success.

We look forward to serving the broad community of practice in Global Digital Health, and welcome your suggestions, advice and feedback as we move forward in this exciting new journey.

Thank you all for your support and help in spreading the news!
