About the Journal

Welcome to the Journal of Rural and Tropical Public Health!

The Journal of Rural and Tropical Public Health is a free international peer-reviewed online publication featuring original research, review, and management articles in the broad area of public health with a special focus on rural, tropical and disaster situations. First time authors are encouraged to submit their work. Health professionals, academics, researchers and students are encouraged to consider aspects of their work, projects and theses for publication in appropriate format. All accepted manuscripts are published in full, with open access and no strict limits on word counts.

The Journal of Rural and Tropical Public Health arose from an edited volume published by the Australasian College of Tropical Medicine in 2001 (listed as VOLUME 0). When this volume proved to be successful and further papers were submitted for a second volume, the peer-reviewed Journal of Rural and Remote Environmental Health was created and volumes 1-3 were published from 2002 to 2004 by Warwick Educational Publishing Inc.

The Journal of Rural and Tropical Public Health is based in Townsville, Australia. The Anton Breinl Centre of Public Health and Tropical Medicine at James Cook University initially supported the Journal by hosting its articles, and now officially hosts and manages the renamed journal in its current and expanded form. The Anton Breinl Centre is an internationally acclaimed research and teaching institute focusing on rural and tropical public health issues.

Dr Deon Canyon created the journal and was Editor-in-Chief until 2008 when the reins were handed over to Mr Adrian Miller. Dr Petra Buettner assumed the role of Editor-in-Chief in May 2009. At the beginning of 2012 the Journal of Rural Tropical Public Health merged with the Journal of Rural and Remote Health.
