Global Health Governance
The Scholarly Journal for the New Health Security Paradigm
Call for Submissions
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Global Health Governance
The Spring 2011 issue of Global Health Governance will focus on the Intersection of Health and Security. Health and security challenges are increasingly intertwined, with health threats viewed as security threats, and health programs viewed as a means to enhanced security. Close linkages of health and security concerns, in the United States and elsewhere, have resulted in new resources for health programs and a higher profile for health in national security circles. This new relationship is far from comfortable, however, as security priorities bear more saliently on issues many health and scientific professionals view through a humanitarian or technical lens, and as security-oriented organizations are called on to deliver health services or to support medical countermeasure development for diseases of international public health importance.
Research and commentary submissions are welcome from a wide variety of disciplinary background including public health, political science and international relations, international law, philosophy, anthropology, business, economics and government. Authors intending to submit a manuscript should submit a proposed title, author names, and an abstract of no more than 250 words by October 15, 2010. Authors invited to contribute a full manuscript will be notified by November 1, and should submit the manuscript for peer review by March 1, 2011. Accepted manuscripts will be published in the special issue in June 2011. The guest editors for this special issue are Gigi Kwik Gronvall, PhD, Senior Associate of the Center for Biosecurity of UPMC and Jean-Paul Chretien, MD PhD, Commanding General Staff, II Marine Expeditionary Force

• Submissions for this special issue should be made by email, in Microsoft Word format, to Gigi Kwik Gronvall, firstname.lastname@example.org or Jean-Paul Chretien, email@example.com.
