The International Electronic Journal of Health Education encourages submissions from health educators and other health professionals that focus on two areas:
A. International health education and promotion
International health education and promotion including articles that focus on programs and research in countries outside the US and articles from within the US that deal with immigrant populations or international outreach activities such as study abroad programs.
It will be essential for authors who submit an article, which is international in nature, to demonstrate the relevance of the research or program being described to the international health education and promotion community.
B. Technology based health education and promotion programs
Health education and promotion articles are welcome that are most effectively published using the technology available through the Internet. Examples might include reports of computerized health assessments or audio/visual intervention programs. Articles might be accompanied by computer software, PowerPoint presentations, website links or a/v streaming to demonstrate a technology based project or product. These articles may originate from any geographic location, however it will be essential for authors who submit a technology based article to demonstrate the centrality of computer or Internet technology to either the content or presentation of the article
Many types of manuscripts are suitable. Articles may be theoretical, practical, technical or historical. The IEJHE will accept manuscripts having broad general application and implication for health education and promotion. Authors are encouraged to submit health education and promotion manuscripts related to three categories:
