Healthcare in Low-resource Settings

Healthcare in Low-resource Settings is an open access, peer-reviewed journal which aims to publish high quality, outcome-based research conducted in or applicable to low-resource settings. Potential topics of interest are also: comparison of different medical procedures in terms of their effects on the healthcare resources; education of health professionals in rural areas; strategies to formulate effective health policies in those areas, and guidelines targeted specifically to them; advances in healthcare resource management.

Healthcare in Low-resource Settings publishes editorials, research articles, reviews (narrative, systematic and meta-analysis), case reports, debate articles, short reports, letters to the Editor, and study protocols. The Journal also publishes thematic issues focusing on a single topic within the scope of the journal. Contextually relevant announcements, book reviews and abstracts from scientific meetings may also be hosted. Every article published in the Journal will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field and decided on by members of the editorial board.

Applications for a New Editor-in-Chief


Applications are invited for a new Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare in Low-resource Settings

Dr. Norman David Goldstuck has fulfilled his term as Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare in Low-resource Settings. We are grateful to him for all his efforts and hard work in making the name of the journal well-known; we are proud of this achievement.

We have now planned new and broaden goals for this successful Journal: we inform you that applications are welcome for a new Editor-in-Chief. The contribution of the new Editor-in-Chief will be crucial to carry on the work started with Dr. Goldstuck and make the journal grow, thus becoming a unique and recognized journal.

The main role of the EIC should be to assume the responsibility of leading the current Editorial Board (or, if necessary, revising it by adding new members); together the new EIC and the Editorial Board will review and select manuscripts for online publication on our site; all EIC duties are managed directly online using the journal website. The EIC also plays an important role in the journal's endorsement, representing it at international and national meetings of interest and stimulating new submissions.

If you are interested in our project, please send us a copy of your curriculum vitae, including your study record and a brief list of your main publications for our internal evaluation.
