Call for Papers
Epidemiologic Reviews
2018 Theme Issue (Volume 40)
Epidemiologic Approaches to Prisoners’ Health

Epidemiologic Reviews, a sister publication of the American Journal of Epidemiology, is devoted to publishing comprehensive and critical reviews on specific themes once a year. It is ranked in the top 5 of 160 public, environmental, and occupational health journals.

The theme of the 2018 issue (volume 40) will be Prisoners’ Health. Submission of reviews is now solicited on content and method topics related to health issues such as HIV/AIDS, other sexually transmitted infections, addiction, tuberculosis, viral hepatitis, mental illness, aging prison population and chronic diseases, and availability and effectiveness of intervention strategies. Please note that reviews on other aspects of prisoners’ health are also welcome.

Manuscripts can be up to 6,000 words exclusive of the abstract, tables, figures, and references. All papers must be reviews of studies that are mostly epidemiologic in nature; a report of a single study is not acceptable. Give explicit details of the method of literature search, and use systematic reviews or meta-analysis when appropriate.

Authors are encouraged to submit abstracts by March 1, 2017, to allow for early editorial input. Abstracts should be emailed to the editor-in-chief ( Complete manuscripts are due May 1, 2017; these will be received whether authors submitted abstracts or not.
