Call for Peer Reviewers:
Journal of the Georgia Public Health Association
jGPHA seeks scholars, researchers and practitioners who are experts in public health (e.g., health management and administration, epidemiology, behavioral health, health education, environmental and occupational health, biostatistics) and other related disciplines to serve as peer reviewers.
Peer reviewers play a critical role in the quality of jGPHA by conducting critical and thorough reviews of articles that cut across a broad range of methodologies, designs, and disciplines. If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer, please register on the GPHA website (www.gapha.org) and list your review interests in terms of topics, research and/or practice. Submissions will be prescreened and then distributed electronically to peer reviewers for critiquing according to standardized review criteria. Peer reviewers are expected to provide authors with substantive, timely, and constructive reviews and to make recommendations to the journal’s Editorial Board regarding appropriateness of the work for inclusion in the journal.
jGPHA requests that all reviewers provide evidence of training on the protection of human research participants. NIH offers a free training course titled “Protecting Human Research Participants” available through its’ Office of Extramural Research (https://phrp.nihtraining.com). Other similar courses, such as those provided through ones institution or via CITI (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative) are acceptable. Evidence of completion, along with any questions, should be directed to the Editors.
