The Canadian Journal of Public Health in 2010/la Revue Canadienne De Santé Publique En 2010


Paradis, Gilles, Canadian Journal of Public Health


The beginning of a New Year is often a time to reflect on the past and make wishes for the future. It is particularly appropriate to do so this year as we embark on the second century of existence of the Canadian Public Health Association and its Journal! To this end, we published Historical Notes and Invited Commentaries in 2009 to document and analyze our past and contribute to a debate about future public health challenges. We will continue these features in 2010 and gradually add new ones to address important challenges for public health in the next decade.

Our mission is to publish the best scientific manuscripts we can in the field of public and population health and to contribute to the strengthening of intellectual life of this field in Canada and beyond. There are many ways the Journal can accomplish this, however our means are limited. Journal activities depend on a small but highly effective and dedicated staff, many volunteer reviewers and a few volunteer editorial board members. We will create a more functional editorial board in 2010 and expand its membership to tap into the broad Canadian expertise and to stimulate new ideas and strategies to achieve our goals. We will also invite public health leaders to provide directions and advice to the Journal on an International Advisory Board.

We will add associate editors to oversee regular thematic sections on ethics, the history of public health, intervention research, quantitative and qualitative methods and theories, global health and Aboriginal health; to generate submission of manuscripts; and to stimulate lively debates and discussions in these areas. We will still welcome submissions in all fields of public and population health. Identifying thematic priorities, however, allows us to recognize the importance of some sectors (intervention research, global and Aboriginal health) in achieving meaningful improvements in peoples' health, increasing the knowledge base of researchers and practitioners in multidisciplinary approaches to public health problems (quantitative and qualitative methods and theories) and contributing to the growth of our understanding of essential concepts, ideas, principles and values critical to an effective public health system (history and ethics). These priorities will be revisited regularly to ensure that the Journal remains topical and relevant to the field.

Associate editors and board members are currently being recruited. We invite you to send us your suggestions for further improvements to the Journal and to contribute your best and most relevant manuscripts to enhance public health research and practice over the next decade.

On behalf of the CJPH staff and editorial board, our very best wishes to all our readership for a dynamic and successful year!

La Revue canadienne de santé publique en 2010

Le début d'une nouvelle année est souvent un temps pour réfléchir au passé et exprimer des souhaits pour l'avenir. Il est particulièrement approprié de le faire cette année à l'amorce du deuxième siècle d'existence de l'Association canadienne de santé publique et de sa Revue! …
