Prestigious Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene journals join Oxford University Press
Date:8/23/2012

The Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene's two prestigious journals will join the Oxford University Press (OUP) collection in a new partnership announced between the organizations.

The journals, Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and International Health, seek to promote and advance the study, control, and prevention of diseases in humans and other animals in the tropics and sub-tropics. The Society plays a leading role in increasing awareness of tropical medicine and international health issues throughout the world.

Gerri McHugh, CEO of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, said: "We are delighted to announce this new partnership with OUP which comes at a critical and hugely exciting time in our growth; we look forward to working with OUP to strategically develop our journals to their fullest potential in terms of their relevance, scope, reach and impact."

Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene is a well-established journal, founded in 1907, and is currently ranked sixth in impact factor for the Tropical Medicine category. It is a monthly journal which focuses on clinical tropical medicine and public health research, and presents the results of research that is broadly intelligible to readers from a range of disciplines.

The younger of the Society's journals, International Health, concentrates on health care delivery and analysis in the fields of global medicine and international health. It is committed to advancing health for all people around the world and is an indispensable resource for all those with an interest in international health issues.

These titles offer a comprehensive range of multidisciplinary research and review papers, covering topics ranging from public health and infectious diseases, to health economics and healthcare systems.

Michael Brown, Editorial Director at Oxford University Press said: "We are delighted to be partnering with the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene for the publication of their two journals. The society plays a leading role in increasing awareness throughout the world of tropical medicine and international health issues. We are looking forward to working with the Society in developing the profile of the journals, with the aim of Transactions of the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene becoming the leader in the field and further growing International Health into a well-known and respected journal in all global regions."
