A Researcher's Guide to Health Education Journals
Abstract:Objective: To develop a useful tool to assist health education researchers match their manuscript submissions with the most appropriate journals. Methods: The Delphi method was used to elicit information from health education leaders/scholars to determine (a) primary content areas in health education, (b) preeminent journals, and (c) information about the journals. Results: Nine categories and 86 journals were selected. The following is presented for each journal: circulation, rejection rate, indexes in which cited, number of issues, pages per issue, article length, articles per issue, time between submission and notification, time between acceptance and publication, peer review policy, style, CEUs, and journal descriptions. Conclusion: Journals vary widely. Matching manuscripts to appropriate journals, and addressing issues related to indexing, can facilitate the dissemination of quality research in health education.
