Ebola - Call for Papers
With the recent resurgence of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the journal is launching a special issue on the virus. The journal will serve as an educated and authoritative voice on the virus, risk and threat level, potential of outbreak, preparation and response for the public and media.
The Journal of Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness, began covering events in their entirety via special issues back in 2014. In doing so, the journal publishes in real time over the total extent of an event or crisis - from beginning to end. Due to the intensity surrounding the Ebola virus, coverage may extend beyond one special issue.
Global experts, responders, and scientific and medical professionals in both the Ebola virus and public health will support and supply content for this special and timely issue. Material will be published accordingly after peer review. Submit manuscripts to mc.manuscriptcentral.com/dmp
