About us

Public Health Research & Practice is an open-access, quarterly, online journal with a strong focus on the connection between research, policy and practice.

It publishes innovative, high-quality papers that inform public health policy and practice, paying particular attention to innovations, data and perspectives from policy and practice.

The journal is published by the Sax Institute, a national leader in promoting the use of research evidence in health policy. Formerly known as The NSW Public Health Bulletin, the journal has a long history. It was published by the NSW Ministry of Health for nearly a quarter of a century.

Responsibility for its publication transferred to the Sax Institute in 2014. The journal continues to be supported by the NSW Ministry of Health and receives guidance from an expert editorial board.
