The Lancet Launches Free, Open-Access Online Global Health Journal

Tom Paulson | Humanosphere | June 25, 2013

pre-eminent biomedical science journals and arguably the leading research publication focused on global health, has launched its first ever free, open-access journal – devoted to covering global health.

Richard Horton, editor of the Lancet, was in Seattle last week for a big meeting on global health metrics. Horton is always lively and entertaining, so we can hope this new journal will be the same. The new editor for this project, Zoë Mullan, discussed the new publication with Horton in this video below explaining the rationale for this new publication celebrating that there will be ‘no barriers’ to public access.
