Editors in Chief, Health Sociology Review
Health Sociology Review is an international peer-reviewed journal, which publishes high quality conceptual and empirical research in the sociology of health, illness and medicine.
Published three times per year, the journal prioritises original research papers, papers that advance theory and methodology in the field of health sociology and special issues on matters of central importance to health sociology and related fields.
Review articles are published upon occasion, but must extend conceptual understanding in health sociology, not just review what is known about a particular topic.
