Abstract


After nearly one year of planning and infrastructure acquisition, we are happy to publish the first issue of the International Journal of Translational Medical Research and Public Health (IJTMRPH). IJTMRPH is a hybrid open-access, online only global health journal with a unique mission to provide a forum for the dissemination of scholarly work that translates the implications of medical, public and population health research into policy and practical actions that improve the health and well-being of populations.  IJTMRPH fills a gap that has not received distinct attention in the field of public and population health—that is, the translation of research into actions that alleviate suffering and save lives. IJTMRPH’s editorial philosophy will be centered on our authors, readers, and the program and policy communities. We are looking for innovative researchers with rigorous research. In addition to the foundation of rigorous applied research, we anticipate that, authors will attempt to identify the implications of their scientific work well beyond the pages of scholarly journals or within the confines of classrooms and ivory towers. The journal looks for researchers willing to push the boundaries of rigorous and evidence-based research by identifying real-world applications of their research findings. 

Key words: Translational Research • Translational Public Health • Translational Medical Research.
