The Stanford Journal of Public Health (SJPH) is an annual, student-led publication centered at Stanford University dedicated to connecting different players in the public health community — inviting undergraduate students, graduate scholars, and distinguished experts — to discuss central conversations revolving around public health. The Journal features a multi-faceted approach to public health issues and is divided into three sections:
- Exploration and innovation: showcases cutting-edge research on current public health issues and outcomes; spotlights potential tools for public health enhancement and profiles practice-based approaches to public health.
- Governance: introduces potential and current systemic policy-based public health approaches
- Reflections: a space for personal narratives and experiences related to public health journeys and stories.
We seek to provide those at Stanford and at other peer universities to engage in these discussions and introduce new research by contributing to the Journal. The Journal offers interested individuals the opportunity for tangible contributions to the public health sector and simultaneously raises awareness of relevant critical issues in community health.
“We welcome topics ranging from art and culture to technology or social justice...we welcome strong, provocative writing backed by insightful analysis, original reporting or personal experience, and pitches can, of course, be inspired by academic work you have done. We are a non-partisan publication, which does not mean that what we publish cannot be ideological, but rather means we welcome perspectives from anywhere on the political spectrum. Stanford Politics aspires to illuminate important issues that people may not be aware of, contribute new and unique ideas to existing discussions or debates and provide thought-provoking challenges to, or critiques of, conventional wisdom.”

All submitted papers undergo review by SURJ’s team of editors, who subsequently deliberate and select the best submitted papers for publication.”
