CAIRN-INT.INFO : International Edition


Santé Publique is a scientific journal with a French-speaking, generalist, and multidisciplinary reading committee supported by the Société Française de Santé Publique and led by an independent editorial committee. Its mission is to support research in public health, to assist in the sharing of knowledge between scholars and field workers, and to facilitate the practical exchanges between professionals.

Santé Publique adheres to the requirements of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE); all proposed papers are submitted to independent experts. The journal is indexed in the international databases Medline Excerpta Medica/EMBASE, BDSP, PASCAL, SCOPUS, and Science Citation Index, Journal Citation Report/Science Edition.

It publishes papers on research studies, analyses or intervention evaluations, summaries, reflections, and opinions on public health. To encourage and facilitate the exchange of experiences and knowledge, the journal has developed an original service supporting the publication of papers. Santé Publique publishes six issues a year with supplements of miscellaneous issues on a current thematic topic.

Santé Publique covers all fields of public health, including: social determinants of health, social inequalities of health, preventative health promotion, health education, environment, training of health professionals, nutrition, health policies (regulations, financing, etc.), resource planning, professional practices, access and recourse to healthcare, quality of care, health risk management, representation and perceived health, role of users and of the population, school health, work health, health systems, information systems, health monitoring, determinants of healthcare consumption, medico-economic organization and evaluation of care or prevention activities (hospital, medicines, etc.), and health programs, etc.

Since 2013, Santé Publique has incorporated a new column “Practices and Organization of Care” from the CNAMTS (French National Health Insurance Fund for Salaried Workers) journal. It has just completed the integration of two columns “Policies, Interventions, and Expertise in Public Health” and “Africa, Public Health, and Development,” which has allowed an amalgamation of the sectors of prevention and research in health services, recognized as a major challenge for our health system.
