Peer Review Process

ANNALS OF GLOBAL HEALTH employs a rigorous, single-blind peer-review process to evaluate manuscripts for scientific accuracy, novelty, and importance.

Authorship Policy

It is the responsibility of every person listed as an author of an article published in ANNALS OF GLOBAL HEALTH to have contributed in a meaningful way to the design, performance, analysis, and reporting of the work.

As stated in the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations, credit for authorship requires:

  • Substantial contributions to conception and design; or acquisition, analysis, or interpretation of data
  • Drafting of the article or critical revision for important intellectual content
  • Final approval of the version to be published
  • Agreement to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the article are appropriately investigated and resolved

Conflict of Interest Policy

At the time of submission of a manuscript, ANNALS OF GLOBAL HEALTH requires that all authors submit a completed, signed copy of the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form developed by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). Authors must disclose any affiliations with any organizations that to any author's knowledge have a direct interest, particularly a financial interest, in the subject matter or materials discussed. The single most important piece of information to be disclosed is the source of funding for the study.

Ethics and Consent Policy

Research involving human subjects, human material, or human data, must have been performed in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki. Where applicable, studies must have been approved by an appropriate ethics committee and the authors should include a statement within the article text detailing this approval, including the name of the ethics committee and reference number of the approval. The identity of the research subject(s) should be anonymised whenever possible. For research involving human subjects, informed consent to participate in the study must be obtained from participants (or their legal guardian) and added to this statement. If a study involving human subjects/tissue/data was exempt from requiring ethical approval, a confirmation statement from the relevant body should be included within the submission.
