Call for Papers--Context, A Student Health Professionals Journal

Context Journal (
is the nation's first student-run, online, peer-reviewed journal that
highlights the exceptional work of health students in the community.
Context publishes the work of graduate-level students across the United
States and Canada who strive to improve the health of our communities
in a variety of modalities including: policy research, program
evaluation, community partnership, and patient empowerment.  The
journal seeks papers that address health issues confronted by students
in their communities such as

  • Reflections on how community service, patient advocacy, or
    participatory research impact growing health professionals personally
    and professionally
  • Best Practices leaving a "road map" behind for students
    addressing similar health issues who may learn from those that came
    before rather than redesigning the wheel
  • Program Evaluations that hold standards to community work so that
    it may become ever more refined, measurably successful, and prestigious
  • Curricular Reform Descriptions proposing or describing changes to formal curricula that incorporate the community
  • Analysis of Policy (real or proposed) identifying key barriers to change and implications of such policies for communities

Papers are accepted on a rolling-basis. To submit your paper, please go to
and read our submission guidelines within the About Us Section. Please
note that papers submitted by January 31, 2006, are guaranteed
consideration for publication in the Inaugural Issue of Context.
