COVID-19 update for authors, reviewers, editors and readers

The Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Journal continues to operate normally at this time to provide timely open access publication of research content. However, in light of the current situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and our ties to public health, we appreciate that challenges may arise in your work, your ability to conduct and/or review research, and your ability to prepare or revise manuscript submissions.  As such, the Journal will remain supportive and flexible with editorial and production deadlines. We encourage authors, peer reviewers and editors to reach out to us if you need additional time or accommodation.

Call to action for open access publications from the Chief Science Advisor to members of the scholarly publishing community.
