Journal of Refugee & Global Health

Welcome to Journal of Refugee & Global Health.

The Journal of Refugee & Global Health is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal fully-subsidized by the University of Louisville, with no fees to access, submit, or publish content. This gives us a unique opportunity to offer an open-access journal that does not require (1) a fee for submitting or reading content, or (2) payment for authors to publish. We firmly believe that those practicing, researching, and studying refugee and global health should not be required to pay to publish or disseminate articles that inform the community about their work.

The journal was founded as a home for high-quality content, including original research, case studies, program reviews, and editorials from experts in a wide range of disciplines - all designed to help inform practitioners, researchers, and students regarding happenings in practice across the globe.

See the Aims and Scope for a complete coverage of the journal.
