Academic and professional literature publisher Emerald Group Publishing Ltd., UK, has announced the publication of the inaugural issue of the International Journal of Workplace Health Management. The journal claims to be first scholarly journal in this evolving field.
International Journal of Workplace Health Management seeks to bridge research and practice in workplace health and be the primary source of information on this topic for researchers, practitioners and organisations. It will publish current research and debate on all aspects of workplace health, from both the wider public health perspective and the perspective of the individual organisation. In the premier issue, four of the five Associate Editors of the journal review the literature in their respective area of expertise and outline areas for future research.
The journal will be available in print and electronic formats, with three issues and 15 papers a year. It is anticipated that the journal will publish at least one 'best practice' case study from the workplace in every issue.
