Aims and scope

International Journal of Health Geographics is fully dedicated to publishing novel, high quality and internationally significant manuscripts on all aspects of geospatial information systems and science applications in health and healthcare.

International Journal of Health Geographics covers a wide range of interdisciplinary geospatial topics in a health/healthcare context, from spatial data infrastructure and Web geospatial interoperability research, to research into real-time Geographic Information Systems (GIS)-enabled surveillance services, remote sensing applications, spatial epidemiology, spatio-temporal statistics, and even cyberspace mapping. The journal is thus of interest to audiences from many different fields.
