Public Health Reports is the official journal of the U.S. Public Health Service. ASPH has been a partner in the publication of Public Health Reports since 1999.
Public Health Reports has established itself as one of the public health community's key information resources, since it was first published in 1878. We appreciate your past support of Public Health Reports, and would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to continue your subscription to the journal.
We publish this peer-reviewed journal once every two months--six issues offering articles in three main areas: public health practice, research, and viewpoints/commentaries. In the past five years we have tackled such topics as tobacco control, teenage violence, occupational disease and injury, immunization, drug policy, lead screening, health disparities, and many other key issues. The journal's authors are on the front line of public health, and we present their work in a readable and accessible format.
In addition to the articles, each edition offers recurring columns such as Law and the Public’s Health, News and Notes and NCHS Dataline. ASPH sponsors three columns in the journal; On Linkages, On Academics, and the Student Column. In each issue is the column Surgeon General’s Perspectives, written by the Office of the Surgeon General. This contribution has addressed several important public health topics, including childhood obesity, pre-term birth defects and deep vein thrombosis.
Public Health Reports has been one of the public health community's key information resources in the public health field for more than 125 years. Several subscription options exist, including online subscriptions, print subscriptions, or a subscription for both.

ASPH needs member faculty, students, fellows, and recent graduates to submit abstracts and articles for publication. Faculty members can submit abstracts to be considered for the On Academics and On Linkages columns. Current students, fellows, or recent graduates (up to two years post-graduation) can submit abstracts for the Student Column. All columns are peer-reviewed.
- On Academics features articles written about academic public health – specific topics may include curricula development, teaching techniques, and student/alumni training programs. Articles which highlight the short and long-term effect of academic public health on the public health workforce will be preferred.
- On Linkages features practice-based activities at the schools. Example topics include program evaluation, training programs, and community-based research. Authors should clearly identify the link between the activity at the school and the community.
- The Student Column features articles written about the many projects, internships, and other practice-related work conducted by students, fellows, and recent graduates during matriculation, during a fellowship, or up to two years post-graduation.
