Epidemiology and Biostatistics

  E-mail   Print

Summary

Epidemiology is concerned with defining and understanding the distribution and determinants of health and disease in populations, and applying this knowledge to control health problems. Although primarily focused on human health through population studies, Epidemiology is informed by a wide variety of sciences, including animal experiments, mechanistic studies in vitro, pharmacological and toxicity studies, and a variety of clinical studies focused on prevention and treatment of human ailments. Thus, Epidemiology is a central science in public health and medicine, and a core discipline in most public health programs.

AIMS Public Health has included a section dedicated to Epidemiology and encourages submissions of papers that enhance knowledge of human health and disease knowledge through epidemiologic studies, and those that address methodological issues that may influence how epidemiologic studies are interpreted. Contributions should be focused on one or multiple levels of determinants and be based on sound frameworks or theory. Research that has clear implications to public health is particularly encouraged.
