About The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and Society:
The International Journal of Health, Wellness, and
Society offers an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of issues
at the intersection of human physiology, epidemiology, and its relation
to medical public policy, health education, and the cultural
associations of well-being. The concept of “health and wellness”
impacts all members of society, whether at a personal level in the
positive senses of healthy behavior and increased preventative care, or
problematically, through the cost and availability of remedial
healthcare. Contributions to the journal range from broad scientific,
sociological, philosophical, and public policy explorations to detailed
studies of particular physiological health issues and social dynamics.
We welcome case studies and research that utilize primary and secondary
data to advance important theoretical issues affecting the sociology
of international health. The 2015 acceptance rate was 28%. Founded in
2011, the journal has published over 200 articles in 5 volumes. The
journal is indexed by Academic Search Alumni Edition, Academic Search
Elite, Academic Search Index, Academic Search Premier, Academic Search
Complete, Academic Search Research & Development.
Andrea Baumann is the Associate Vice-President, Global Health, and the Scientific
Director of the Nursing Health Services Research Unit (McMaster Site).
She has been with the School of Nursing since 1988 and served as the
