Official Journal

The International Journal of Men’s Social and Community Health (IJMSCH) became GAMH’s official journal in October 2020.

IJMSCH is an interdisciplinary journal that aims to contribute to the advancement of men’s health by publishing high quality research, policy and practice papers of contemporary relevance. There is specific focus on health experiences, social context and on community-based approaches to maintaining or improving men’s and boys’ health and wellbeing. IJMSCH has also published several papers on aspects of men’s health policy, both national and international.

GAMH and IJMSCH are very well-aligned in terms of areas of interest, a commitment to translating research into policy and practice, and shared values. Moreover, the two organisations already have very close ties: IJMSCH’s Editor, Steve Robertson, is a GAMH member as are several members of the Editorial Board and GAMH’s Director, Peter Baker, and its Chair, Anthony Brown, are longstanding members of the Board.

Our new partnership means that GAMH and IJMSCH will collaborate even more closely with GAMH now strategically involved in the editorial focus and direction of IJMSCH. There will also be a significantly reduced Article Processing Charge for any accepted article by a GAMH member.
