and Dissemination Opportunities
In addition to having their abstracts
appear in the conference program, conference presenters will have
opportunities to submit their work for peer-reviewed publication. Two
such opportunities are described below. Authors will receive submission
details when they are notified of the outcome of their proposal
submission. Additional publication opportunities will be published on
the conference website.
in November 2009, CES4Health is a free and open-access online portal
for peer-reviewing, publishing and disseminating diverse products of
community-engaged scholarship that are in forms other than journal
articles (e.g. videos, training manuals, policy briefs, photo voice
exhibits and curricula). We encourage authors submitting proposals for
the CCPH conference to consider submitting products to CES4Health at
the same time. Products can be submitted at any time, but those
received by January 1, 2014 will have the greatest chance of completing
the peer review process in time to be published by CES4Health in time
for the conference. Please review the CES4Health instructions
for authors and submit products by completing the online
application. If you have questions about the suitability of a
submission, please contact CES4Health editor Cathy Jordan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CES4Health Fellow Marlynn May provides technical assistance, mentoring
and support to partnerships that have a potential CES4Health submission
and would like guidance in its development or in the submission
process. For assistance, email Marlynn at may@CES4Health.info.
Progress in Community Health
Research, Education and Action: Selected authors of accepted proposals
will be invited to submit papers for publication in this peer-reviewed
journal published by Johns Hopkins University Press. A scholarly
journal dedicated to community-based participatory research, PCHP seeks
to identify and publicize model programs that use community
partnerships to improve public health, promote progress in the methods
of research and education involving community health partnerships and
stimulate action that will improve the health of people and
communities. PCHP offers a substantial subscription discount to CCPH
members. For details, visit http://depts.washington.edu/ccph/books.html.
