AUT's Public Health Bulletin

The Public’s Health, Inequalities and Social Justice
Issue 1, December 2014

AUT’s Public Health Bulletin is an online journal of the Department of Public Health at AUT’s School of Public Health and Psychosocial Studies. It provides a forum for staff, students and our networks to discuss key topics in public health. It includes discussion papers, book reviews, original research, and tools for policy makers, practitioners and researchers. We welcome not only written contributions but other media. All contributions are single-blind peer-reviewed.
This issue of the bulletin is on The Public’s Health: Inequalities & Social Justice. This is a timely and topical issue not only for New Zealand but for many parts of the world. As such there are numerous books, articles, and discussions on social media and TV. Here, public health staff and students living and working within the New Zealand and Asia-Pacific region draw on this theme to share their research with others.

The benefits of this publication include the following:  

  • It offers an accessible place for staff, students and other authors to publish short papers, working papers, position papers, or other media which they may go on to develop for international journal submission
  • It enables the community to share research and practice experience as widely as possible
  • Submissions will be peer reviewed and authors will receive excellent reviewer and editorial support
  • It represents our particular identity and contribution to public health in New Zealand and internationally.
