Mission Statement

American Journal of Health Studies (AJHS) publishes feature articles and commentaries on the history, principles and philosophy of the practice of health education and health promotion.  Manuscripts submitted to AJHS must fit within this area of emphasis and focus on the process of health education and the historical and philosophical concerns that influence the practice of health education and health promotion.  The process of health education and health promotion is reflected in the responsibilities and competencies for a Certified Health Education Specialist (www.nchec.org).  Some topics of interest for AJHS include, but are not limited to: 

  • Historical events and markers in health education and health promotion
  • Philosophical underpinnings of the profession
  • Health behavior theory related to health education and health promotion
  • Planning models and protocol (PRECEDE/PROCEED, PATCH, CBPR, etc.)
  • Program evaluation protocol and methodology
  • Advocacy for health education and health promotion
  • Marketing and social marketing activities in health education and health promotion
  • Professional preparation of health education and health promotion specialists
  • Governmental and legislative influences on health education and health promotion 

 The AJHS is closely linked to the Virtual Academy: A Living History of Health Education project.  The Virtual Academy is a digital archive of the thoughts of key leaders in the field of health education and health promotion.
