Editorial Process

Public Health Post is a daily population health magazine written by public health students and edited by experts.

Our mission is to spotlight critical intersections in public health and social justice to advance conversations about health in urban and rural communities across the United States.

Our original articles

Every day, we feature population health stories that break down recent academic research, explain data graphics, or present original interviews with leading voices in the field. Our stories are produced by a small cohort of Boston University School of Public Health MPH students undergoing a rigorous, year-long communications fellowship. PHP Fellows choose the topics they cover, and often focus on populations, communities, and locations of personal interest to them.

  • Each story goes through a multi-draft process with several rounds of edits under the direction of our editorial team, made up of professional editors and academics. We follow journalistic best practices, standards, and ethics as outlined by the Institute for Nonprofit News.
  • Public Health Post is editorially independent from Boston University. The publication is funded by BU and benefits from University resources but does not provide preferential coverage to individuals or research affiliated with the University.
  • Our articles are available to republish for free with permission. If you are interested in republishing an article, please email phpost@bu.edu to learn more.

We also invite guest authors from a variety backgrounds, including academia and government, to share their work and insights with our audience. We welcome pitches from academics, journalists, and students wishing to share their work with a broader audience. Email us at phpost@bu.edu to learn more.
