Special Issue “Social Networks and Health” deadline

  • October 31, 2018 • 11:59 PM – 11:59 PM

We would like to invite papers to this Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, which will explore the application of Social Network Analysis (SNA) to applied health research. We welcome the submission of theoretical, methodological, empirical, and review papers using a range of social network methodologies and with clear implications for policy. We are particularly interested in research using mixed methods and ego-net analysis. Some of the themes that the papers could address include:

  • Health and well-being
  • Illness management in everyday life
  • Online and offline personal communities
  • Changing health behaviours and social practice
  • Interactions between healthcare, social care, and community support
  • Public policy and enabling environments
  • New technologies and changes in healthcare delivery
  • Development, implementation and evaluation of interventions
