Publishing Resources

One aim of the CommonHealth Editorial Board is to encourage student participation and membership from each of the college’s departments in all phases of the publishing process. These aims align with CPH's mission to promote transdisciplinary collaboration and develop the next generation of leaders in research, scholarship, service and innovation. There is a recognized need for shared governance with students so that the administration of the journal can serve as a training opportunity as well. The resources listed below are intended to assist students, staff and faculty with publishing their work in this and other journals.
