The Duke Student Global Health Review is a student-run organization whose primary purpose is to publish a journal of student discourse on global health. The DSGH Review publishes an issue once per semester. The organization is formally independent of the Duke Global Health Institute. Student editors make all editorial and organizational decisions and carry out day-to-day operations.

Aside from serving as an academic forum for global health scholarship, the DSGH Review has two other goals. First, the journal is designed to be a representative of students’ viewpoints on various global health issues. Second, it provides opportunities for DSGH Review members to develop their own editing skills. Accordingly, each issue primarily contains pieces by outside authors.

The Review publishes articles only by undergraduate students and solicits commentaries from recognized global health experts and leaders. All articles — even those by the most respected authorities — are subjected to a rigorous editorial process designed to sharpen and strengthen substance and tone.
