The Duke Student Global Health Review, Duke’s premier global health journal, is soliciting 150-word article pitches and accepting full-length submissions!

The Review accepts content pertaining to Global Health that fit into the following categories:


All essays related to global health will be considered. Acceptable submissions range from analytical essays to perspective pieces to personal reflections on summer experiences (i.e. DukeEngage). The mission of DGHR is to create an open forum for global health discourse, and thought-provoking essays are among the best ways to do so.

Global Health Projects

Papers concerning any type of global health project are welcome. These projects do not have to be experimental in nature: program evaluations and project reflections will be accepted. Projects done through Duke Global Health SRT, Duke Bass Connections, and student organizations are especially encouraged to apply for publication.

Recent Review

Commentary papers on a broad range of topics relevant to global health are welcome. The content must be original, and it must contribute a new perspective on a recent development in global health. These recent reviews aim to contribute to the forefront of global health discourse.
