Special Issue on Mathematics for Public Health

Published 07 April, 2018

In honor of a pioneer of mathematical epidemiology, Karl Hadeler, who passed away on February 3, 2017, we are guest editing a special issue Mathematics for Public Health for Infectious Disease Modelling, a peer-reviewed open access journal that aims to promote research working to interface mathematical modelling, infection disease data retrieval and analysis, and public health decision support.

In consistent with the scope of the journal and in consideration your contribution in the subject area, we invite your submission to this special issue in the following categories:

  • original research articles contributing to the enhancement of this interface;
  • review articles of cutting edge methodologies motivated by and applicable to data collection and informatics for public health decision making and policy;
  • position articles that propose challenges for novel mathematical formulation and analysis to address important infectious disease prevention and control issues.

You can submit your work directly through the journal's online submission system and choosing the special issue. Review processes will be normally complete within two weeks after the submission, and all accepted papers will appear first on-line shortly after the acceptance. These papers will be first published as a regular article in the journal, and all accepted papers will be collected in the special issue by the end of 2018. The special issue will be featured in the journal and will be promoted by the publisher through ScienceDirect. Publications invited for the special issue will be free of charge. There will some hard copies of the special issue for each correspondence author, for the promotion of the journal, and for part of the global activities in honor of Professor Karl Hadeler.

We believe this will be an important contribution to the growing strong field of mathematical epidemiology, and we invite your kindly considering submitting your work to this contribution.
