CALL FOR PAPERS: “Health Communication in the New Asia” : A special issue of the Asian Journal of Communication

The Asian Journal of Communication is publishing an international special issue on health communication in the new Asia.

Guest editors for this special issue are Associate Professor May Lwin and Professor Charles T. Salmon, both of the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

In the past five decades, many Asian countries have witnessed rapid urbanization and economic growth.  Challenges to public health have multiplied beyond developmental and rural contexts to suburban, urban and migratory landscapes.  We are seeking manuscripts which focus on how health communication has and can continue to play a role in addressing the multiple health challenges facing Asia in the 21st century.

Possible sub-themes for the special issue include, but are not limited to these topics within the Asian landscape:
  • Health communication theory and practice for the promotion of health
  • Health education and practice
  • Enhancing patient communication
  • Public and health crisis communication
  • Children and adolescent health challenges and solutions
  • Changing lifestyles and community health concerns
  • Elderly populations
  • Rural-urban migration and the mitigating role of heath communication
  • Cross-cultural health communication issues
Manuscripts submitted should not exceed 23 pages (double space, Times New Roman, Font Size 12), inclusive of tables, figures, and appendices.

Manuscript deadline is December 15, 2013.  Please refer to the Asian Journal of Communication website for manuscript submission guidelines.
