In this section we are looking for informational pieces worthy to share and maybe to discuss! We are looking for opinions, which could be of current and pressing issues or something that you’ve been thinking about and want to share. Also in this section, you may provide original research about a given topic or you may comment on an existing research finding that you’ve read about. We will be accepting case reports in this section for health care and mental healthcare workers who want to publish their cases in order to teach or to share important findings.
- Submit your unique thoughts or your commentary on contemporary or historical issues that you find significant. Most importantly, we want opinions and commentary on subjects that may link the humanities and human health. Do not be discouraged and think that the opinion you give must include topics in health! Anything that is enriching to the human spirit may fit this criteria. Whether it is an opinion on a historical figure, or a commentary on a current health topic, or a sharing of your taste in classical music, all of these things can creatively fit into the criteria of “linking humanities and human health”. We want to break the divide between humanities and health, as they are two disciplines that explain the human experience. (Keep submission below 750 words)
- This is for students and scholars alike! Do you do research in a subject related to human sciences, literature, history, public health, etc… If you do, and want to submit your research project, or an abstract, or a poster presentation, this is the place to do so. It will likely reach an audience that a scholarly journal may not! And best of all, it will be freely available online. It would be nice to get some anthropological research on here… (Keep submission below 1500 words)
- Submit your case reports here! Physicians and other clinicians (physician assistants, psychologists, social workers, etc…) this is the section for you. Submit your formulated cases, while respecting patient anonymity and privacy. This is where you can share your thought process and interesting cases for free. For a case to be accepted, we do not need it to be of a rare ailment, but there has to be a creative component to the style it is written in. It should include the case presentation, and a conclusion that relays the creative and/or thought process and emotions of the writer. (Keep submission below 750 words)
