About the Site

The Philippine Journal of Health Research and Development (PJHRD) (formerly the UP Manila Journal) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that aims to publish researches with a broad scope covering all aspects of environmental and human health.

It is envisaged to become a pre-eminent peer reviewed journal for health research in the Western Pacific Region. This international journal aims to reach broader readership and provide easy access to high-quality articles from multiple disciplines that include but are not limited to the allied health sciences, such as rehabilitation sciences, dental medicine, nursing and health care, pharmacy and natural products, food science and nutrition, ecotoxicology, health informatics, public and environmental health, as well as the health social sciences, health profession education, health policy and governance.

Systematic reviews, original research, and case reports will be accepted. Special focus will be given to research that reflects collaboration among different disciplines and that addresses areas in the National Unified Health Research Agenda (NUHRA) 2011-2016.

The Editorial Board will endeavour to consistently publish work that is of cogent methodology and that makes an important contribution to scientific knowledge.
