The Lancet Planetary Health is a gold Open Access journal that aims to establish and grow an entirely new field of scientific inquiry—namely, to investigate and provide solutions to the political, economic, social, and environmental determinants of healthy human civilisations and the natural systems on which they depend.
In a new and urgent era of sustainable development, The Lancet Planetary Health seeks to be the pre-eminent journal for inquiry into sustainable human civilisations at a time when those civilisations face unprecedented dangers and threats. The scope of the journal is therefore wide and interdisciplinary, and includes poverty, nutrition, gender equity, water and sanitation, energy, economic growth, industrialisation, inequality, urbanisation, human consumption and production, climate change, ocean health, land use, peace, and justice. Put simply, The Lancet Planetary Health aims to be the leading journal of, and for, sustainable development. To meet these ambitious objectives, the journal is committed to publishing high-quality research, comment, and correspondence.
In keeping with other journals in the Lancet family, The Lancet Planetary Health offers rapid publication online within 8–12 weeks from submission. The journal is indexed in the DOAJ, MEDLINE/PubMed, and Scopus.Submissions are subjected to The Lancet's usual rigorous standards of external and statistical peer review, and are edited by experienced copy editors to the highest standards. All original research remains the property of the author, and reuse by others is permitted under either CC BY or CC BY-NC-ND Creative Commons licences, depending on authors' preferences or funding bodies' mandates.
