Call for papers on sexual health in the Caribbean

The editors of the journal Sexuality Research and Social Policy is requesting article submissions for a special issue on Sexual Health in the Caribbean.

This special issue is intended to showcase the work researchers are doing to address the multiple areas of sexual health in the Caribbean* and the Caribbean diaspora. We encourage authors to submit their work in the areas of sexuality education, sexual rights, social determinants of sexual health, sexual health promotion, HIV and other STIs, sexual diversities – including gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender groups, sexual dysfunctions, among others. We are particularly interested in papers that address the implications of sexual health research to inform policies. Submissions that advance the theoretical and methodological discussions of sexual health research and policy in the Caribbean region are also encouraged.

Authors are welcome to submit brief reports and full articles. An abstract of no more than 300 words should be submitted to Dr. Carlos E. Rodriguez-Diaz (carlos.rodriguez64@upr.edu ) guest editor for this issue, no later than June 15, 2012. If approved for publication after editorial review, full articles would be requested by October 1, 2012. As individual articles for this special issue are accepted, they will appear “Online First”.

This is an excellent opportunity for those working at the intersection of health/behavior change communication and sexual/reproductive health.
