Refereed Journals in Health Promotion *

"Refereed journals" are journals that use a peer-review process for vetting articles before accepting them for publication. 

Many journals offer an online archive of past articles. Often, however, more recent editions may be available only to subscribers or only for a fee. Students and faculty of UWW have access to many of these journals and articles both in print and online through our many journal databases. Using the Andersen Library Journal search tab, you can find out whether UWW Andersen Library subscribes to additional print or online journals you need.

Below are samples of refereed journals related to health promotion, with full-text available to UWW faculty and students.
