Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health

Call for Papers

Special Issue on Understudied Populations

Sexual and reproductive health services are most effective when tailored to the specific circumstances of particular populations. To that end, much research and programmatic effort has gone toward understanding the behaviors and service needs of teenagers, members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and socioeconomically disadvantaged men and women. Other groups, however, have received less attention: individuals with disabilities, incarcerated persons, homeless men and women, military personnel and transgender people, to name but a few. The December 2015 issue of Perspectives on Sexual and Reproductive Health will include a special section devoted to exploring the sexual and reproductive health needs of understudied populations—those mentioned above and others whose distinctive situations have been largely overlooked in the literature and in the policy and service arenas. We will consider original research and review articles (with a maximum length of 6,000 words), as well as commentaries (up to 3,500 words).
Deadline for submission is January 31, 2015.
