Intersections: The Education Journal of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center is a peer-reviewed journal that serves as a dynamic resource for the Woodruff Health Sciences Center and the entire Emory University community by 1) providing a forum for dissemination of health sciences related educational scholarship in all of its forms, 2) supporting a diverse cadre of health science educators in refining their scholarship, writing and reviewing skills, 3) contributing to the evidence base for best teaching and learning practices across disciplines and educational settings, and 4) elevating the stature of health science educators and educational scholarship at Emory.
In so doing, the journal is committed to providing a platform for recognizing diverse voices and viewpoints and supporting educational approaches to achieve an inclusive, equitable, and diverse healthcare, health sciences, and public health workforce. The journal is published on a rolling basis in collaboration with the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship and with the financial support of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center.
Journal content includes pieces that represent all four types of scholarship as defined by Ernest Boyer: the scholarship of discovery, the scholarship of teaching and learning, the scholarship of application and the scholarship of integration. We welcome work from any member of the Woodruff Health Sciences Center including faculty, staff, students, trainees, and educators from Emory Healthcare and its affiliated hospitals and clinical sites. We also accept submissions from others in the Emory University community who teach about health or healthcare.
In order to enrich the educational milieu of the health sciences center, the editorial staff is committed to producing a journal in which every published piece includes information that is applicable to educators across professions, schools, programs, and work sites. We are further committed to working closely with authors and reviewers to strengthen their skills, thereby increasing the overall capacity of health sciences educators at Emory to conduct and disseminate educational scholarship.
Intersections aims to foster inclusive scholarship that reflects the disciplinary, human, and professional diversity of the community. Submissions are welcomed from applicants of all ethnicities, races, colors, religions, sexes, sexual orientations, gender identities, national origins, disabilities, ages, or other individual status. We are committed to eliminating the influence of bias in our editorial and review processes and continually work toward identifying and implementing best practices for scientific publishing.
Intersections is freely available to individuals and institutions and charges no fees for author submissions.
