If you wish your article to be freely available online immediately upon publication (as some funding bodies now require), you can opt for it to be included in SAGE Choice upon payment of a publication fee. Manuscript submission and refereeing procedure is unchanged, but on acceptance of your article you will be asked to let SAGE know directly if you are choosing SAGE Choice.

If funding has been provided for your research, convention dictates that you acknowledge the source and grant information in the Acknowledgements section of your article. Please note that in some cases, grant funders require authors to attribute the funding source, describe the role of the study funding body and include the relevant grant reference numbers.

The Scandinavian Journal of Public Health is an international forum of Nordic as well as international public health research and policy. This peer-reviewed journal will be of interest to researchers and practitioners in academia, government and health care working in the fields of social medicine, epidemiology, public health, health services research and preventive medicine.

"The Public Health system in the Nordic countries is well known worldwide and the wealth of population based health registers provides unique research opportunities. Readers with an interest in public health systems and population based epidemiology should turn to the Scandinavian Journal of Public Health to keep track on what research is done and what research can be done." Jorn Olsen, Professor and Chair, Dept of Epidemiology, School of Public Health, UCLA, Los Angeles

"The Scandinavian Journal of Public Health is extremely useful for public health provisionals in many settings. Not only does it reflect the wide range of high quality research conducted in Scandinavian countries but frequently also reports on research in developing settings. The editorials often provide key discussion points for teaching public health and the in-depth insights of the supplements frequently address cutting edge issues in current public health thinking." Professor Krisela Steyn, Department of Medicine, University of Cape Town, South Africa.
