The management of SIER, in consultation with the scientific advisory board of the journal, has decided to open another topic area for publications. This new topic area covers all general medical topics, such as public health, medicine and biochemistry. Due to the increased demand for publication opportunities in this area, the section has been staffed with its own specialised reviewers and thus opened up for future peer-reviewed publications. In the long term, the Public Health section will be transferred by the publisher into a journal of its own, insofar as there is a consistently high demand for public health publications.
