Common Public Health Journals

These are some of the journals that publish public health topics. They are peer reviewed and may use either APA or AMA style. 

When you search for articles in a database such as PubMed, you may find one of these. Be aware that this is not a comprehensive list of all journals that publish on public health topics. Due to the wide interdisciplinary nature of public health there are many more.
