In the current global legal and political landscape, this is a critical time for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR). For 30 years, the Sexual and Reproductive Health Matters Journal (SRHM) has played a key role in the field, with a long-time, trusted reputation. It is the only independent, peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary scientific journal that has been intrinsically connected to the SRHR movement. It has systematically provided mentorship and support for young researchers and SRHR practitioners especially in the Global South. It is also unique in that it has published in multiple languages with regional editors and has offered a space to a truly global network of SRHR researchers, policy makers, program managers, lawyers and activists in the field of SRHR.
The SRHM Journal has never been needed more to help drive evidence into action and work towards a world in which SRHR are recognized as fundamental human rights and matters of social justice. An exciting strategic plan for the next 5 years has been finalized to further the journal’s mission. However, without additional resources , journal publication will not be able to continue.
The closure of the SRHM Journal would mean that the SRHR movement would lose an important, trusted knowledge platform grounded in human rights and evidence. The journal’s publishing team is still fundraising for the continuation of the SRHM Journal, and is also putting out this Call for an Expression of interest.
If you, your organization or your contacts have an interest in saving or taking over this politically and scientifically indispensable Journal in the field of SRHR, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 31 July.
Expressions of interest for taking over the Journal should include the following: details about your organization, the organizational ability and financial support that you can provide for the independent running of the Journal for at least two subsequent years, and an operational plan for how you would run the Journal. Submissions should not be longer than two pages. Please note that the Journal is currently published with Taylor and Francis.
