paper description
In order to assess the differences between articles about public health published in national vs. international journals, we undertook a comparison of quantitative analysis methodologies and topics for five indexed journals (3 international, 2 national) during 1991-2005. A total of 2511 articles were reviewed from: European Journal of Public Health, American Journal of Public Health, Cuadernos de Saúde Pública, Revista Nacional de Salud Pública and Revista de la Facultad Nacional de Salud Pública. International journals employed quantitative analysis techniques with more innovation and use of multivariate analysis than those employed by national journals. More reviews were found in the latter. Frequent topics for national journals included: child health, mental health, infectious diseases, zoonosis, sanitation, and health systems and policy. Frequent subjects for international journals included: social determinants, chronic disease and cancer. Both types of journals include local topics. We concluded that lack of multivariate techniques in national articles becomes a barrier for publication in international journals.
