The Lancet logo

One day changed the world.
We invite you to tell us how it changed health.

Call for papers

Deadline announcement - please submit your research before 31st March 2011.

The Lancet will dedicate a special issue in 2011 to September 11 - a decade on. We invite submissions (research articles, reviews, health policy papers, and viewpoints) that address the short-term and long-term physical, mental, and public health consequences of the events that took place (and continue to take place) in New York, Iraq, Afghanistan, or any other part of the world touched by September 11.

We are also interested in how the war on terrorism has affected the services, outcomes, policies, and regulations made in the fight against chronic and acute diseases, domestically and worldwide.
"2011 marks the tenth anniversary of this unprecedented domestic event with global implications...It will be a moment to reflect on how the world would have been different without September 11, 2001. It will be a time to think about what our nations have done right for human security and where they have made mistakes. It will be an opportunity to look forward, learning the lessons of the past decade."
- Richard Horton (Editor, The Lancet)
To respond to our call for papers, please submit your original research article or opinion piece via our online submission system, stating in your cover letter that the submission is in response to this call. The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011.
