The International Journal of Men’s Social and Community Health (IJMSCH) is an interdisciplinary journal that aims to contribute to the advancement of men’s health by publishing high quality research, policy and practice papers of contemporary relevance. There is specific focus on health experiences, social context and on community-based approaches to maintaining or improving men’s and boy's health and wellbeing. The publication is the offical journal of the Global Action on Men's Health

Original papers addressing empirical, theoretical, and applied aspects of men’s health and wellbeing, as well as opinion pieces, critical reviews and studies analysing innovative intervention strategies, are all encouraged. IJMSCH is pleased to consider papers that address men’s experiences of ill-health but particularly seeks contributions that recognise the wider determinants of health and those that explore the relationships between gender and health for men. As such, it also welcomes submissions from sectors such as social care, education, employment and community networks providing the the relevance to men’s health and wellbeing is clear.
