This is the first issue of a new journal concerning the impact of cultural, social, and behavioral forces on mortality and health. It is scheduled for publication twice a year. "We anticipate publishing research findings on how the impact on health is actually achieved, and how induced social and behavioural changes can improve health. We welcome theoretical explorations of the health transition field, methodological contributions, review articles and studies of the cultural, social and behavioural contributions to historical mortality or morbidity declines. To foster debate we encourage critical comments on our published articles and short notes on controversial topics."
