Jason F. Arnold, director of strategic projects at NYU College of Global Public Health, has been invited to join the editorial board of the Journal of Global Health Leadership (JOGHL), a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that provides a forum for disseminating international research on global health.
JOGHL’s mission is to advance scientific knowledge through an exchange of ideas that focus on finding solutions to the medical problems facing the developing world. The journal publishes materials from a wide range of disciplines, such as medicine, public health, nursing, dentistry, law, and ethics. Editorial content originates from professions concerned with clinical practice, physical and mental health, health care policy, and organization management.
As an editor of the journal, Mr. Arnold will provide opinions on editorial decisions regarding manuscripts and their revisions. He will also be responsible for providing advice, support, and criticism to help fulfill the mission of the journal. During the three-year appointment, Mr. Arnold will be asked to share his views and ideas for improvement of the journal, as well as identify other experts in the field who are well-qualified to review manuscripts.
“I am really looking forward to serving on the editorial board of the Journal of Global Health Leadership and supporting its mission. Being an editor presents an exciting opportunity to expand academic scholarship in the field of global health by examining the legal and ethical challenges of delivering health care to low- and middle-income countries,” he said.
Mr. Arnold is an attorney who has been working and publishing in the field of bioethics for over twenty years. In addition to his work at NYU, he also serves as a member of the Clinical Research Ethics Consultation Collaborative, which is a national network of bioethicists who provide advice on ethical challenges encountered while conducting research. Mr. Arnold has also served as an ad-hoc reviewer for several other academic journals, and has published numerous peer-reviewed articles as a lead author. His current research focuses on the ethical issues of collecting biometric data through the use of wearable technologies, as well as studying the myriad of issues opioids pose to patients suffering from chronic pain. Mr. Arnold’s most recent article (“Authorship Trends in Global Health Journals: The Need for More Scholarship on Ethics”) was recently published in JOGHL, and can be accessed here.
