Women’s Health – Open Journal [ISSN 2380-3940]: Empowering Women, Amplifying Knowledge

Championing Women’s Well-being

Women’s Health – Open Journal (WHOJ) stands as a beacon of information and support for women’s health, delving into common health concerns, psychological experiences, and the social realities that shape female well-being. We explore topics like menstruation, contraception, maternal health, childbirth, menopause, and breast cancer, tackling both biological complexities and societal challenges.

Breaking Silences, Fostering Awareness

We refuse to let social stigmas silence vital conversations. WHOJ shines a light on issues like sexual education, contraception access, abortion rights, and gender discrimination, fostering open dialogue and promoting informed choices. By recognizing gender as a social determinant of health, we advocate for equitable healthcare and social justice for all women.

Rigorous Research, Open Access

Our esteemed editorial and review board members, dedicated experts in diverse fields, ensure the highest standards of scientific accuracy and practical relevance in every published piece. Through open access, we freely share cutting-edge research and insights, empowering healthcare professionals, policymakers, and women themselves to advocate for better health outcomes.

Our Commitment to DEIAC

At Openventio, we are committed to promoting Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Capacity (DEIAC) in all aspects of our publication. We believe that DEIAC is essential for advancing scientific knowledge and improving health outcomes for all. We strive to create a publication environment that is open, fair, respectful, and representative of the diversity of the scholarly community and society at large. We adhere to the Principles of Transparency and Best Practices in Scholarly Publishing and follow the guidance and recommendations from various resources on DEIAC in scholarly publishing. We welcome and support the participation and contribution of authors, editors, reviewers, and readers from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. We also monitor and evaluate the impact and effectiveness of our DEIAC policies and practices, and seek to continuously improve them.

Join the Conversation, Shape the Future

WHOJ welcomes diverse voices and perspectives. Share your research, experiences, and questions. Together, we can build a future where women have access to the knowledge, resources, and support they need to thrive.
