Transfer of the SEEJPH to a new publisher


With the year 2023, our Southeastern European Journal of Public Health (SEEJPH) has been transferred from Jacobs Publishing House to the Netherlands Press, as the University of Bielefeld cannot host the Journal after the 31st of December 2022. The Journal’s design will be modernized, but the mission remains:

“The South Eastern European Journal of Public Health (SEEJPH) is an open-access international peer-reviewed journal involving all areas of health sciences and public health. Devoted to global health SEEJPH welcomes submissions of scientists, researchers, and practitioners from all over the world, but particularly pertinent to southern and eastern countries in transition.”

Professors Genc Burazeri and Ulrich Laaser will stay, respectively, as Executive and Founding Editors, and so will the Board of Editors, the Board of Regional Editors, the Advisory Editorial Board, and the Board of Emeritae and Emeriti. We have to thank our board members, authors, and readers for almost a decade of fullhearted and competent support and advice, as well as the Library of the University of Bielefeld, for the highly competent technical environment provided throughout these years.

In the interim period until the new website is effective, please, send any submissions directly to Prof. Genc Burazeri (, Prof. Ulrich Laaser ( or Dr Sampath Emani ( We shall ensure that your submissions are reviewed and published in due time.

We look forward to fruitful cooperation with the new publishing company and our global network!
