Dear ICPHR Members,
PartKommPlus – German Research Consortium for Health Communities is editing a special edition of the online multi-lingual journal Forum Qualitative Social Research (FQS) on the topic of Methods in Participatory Health Research. Susanne Hartung, myself and Tina Cook are the editors. We are looking for submissions in English. Deadline for abstracts is July 15th (see the PDF file below).
In collaboration with Springer Publishers, 'Participatory Health Research - Voices from Around the World' provides an overview of participatory health research from an international perspective, based on the work of the International Collaboration for Participatory Health Research (ICPHR).

A new version of the ICPHR Position Paper #1 has been recently published in Portuguese titled "O QUE É A PESQUISA-AÇÃO PARTICIPATIVA EM SAÚDE". This new position paper is available for download under our Resources page.
Dear ICPHR members and friends,
I have been thinking about ways we can capitalise on work each of us is already doing in building a strong evidence base in all areas of PHR. One area that often goes underappreciated is the richness of work our graduate students do in preparing literature reviews for their masters and doctoral theses.
These reviews often go unpublished, despite being valuable syntheses of the knowledge in each specialised corner of the PHR world where the student’s research is focussed.
We would like, therefore, to give you and your students the opportunity to publish thesis lit review chapters on the ICPHR website. This would archive and make them publicly available, while building a categorised database of valuable knowledge. THE REVIEWS CAN BE IN ANY LANGUAGE!
We are looking for lit reviews/syntheses that specifically pertain to the participatory process. I.e., not the general review on the thesis topic such as “the state of the literature in home care nursing,” but yes to “the use of participatory engagement methods in improving home care nursing.” So this might be a portion of the overall review.
Once published on the ICPHR website, you and your students would retain copyright and would be free to submit your reviews to journals for publication. Many major journals (such as Milbank Quarterly, for example) allow you to leave the original pre-submission version of your work on the website, as long as you direct the readers to the final published version as well. Otherwise you are always free to remove the review from the ICPHR site and later replace it with the final published version.
If you are interested in pursuing this, please feel free to contact me (email@example.com) or simply send on your lit review section for posting.
