Supported by our publisher Elsevier, the RSPH journals Public Health and Public Health in Practice were represented at the congress with a virtual booth in the exhibition centre where our Joint Editor in Chief, Dr Jo Morling and Editorial Officer, Melissa Davis were available on the live chat to interact with delegates and potential authors and reviewers.

Throughout the conference, representatives from the journals attended various talks chosen from the vast timetable of plenary sessions, world leadership dialogues, workshops and oral presentations. These covered many topics of interest to the journals including healthy neighbourhoods and urban health, anti-microbial resistance, sustainable development goals, health systems fit for the future and health systems and climate change.

This is just one of the many new virtual experiences currently helping the RSPH to keep up to date in the international public health arena.
