The aim of the Planetary Health specialty section is to provide a space to explore, characterise and report on the dependencies between human health and the integrity of natural systems. Our intention is to make active and critical contributions to the science and policy discourses that must underpin a global transformation towards sustainable health security and environmental stewardship. Our remit is guided by the visions and challenges of numerous global and local frameworks (e.g., Sustainable Development Goals, Paris Agreement, Aichi Biodiversity Targets, Sendai Framework) seeking to reorient the trajectory of humanity for a safer, healthier future.
We welcome submissions covering any topic consistent with this vision, including but not limited to: climate change, land-use, biodiversity, natural capital and ecosystem services, biochemical cycles, atmospheric processes, pollution, oceans, water quality and security, food systems and nutrition, built environments, energy provision and technology as they relate to human health and wellbeing.
Please refer to the author guidelines for details on article types and the submission process.

All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Planetary Health, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Planetary Health will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Public Health.
