The texts will be published in The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association under the heading "Perspectives" as part of the journal's opinion section (please note that original articles could also be submitted). Authors (or a lead author) should be affiliated to a Norwegian institution.

UPDATE: We encourage all authors to submit articles in English.

The manuscripts can be submitted in English or a Scandinavian language, although we encourage authors to submit in English as that will be the language of the published paper. Articles submitted in a Scandinavian language will be translated after acceptance. We open for online publication from February-November 2017, and all accepted texts will be published online and in print as they emerge.

A selection of the articles will be published in a special print issue of Tidsskriftet at the end of 2017.

Expression of interest

All authors are free to submit their articles to the 'Tidsskriftet'. However, to be considered for submission in this call (‘Global Health in the Era of Agenda 2030’), please submit a title and a short summary (1/2 page) to the Secretariat by January 31st 2017. The Secretariat will inform the author(s) if the suggestion is within the scope of the call.


The manuscripts shall then be submitted to Tidsskriftet using the journal's standard submission procedure (please see instructions for authors), marking the manuscript as part of the call (‘Global Health in the Era of Agenda 2030’). Tidsskriftet will accept or reject submitted papers following their standard editorial procedures, while consulting the secretariat on whether the manuscripts are suitable for the series. The final decision on whether the papers will be included in the special printed edition will be made by the secretariat in collaboration with Tidsskriftet.
