Working papers in the Health Sciences e journal is a diverse and emerging collection of papers which will evolve through your engagement and celebration of personal publications. WPHS seeks to provide a forum where practitioners, theorists, researchers, and lectures in this field can share their work with each other and with those from related disciplines.

Technical Overview
WPHS is published on the web using the SitePublisher publication system. We accept submissions in a wide range of formats, and host all accepted submissions that do not require dedicated software on the server, while providing links to any that do. Submissions in traditional academic formats (essays, articles, book reviews, bibliographies and so forth) are all accepted for review, but we also welcome innovative and experimental forms of scholarship and criticism. Our intent is to demonstrate and promulgate best practices in all individuals and as a Faculty as a whole, enabling Internet-wide access, while simultaneously encouraging approaches that continue to push the boundaries of the possible.
