The Public Health Law Research (PHLR) SciVal Community is a searchable database of expert public health law researchers and their peer-reviewed publications. The database is updated in real time as articles are published online in any one of the Scopus indexed journals.

Users of the Community site can explore researcher profiles, networks of collaborators and topics of interest across the spectrum of public health law research. The database is a convenient tool for users to discover existing and emerging evidence on laws and legal practices that improve health, to identify experts in the area and pursue new collaborations.

Users may search by concept or last name, or by using a “free search” option that can scan the database for keywords and phrases or full citations. The initial Community includes funded and published PHLR grantees and other researchers who have three or more PHLR publications. PHLR publications must be empirical and study the effect of laws or legal practices on population health.

The Community is still growing. If you consider yourself a public health law researcher and are not currently listed within the database, please let us know by emailing a CV to phlr@temple.edu.
