Salud Colectiva is a triannual, peer-reviewed journal published by the Universidad Nacional de Lanús. The journal's objective is to publish original articles in Spanish which contribute to the study of the health-disease-care process. The journal seeks to create an editorial framework for critical thought about the social realm, based in Open Access, multidisciplinary study, and a commitment to scientific and methodological rigor (to learn more about our editorial policies see Guidelines for Authors).

Salud Colectiva forms part of the  Núcleo Básico de Revistas Científicas Argentinas, of the  Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET), due to the quality of its contents and editorial process. The journal has also been evaluated by many international academic organizations with highly positive results, and is therefore presently indexed in over 15 databases (see Indexing Services). We invite you to explore the journal’s Spanish webpage as well.  

Salud Colectiva English Edition is a new project made possible by an interdepartmental agreement signed in 2011 between the Bachelor’s Program in Sworn Translation in English Language and the Institute of Collective Health of the Universidad Nacional de Lanús. This Edition seeks to make available in English material previously published by the journal in Spanish. All of the contents of Salud Colectiva English Edition will be published electronically and will be available in Open Access both at the journal’s website and in the various databases and indexing services in which the journal is found.  

In December 2012, Salud Colectiva was accepted into the MEDLINE database. MEDLINE is the primary bibliographic database of the U.S. Nacional Library of Medicine (NLM), whose contents are made available through the PubMEd platform.
In 2012 alone 314,940 Salud Colectiva articles were downloaded from SciELO Argentina, SciELO Public Health, Redalyc and the journal's website at the Universidad Nacional de Lanús.
The journal was accessed in these four portals 336,185 times total in 2012; therefore, the number of article downloads represents 93.7% of the total number of visits [see graphics].
