My Healthy Community

     Coronavirus (COVID-19) Data Dashboard
     A resource of COVID-19 data and facts for Delaware families
    and communities.

     My Healthy Community
     A resource from the State of Delaware that provides
    community-level statistics and data that can be used to
    understand and explore health and related factors that
    influence health.
Our health and the environment in which we
    live are inherently connected. Together, communities can use
    data to inform place-based approaches, support, and facilitate
    data-informed discussions that describe and define population
    health priorities, and leverage data to transform communities
                                                                         by educating them about their community's health and the
                                                                         environment in which they live.

Delaware Journal of Public Health


The Delaware Journal of Public Health is published five times per year, and is the signature peer-reviewed journal of the Academy/DPHA. The DJPH is an electronic-only publication, produced to be platform-agnostic (visible on any device with any operating system as long as it has internet access), and dynamic with links out to other resources.  Unlike a hardcopy publication, the DJPH can connect directly to other resources, studies, events, etc. as determined by the authors.  We believe this model is in keeping with the times and patterns of access by our readership.  It is also eco-friendly, and respects limited resources.

Psychiatric Research and Clinical Practice

Psychiatric Research and Clinical Practice (PRCP) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal from the American Psychiatric Association that offers a high-profile publishing destination for submissions that build upon the psychiatric knowledge base and bring research findings closer to clinical utility through deeper investigation.

PRCP seeks to occupy that place between research and clinical utility, leaning toward clinical utility through publication of replication studies and features that show how new scientific knowledge can inform clinical practice. PRCP maintains the rigorous standards of APA’s scholarly publications while providing an essential resource for today’s practicing physicians.

Published in accordance with open-access principles, PRCP makes all of its content immediately available for free.
