    • Use of epidemiological research methods in non-medical settings (e.g. criminology)
    • Causal inference in epidemiology
    • Applications of new technologies in field studies (e.g. mobile technologies, pattern recognition techniques, social networking tools)
    • Ethical issues in epidemiological research
    • New statistical methods, or novel uses of existing methods, in epidemiological studies
    • Methodological developments in molecular and genetic epidemiology and novel applications in these areas
    • Historical articles and re-assessments of classic papers

The journal considers the following types of article for publication: research papers, analytic perspectives, commentaries, debate articles, hypotheses, methodology articles, reviews.
