Populations including racial and ethnic minorities (e.g., African Americans, Asians, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Hispanics, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders), persons who are disadvantaged economically, underserved populations in rural communities, and sexual and gender minorities, all make up the health disparity populations (Alvidrez et al., 2019). Although much work has been dedicated to closing the health disparities gap, more laboring is needed as inequities have become not only a global public health problem (McCartney et al., 2019) but also have been handed down for centuries as a systemic and deep-rooted barrier to justful progress of mankind.</p> <p> </p> <p>For these reasons, adult and higher education professionals, health educators, mental health professionals, healthcare providers, and community-based organization service providers can develop a more nuanced and sophisticated understanding of what it means for disenfranchised individuals to experience health inequities and to identify unique methods for addressing these disparities. Therefore, this special issue on <strong>“Health Disparities among Minoritized Populations”</strong> aims to expand the conversation on health disparities among minoritized populations in a global context. This volume will bring together researchers to offer a multidimensional research lens for understanding and addressing the complexities of health disparities and promoting health equity. </p> <p> </p> <p>We seek a variety of articles that: </p> <ul> <li>Contains current research, theoretical issues, and literature reviews relevant to global, historical, and multidisciplinary health disparities.</li> <li>Offer thoughtful descriptions of innovative teaching, programming, and administration practices focused on global health disparities.</li> <li>The articles may also include, but not limited to the following specific areas:</li> <li>Selection of measurable indicators for monitoring health disparities in minoritized populations.</li> <li>Case studies on detecting health disparities in certain minoritized populations across geographic, socio-economic, or demographic factors.</li> <li>Theoretical models of studies on health disparities in minoritized populations</li> <li>Intervention models for alleviation or elimination of health disparities in minoritized populations.</li> </ul> <p><strong> </strong></p> <p><strong>Proposal Submission Guidelines:</strong></p> <p>Please email your proposal to the guest editors with the paper’s title, author(s), and abstract (within 200 words).

The Journal of Underrepresented &amp; Minority Progress (JUMP) is a refereed interdisciplinary publication (Print ISSN 2574-3465 &amp; Online ISSN 2574-3481) dedicated to the educational, economic, and social progress of minority and underrepresented communities around the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic also increased socioeconomic disparity and disproportionately affected economically disadvantaged groups (Flack et al., 2020; Khamijahani et al., 2021; Paul et al., 2021). The concept of intersectionality, which emphasizes the mutually constitutive nature of the racial, gendered, class, and sexual inequalities, has the potential to recognize and explain otherwise hidden forms of inequality (Hankivsky, 2022). Thus, “intersectionality” as both a theory and a method continues to evolve. This special issue, “Intersectionality: From Theory to Practice,” aims to deepen understanding of how intersectional perspectives are used in policy and practice. The volume seeks to bring together research on identities, experiences, and voices in the social, cultural, and political contexts of developed industrial nations. It will explore the efforts and limitations of using intersectional approaches to recognize and address the intersecting forms of marginalization that individuals and communities confront.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">This special issue aims to provide a platform for researchers and practitioners to present new findings and breakthroughs in intersectionality theory and practice. We invite paper submissions in three main categories: intersectionality as a theoretical concept, intersectional research as critical practice, and intersectional experience and underrepresented voices.
