Well-being and Health of People and Places
Granite Journal is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate and peer-reviewed journal, published open access (twice annually) by the University of Aberdeen. The Editorial Board is pleased to invite graduate students (Masters and PhD) to submit papers for consideration in our upcoming journal issue on the theme of Well-Being and Health of People and Places.
Well-being is challenging to define in a single word, but we can summon a long list of contributing factors: health, happiness, diversity, inclusivity, sustainability, fairness, accessibility, harmony, creativity… the list goes on.

Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
- Promoting good health and well-being
