The European Journal of Epidemiology is a monthly peer-reviewed medical journal covering the epidemiology of communicable and non-communicable diseases and their control. It is published by Springer Science+Business Media and the editor-in-chief is Albert Hofman (Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health). The journal was established in 1985 with Antiono Sanna as founding editor.[1]


Sanna served as editor for 6 years, until 1992. He was succeeded by Carlo Chezzi (1992–1994),[2] after which Claude Hannoun took over (1994–2002). Hannoun changed the direction of the journal, expanding the scope to include population health and non-communicable diseases.[3] Finally, Albert Hofman became editor in 2002.
