About International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health
Aims and Scope
International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) (ISSN 1660-4601) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes, and short communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. It links several scientific disciplines including biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, ecology, engineering, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, oncology, pathology, pharmacology, and toxicology, in an integrated fashion, to address critical issues related to environmental quality and public health. Therefore, IJERPH focuses on the publication of scientific and technical information on the impacts of natural phenomena and anthropogenic factors on the quality of our environment, the interrelationships between environmental health and the quality of life, as well as the socio-cultural, political, economic, and legal considerations related to environmental stewardship, environmental medicine, and public health. As a comprehensive multi-disciplinary journal, IJERPH is comprised of nineteen major sections including the following:
- Children's Health
- Climate Change and Health
- Digital Health
- Ecology and the Environment
- Environmental Health
- Environmental Microbiology
- Environmental Science and Engineering
- Global Health
- Health Behavior, Chronic Disease and Health Promotion
- Health Care Sciences and Services
- Health Communication
- Health Economics
- Infectious Disease Epidemiology
- Mental Health
- Occupational Safety and Health
- Public Health Statistics and Risk Assessment
- Toxicology and Public Health
- Women's Health
- Exercise and Health
- Oral Health
The above-listed scientific sections cover critical areas of research discovery such as gene-environment interactions; global environmental health; ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessment and management; environmental chemistry and computational modeling; environmental education and public health; environmental engineering and technology; environmental epidemiology and disease control; environmental genomics and proteomics; environmental geology and health; environmental health and diseases; environmental medicine; environmental policy and stewardship; environmental toxicology, mutagenesis and carcinogenesis; health risk assessment and management; and natural resources damage assessment and management.
Therefore this international journal covers a broad spectrum of important topics which are relevant to environmental health sciences and public health protection. It provides comprehensive and unique information with a worldwide readership. Emphasizing holistic approach, the journal serves as a comprehensive and multidisciplinary platform, addressing important public health issues associated with environmental pollution and degradation. A large number of eminent professors and scientists from all over the world serve as section editors and/or guest reviewers for the journal.
