Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health will be devoted to digital wellness. A more nuanced understanding of how the digital world impacts on our physical, psychological and social health is of critical importance if we are to make the most of the opportunities afforded by digital technology while minimizing negative consequences. This Special Issue will add to the knowledge base and advance our international understanding of digital wellness within research and practice across the globe.
A broad range of studies on digital wellness and wellbeing will be considered for inclusion in the Special Issue. We encourage you to submit original, empirical studies as well as systematic reviews or meta-analyses. Short reports and methodological papers will also be considered. Especially, we encourage the submission of interdisciplinary work and multi-country collaborative research.
