Section Information

The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. The subsection of Occupational Safety and Health will focus on safety and health in workplaces from a global perspective.

In-depth, original articles and systematic reviews concerning occupational medicine that are up-to-date with new medical developments in the prevention, diagnosis, and rehabilitation of work-related injuries and illnesses are welcome. Additionally, this section will consider toxicological investigations both in in vitro and in vivo models, focused on defining early effects and modes of action, also through innovative analytical techniques, of workplace xenobiotics, including chemicals at the nanoscale.
