Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Noise pollution is prevailing in our daily living environments. In addition to exposure to road traffic, railway, and aircraft noise, a greater intensity of noise exposure has been identified in the workplace. Increasing numbers of studies have reported the associations between noise exposure and adverse health outcomes though both the direct and indirect pathways to affect the auditory, sympathetic, endocrine, and immune systems. Challenges remain to be investigated further, including interaction of co-exposure to air pollutants in the atmosphere, the various effects of noise frequency spectrum, and new potential risks of noise pollution.

With this Special Issue, we invite you to submit high-quality original research articles or reviews that provide solid new findings to extend the current knowledge. Both observational studies and experimental/intervention designs are preferred except subjects only involving susceptible participants. All manuscripts will be reviewed by panels of experts in the field, and would be due no later than the end of March 2018.
