Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electromagnetic fields (EMF) are ubiquitously distributed in our everyday environment. EMFs originate from numerous close-to-body sources, such as small electrical and communication devices, as well as various environmental sources, such as power lines and broadcast transmitters. Rapid developments and changes concerning EMF exposure, in particular in the radio and microwave frequency range, are a challenge for epidemiological research and risk assessment. Research needs in this field have been summarized by the World Health Organization (WHO) in their research agendas discussing extremely low frequency (ELF) and radiofrequency (RF) fields.

This issue aims to present recent advances in epidemiological research on EMF, with a special focus on the extremely low frequency (ELF), intermediate frequency (IF), and radiofrequency (RF) ranges. The issue welcomes papers addressing the health effects of different types of EMF. Further, innovative exposure assessment studies that contribute to a better understanding of a population’s exposure to close-to-body and environmental sources are highly welcome. Also, methodological work, including modeling, measurement or simulation studies, as well as novel approaches for risk assessments, are longed for. This Special Issue targets current developments in EMF epidemiology and provides a forum for cutting edge contributions to the literature.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
