Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The broader environment is known generally to affect the survival, transmission and seasonality of water-borne, air-borne and vector-borne pathogens. However, very often the specific mechanisms through which environmental conditions modulate pathogen dynamics are little understood. A better characterization of these drivers of infectious disease transmission requires consideration of factors such as climate, meteorology, water and air chemistry, land use and agricultural practices, the built environment, the indoor environment, and sanitation practices, as well as synergies among these potential drivers.
For this special issue we invite submissions that examine the effects of these environmental determinants on disease system dynamics, including pathogen survival, vector survival, vector behavior, host survival, host immune function, host behavior, and modes of transmission. Implications for the control and prediction of infectious disease may also be addressed.

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).
