The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH, ISSN: 1660-4601) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access journal published semimonthly online by MDPI. It covers Environmental Sciences and Engineering, Public Health, Environmental Health, Occupational Hygiene, Health Economic and Global Health Research, etc. The journal is indexed within Scopus, SCIE and SSCI (Web of Science), PubMed, MEDLINE, PMC, Embase, GEOBASE, CAPlus / SciFinder, and other databases. For more details, please see the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph/about.

The IJERPH editorial team is pleased to announce this open call for Special Issue proposals, which offers a group of authors the opportunity to work on an interconnected set of papers on an innovative topic. We are soliciting high-quality proposals that will be evaluated in a continuous selection process throughout the year.

If you would like to propose a Special Issue topic for this journal, please contact the IJERPH Editorial Office ([email protected]) or complete and submit the form at the following link: https://www.mdpi.com/journalproposal/sendproposalspecialissue/ijerph. Our editors will respond to you as soon as possible.

The duties of acting as a Guest Editor are as follows:

  • Refining the Special Issue title and scope, and providing a short introduction (100–200 words) and 5–10 keywords to set up the Special Issue website;
  • Inviting contributors with the assistance of the In-House Editor to achieve a publication target (e.g., 10 papers);
  • Supervising the peer review process of this Special Issue, conduct a pre-review check, make final decisions based on at least two review reports that we have collected, etc.

The benefits of acting as a Guest Editor are as follows:

  • As the Guest Editor, you will be offered an opportunity to publish one of your papers free of charge in open access form, and the chance to provide discounts to the papers that you invited for your Special Issue;
  • A printed book of the Special Issue can be sent to you if more than 10 papers are published by the end of the Special Issue. See an example at https://www.mdpi.com/books/pdfview/book/1209;
  • It is an ideal venue for networking and communication with scholars in the research community, as well as a chance to mark you as influential within your discipline. The relationships you develop will last beyond the publication of your Special Issue, establishing a network for future collaboration.

The Editorial Office will set up the Special Issue’s website, arrange the promotional materials, assist with the invitations for paper contributions, and take care of the administrative tasks associated with peer review (including inviting reviewers, collating reports, contacting authors, and arranging professional production before publication).

Please do not hesitate to contact the Editorial Office ([email protected]) for further details and clarification.

We look forward to receiving your proposals.
