A Special Issue on Digital Health Interventions in Everyday Settings is being organised in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

Digitalisation (the integration of digital platforms such as computers, mobile phones or websites) is everywhere and it is changing our everyday lives in many ways. Our health promotion practice and research are also influenced by digital, electronic (eHealth) and mobile (mHealth) technologies (for example devices, apps, gamification, etc.). Many interventions nowadays include e- and mHealth approaches to improve physical and mental health or promote healthy behaviours. Some interventions are simply being deliverd via the Internet or smartphones, which are ubiquitously present in modern societies. Digital health interventions occur in various settings of daily life, for example health care, communities, neighbourhoods, workplaces, schools, and universities. This Special Issue will bring together the latest research on digital approaches used in health promotion research in daily settings.
Both empirical papers and systematic literature reviews will be considered. Manuscripts describing the development, (cost-)effectiveness or process evaluation, implementation, dissemination or translation of digital health interventions are welcomed. Papers on the outcomes of innovative digital health interventions are especially encouraged.
