Special Issue Information
I am pleased to inform you that a Topical Collection on environmental factors, epigenetics, and cancer in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is being organized. For detailed information on the journal, please see:
While some cancers are inherited, most are thought to be due in large part to lifestyle and environmental exposures. However, it is not well understood how most of these factors affect cancer risk. It is known that epigenetic changes often occur in cancer development and that epigenetics can be responsive to environmental factors. Thus, epigenetics sits at the intersection of nature and nurture and can function as a molecular link between environmental exposures and cancer risk. The study of environmental factors, epigenetics, and cancer draws interest from researchers with diverse backgrounds, ranging from cancer epidemiologists and environmental health scientists to molecular biologists, and will have a significant impact on public health.
This Topical Collection is open to the collective subject area of environmental factors, epigenetics, and cancer. The keywords listed below provide an outline of some of the possible areas of interest.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind 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 semimonthly 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 2500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
