Special Issue Information
As a multidisciplinary approach, environmental toxicology covers a broad segment of toxicological studies, including risk assessment, regulatory toxicology, and environmental and human health exposure. Studies that assess the dangers of living organisms’ exposure to environmental pollutant/xenobiotics demonstrate the potential impact that these substances have on human health. The development of new assessment methods, approaches and model systems has advanced our understanding in this field. Outcomes from such studies not only scientifically explain the potential health hazards but also facilitate the development of preventive measures and policies for human health based on the acquisition and curation of public health informatics data. The recent COVID-19 outbreak has posed new challenges for public health assessment and management. The integration of machine learning, artificial intelligence, big data analysis, digital health technologies and epidemiological tools for outbreak surveillance, reporting and management has not only helped improve clinical decision support and critical care but also population-level health outcomes.
This issue of IJERPH aims to cover studies that concern risk assessment for human health hazards, including emerging environmental pollutants/xenobiotics using human population samples or any relevant in vivo or in vitro model system approaches. This issue also focuses on public health informatics-based approaches for epidemiological prediction, surveillance, data analysis, reporting and outbreak management. The research may also encompass the development of new and improved modeling-based approaches, AI, big data and machine learning for next-generation and community medicine.
In this Special Issue, we invite researchers in the field of toxicology (including environmental toxicology and regulatory toxicology), public health, information technology and epidemiology, as well as healthcare professionals, clinicians, data scientists and policymakers, among others, to submit original research articles, systematic reviews, mini-reviews, letters and communication or opinion pieces related to the proposed focus areas.

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.
