I am organizing a Special Issue on “Transportation-Related Air Pollution and Human Health” for the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This journal is peer-reviewed and publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, I would refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
It is now well established that living near major roadways and highways is associated with increased risk of a range of adverse health outcomes including cardiovascular disease, respiratory illnesses and neurological problems. Accordingly, research is focused increasingly on which pollutants in the environment near transportation are most responsible and how to reduce exposure through regional and local policy and though individual protective measures such as air filters.
For this issue, I invite submissions that in any way inform the issue of transportation-related pollution and health, including, but not limited to, environmental monitoring, epidemiology, policy, public health and community-level interventions.
If you have an idea and are not sure of the fit, just contact me via email and I will assess it.
The first round submission deadline: 1 September 2018
Prof. Dr. Doug Brugge
