Special Issue Information
The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) is hosting a Special Issue for the International Workshop "Impacts of early-life exposure to environmental contaminants: children’s health in the Anthropocene".
Human health is intrinsically associated with socio-economic and environmental factors. Exposure to environmental contaminants, either physical, chemical, or biological, is considered an important factor that affects human health. Humans may be exposed to these pollutants through several pathways, including ingestion, inhalation, and dermal contact. Children are particularly vulnerable to environmental pollutants, and their exposure patterns also differ significantly from adults due to the activities they engage in, including, for example, frequent hand-to-mouth contact. Their behaviors may increase the intake of contaminants, and health outcomes associated with these intakes can be enhanced at specific developmental stages. Furthermore, exposure to environmental contaminants disproportionately affects more vulnerable populations, and, within these populations, children.
This Special Issue will publish papers presented in the International Workshop "Impacts of early-life exposure to environmental contaminants: children’s health in the Anthropocene". Articles are welcome from any of the fields that fall within the topic of the Workshop, including prenatal exposure, pregnancy, risk factors, risk perception, intervention studies, inequalities in environmental exposure, and any other topic related to environmental contaminants and children’s health.

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.
