This Special Issue is part of the process of the World Health Organization (WHO) noise guideline update of 2014–2017. In this issue, the evidence reviews related to the specific "critical" and “important” health endpoints, chosen by the guideline development group (GDG), will be published after WHO has given permission.
As pointed out in the Handbook for Guideline Development (WHO 2014), the evidence reviews will follow the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) guidelines (http://www.gradeworkinggroup.org/) to assess the quality of the available evidence for the chosen health endpoints. The papers are subjected to a double review process: First, two or three external experts will review the papers and make recommendations. In parallel, the WHO-GDG members will review the papers and provide additional feedback to the authors.
