We are organizing a Special Issue on the advances in suicide research in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) (ISSN 1660-4601, IF 2.101). The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Suicide research as a multidisciplinary field has established itself over the last century. In that time, diverse pathways, numerous risk and protective factors have been identified. Research in the field has given rise to a range of theories and has led to the realisation that suicidal behaviour is a complex phenomenon and its prevention is a challenge needing a culturally sensitive global response. Furthermore, different study designs have been encouraged to drive understanding of the mechanisms of suicidal behaviour, and prevention, in order to fill the existing gaps in knowledge.
In this Special Issue, we welcome papers that utilise quantitative, qualitative and mixed methods study designs and also innovative methodological and conceptual frameworks in advancing suicide research.Dr. Kairi Kõlves
