Special Issue Information
Epidemiological studies of weather influences upon human health have historically relied on coarse aggregations at the scale of municipalities or larger. Health outcomes were then typically associated with point data of atmospheric conditions—whether thermal, pollution, or extreme environments—from which individual-level exposure would be approximated. Technological advances in sensing equipment now allow researchers to more precisely assess environmental exposure at the scale of an individual person. These more-localized response data, geocoded and available on finer scales, have enabled more in-depth responses to be assessed. The improved ability to geospatially integrate and analyze all these data has led to exciting new research, in which the variability of individuals’ exposure and response is coming to light.

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.
