Special Issue "Climate change and Public Health: Emerging Knowledge on Impacts and Vulnerabilities"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Climate Change and Health".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 October 2019).
Interests: climate change, extreme weather, and air pollution on human health; disaster epidemiology and public health; school environmental factors and children’s health, attendance, and performance; environmental exposures and childhood asthma; occupational and environmental risk factors on birth defects and other birth outcomes; global health research; air pollution and traffic exposures on asthma; evaluation of environmental policy’s impacts on human health; heavy metal exposures and birth outcomes; fish consumption and heavy metal exposures
Interests: air pollution epidemiology; climate change; temperature; pollen; wildfires; health impact assessment; future projections; exposure assessment; low-cost sensors
Interests: environmental epidemiology; indoor and outdoor air pollution; environmental toxicology; environmental contaminants on adults’ and children’s health; exposure assessment; environmental health; greenness coverage’s effect on blood lipids and diabetes; and human health impacts of emergent contaminants, including PM10, PM2.5, perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), and traditional or new types of persistent organic pollutant (POPs) in ambient air particles.
Climate change has led to increased greenhouse gas emissions and more frequent and intense extreme weather, which has been found to increase the risk of multiple health outcomes and cause public health concern.
Dr. Lin, the Guest Editor from University at Albany, State University of New York, USA, Dr. Kinney, the Co-Guest Editor from Boston University, USA, and Dr. Dong, the Co-Guest Editor from Sun Yat-sen University, China, on behalf of the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, are pleased to announce a Special Issue on Climate change and Public Health: Emerging Knowledge on Impacts and Vulnerabilities, to be published in the Summer of 2019. We invite high quality research submissions covering a broad range of climate change, air pollution, extreme weather, and related health outcomes.
Submission topics may include, but are not limit to, the following:
- Human health impacts from extreme weather or extreme weather events on physical and mental health outcomes.
- Vector-borne diseases or infectious disease risks from changing climate or extreme weather/events, especially studies on climate-sensitive vector-borne or infectious diseases.
- Outdoor/ indoor air pollution or aeroallergens levels on human health.
- Individual or community vulnerabilities to climate change’s impact on health.
- Public health benefits or impacts of policies on air pollutants mitigation or programs to adapt to climate change.
- Innovative or specific methodologies or prediction models in climate–health research.

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
