We are organizing a Special Issue featuring original research and systematic reviews investigating neighborhood environmental influences on health and well-being in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes different types of papers including articles, reviews 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.
Globally, there are a number of trends relevant to neighborhood characteristics which can influence health and wellness. These include urbanization, inequality, gentrification and displacement, aging, and migration. Neighborhoods can change as people migrate to them due to economic opportunities or because they are fleeing unrest. We are interested in research that explore the health and wellness effects of these processes, policies, or other contemporary developments which provoke an examination of place and health. Featured studies could highlight an unconventional method or dataset, could be a case study or longitudinal analyses of natural experiments, interventions, or large cohort studies.
