We are organizing a Special Issue on “Occupational Epidemiology” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. 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.
In times of globalization, movements of workforce, outsourcing of hazardous work from developed to developing countries, labor law differences between countries but also new technology put new challenges into the field of occupational epidemiology. Analyzing the impact of these changes is, therefore, a topic of high relevance to science, as well as to policy. Considerable advances in the availability of large data sets from epidemiological cohort studies and international working networks have been established. There are still many gaps of knowledge, e.g., concerning health outcomes due to hazardous exposure in the workplaces.
With this Special Issue, we invite you to submit high-quality original research articles or reviews that provide solid new findings extending the current state of knowledge. Preference will be given to contributions using longitudinal data. Studies with cross-sectional design will only be considered as exceptions if convincingly justified. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field, and would be due no later than the end of October 2018.Dr. Marit Skogstad
