I am organizing a Special Issue on the impacts of air pollution and/or traffic-related exposures on health (with a focus on general population studies/cohorts) 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, please go to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Exposures to air pollution remain a key determinant of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Research in this area has been instrumental in setting policies worldwide, however, data is still needed in many countries around the world, and on understudied diseases. More information is also needed on how traffic-related exposures (including air pollution) interact with other aspects of the environment (e.g., temperature, humidity, greenness, urban form) to impact health in the general population. Intervention studies are also needed to provide examples of how changes in behaviors or in exposures can lead to changes in health outcomes.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the impacts of air pollution or traffic exposures on public health. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
