Environment International

A Journal of Environmental Science, Risk & Health

Environment International

Environment International is an international, multidisciplinary Journal with a specific focus on the impacts of human activities and environment on human health. It serves as a platform for academics, practitioners, regulators, and policy makers to share and discuss insights into how our human activities and the environment shapes and impacts human health now and in the future. In doing so, it also brings forward opportunities to minimize health risk and maximize resilience.

We would specifically like to encourage submission of papers in the following subject areas:

  • The prediction and impact of air quality (outdoor and indoor) on human health
  • The use of systematic review methods for environmental and human health risk assessment
  • The modelling and impact of chemicals of emerging concern on human exposure
  • Health implications and impacts of climate change with specific reference to sustainable development and COP21
  • Women and children as specific and vulnerable sub-populations

The Editors will not consider submission of routine surveys of monitoring nature and papers lacking substantive synthesis. Papers focused on in vivo and in vitro research, (eco)toxicology, analytical chemistry and (environmental) medicine are also out of scope and best focused elsewhere across the Elsevier portfolio.

Manuscript Types:

  • Research papers- high quality original research supported by substantive synthesis and scientific hypothesis
  • Critical Reviews- provide systematic and substantial coverage of mature areas of research, evaluations of progress and/or critical assessments of emerging technologies
  • Perspectives/Frontiers (topical essays that present a specific point of view and have a 'horizon scanning theme')
  • Policy Analysis (commissioned only)
  • Correspondence and commentaries

Proposals for Guest-Edited Special Issues including high quality collections of conference papers matching the Scope of Environmental International and Virtual Special Issues are welcome and encouraged.
