Applied Environmental Science and Public Health

(ISSN: 1175-9542)

Mission Statement

Applied Environmental Science and Public Health is an international, peer reviewed journal focusing on practical application of environmental science and the interface between environmental science and related environmental and health policy. Primarily four broad categories will link environment and health:

  • personal environment (eg shelter, sanitation, indoor air quality)
  • work environment (eg institutional building environment, environment-related work conditions, hazardous materials)
  • community environment (eg water quality, air quality, household and industrial waste management, regional planning and administration, farming practice)
  • global environment (eg urbanization, climate change, atmospheric change, reduced biodiversity).

These issues will be addressed through:

  • original research reports (full papers and short communications)
  • invited reviews
  • policy alerts (discussion of noteworthy environmental policy developments around the world)
  • opinion pieces
  • perspective commentaries.

Well-considered extrapolation of issues and findings to environmental and public health policy considerations will form an important part of each article.

Applied Environmental Science and Public Health is targeted to readers interested in applying findings and principles of environmental science to optimizing the management of environmental policy, and the planning, administration and delivery of public health. The intended readership includes environmental scientists and administrators, public health professionals and managers, policy planners and funding bodies of public health, and a range of others involved in this increasingly important aspect of public administration.
