ISEE Journal News  

Environmental Epidemiology at Three: No More a Toddler

We want to share with you a celebratory letter written by Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Epidemiology Bert Brunekreef, PhD, Professor of Environmental Epidemiology at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and past president of ISEE:  Environmental Epidemiology has celebrated its third birthday, and I am happy to report the journal is alive and kicking. We quickly moved from two issues in 2017, four in 2018 to six in 2019 and 2020. Well over one hundred papers have been published, covering a very wide range of environmental epidemiology topics. A large majority of these papers have been submitted by ISEE members, showing that the ISEE membership clearly recognizes the journal as a prime channel for publishing key findings.  Read more.

The Communications Committee is soliciting commentaries from members 

Commentaries can be on any topic of broad interest to ISEE members. Examples of previous commentaries can be found here
