Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The main goal of the current Special Issue is to advance mathematical and statistical methodological innovations for global health and epidemiology. We strive to create a space to cultivate and stimulate creativity, reflection, and innovation. We expect this Special Issue to provide opportunities for scholarly exchange of innovative ideas as well as new perspectives and reflections on ideas and concepts that, in and of themselves, may not be new to some fields (e.g., statistics or economics) but are unknown or underappreciated in public health research. We also strive to provide an environment for articles that may be considered to be too simple for the theoretical journals and, yet, too complex for the applied journals. To this effect, we intend to make editorial decisions that will reflect the soundness of the argument rather than the implications of their conclusions. In addition, elegant mathematical arguments and logical interpretations that challenge the current methodology are highly encouraged. We welcome new research papers, reviews, and case reports. We will accept manuscripts from different disciplines including global health, epidemiology, health disparities including but not limited to disparities in access to healthcare, exposure assessment, intervention studies, risk, and health impact assessment.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
