Special Issue "Predictive Models That Can Impact Public Health"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Public Health Statistics and Risk Assessment".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2021.
We are organizing a Special Issue on the use of predictive models to benefit public health for the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. This journal is peer-reviewed and publishes articles in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. Predictive models estimate probability of an event through the use of information on certain risk factors for that event. They are being increasingly used to assist healthcare professionals in making decisions that are more likely to avoid a specific event, with the consequent positive impact on public health. This Special Issue is focused on the construction and validation of predictive models with original data. Some possible topics are listed below, though other topics are also welcome:
- COVID-19 research
- Cardiovascular diseases and their risk factors
- Infectious diseases
- Environmental research
- Screening tests
- Hospital emergencies
- Health promotion
