Special Issue "Promoting Health for Adolescents"
A special issue of International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (ISSN 1660-4601). This special issue belongs to the section "Adolescents".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 March 2022.
Chronic diseases and premature death can often be linked to social, environmental, and behavioural factors that are subject to modification, especially during adolescence when a number of complex biological, physical, and behavioural transformations take place, as well as when many habits—both good and bad—are formed. Therefore, the actions, exposure, and behaviours during this period leave an indelible mark on the capacity to fulfil one’s health potential.
Approaches studying adolescent health that relate to disease prevention, health protection, health promotion, and health literacy form the core of this Special Issue. Novel discoveries and methods relating to biological, psychosocial, and environmental components are particularly welcome. This new Special Issue on promoting health for adolescents is characterized by advanced research methods, such as prospective longitudinal designs, random controlled trials, meta-analyses, innovative technologies, and the application of these methods and technologies in specific population groups, including clinical populations as well as communities stratified by socioeconomic criteria. Papers addressing these topics are invited for this Special Issue, especially those combining a high academic standard coupled with a practical focus on providing optimal solutions for promoting health for adolescents.
