Special Issue "Statistical Analysis of Childhood Epidemiology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 January 2024 | Viewed by 1348
Childhood epidemiology or pediatric epidemiology examines etiology and prognosis in disease prevention and intervention, but with little focus on quality of life in childhood. In addition to maternal and paternal factors, genetic factors, health factors, housing factors, environmental factors, nutritional factors, and vaccination factors, developmental, educational, societal, cultural, financial, pharmaceutical, ethical, and legal aspects have also contributed to the pattern of next-generation human resources. However, research in the latter parts is lacking.
We aim to publish research papers using a variety of methods to gather and to analyze the whole range of the childhood period, from conception to 18 years of age, encompassing all related study variables, including maternal, paternal, genetic, health, housing, environmental, nutritional, vaccination, developmental, educational, societal, cultural, financial, pharmaceutical, ethical, and legal that can have risky or protective impacts, including causes and effects on disease prevention and intervention and quality of life.
Methodology in conducting original primary and/or secondary research, reviews, and policy briefing will be the main focus of this Special Issue to pave the way for growing the future discipline in childhood epidemiology worldwide. Mathematical modeling with simulation will be the second focus of this Special Issue.
Research papers including full-length articles, short communication (field practice), review articles, and policy briefs are all welcome. Studies from baseline to follow-ups are especially encouraged. We look for papers with clear visualization in tables, graphs, maps, etc. for the general public and media use.
