The presence of pollutants is ubiquitous in our living spaces, whether in the general environment, the professional environment or even our indoor environment. Although there is a lot of evidence for their harmful effects on health, the knowledge is still very fragmented. The multifactorial sources and non-specific nature of the pathologies make risk assessment difficult and public action remains poorly targeted. Despite these challenges, the paradigm of a single causal relationship between a pollutant and a disease often remains the reference, particularly in the regulatory field. This Special Issue aims to highlight studies that, through theoretical developments or case studies, shed new light on the exposure or health risk associated with environmental pollutants, harmful or potentially harmful to human health. Particular attention will be given to studies dealing with:
- New exposure situations or pathways (unreported exposures, overlooked pathways, higher-than-usual risk brought by unusual exposure situations)
- Integrated approaches to assess exposure to multiple pollutants (e.g., mixture of chemicals) or exposures due to multiple living environments (e.g., indoor environment, general environment, occupational environment)
- Aggregation of exposure from different exposure routes (e.g., dermal, inhalation or ingestion).
Studies from all areas related to environmental health, including but not limited to occupational health, indoor environments and food safety, will be considered for this Issue.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 monthly 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 2500 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.
