Collections and Abstracts
Each month EHP publishes peer-reviewed Commentaries, Research, and Reviews from a wide range of scientific disciplines as well as a fully referenced, expert-reviewed News section. EHP Collections pull together previously published content on topics of special interest to our readers, offered as searchable pdf files. EHP also publishes abstracts from selected scientific meetings.
Children’s Health Collections
ISEE/ISES/ISIAQ Conference “Environment and Health—Bridging South, North, East and West,” 2013
ISEE 23rd Annual Conference, 2011
CEHN Conference on the Contribution of Epigenetics in Pediatric Environmental Health, 2012
Because children are uniquely sensitive to their environments, EHP devotes a research section each month specifically to issues surrounding children’s environmental health, and each year the October issue is largely devoted to these topics. Our annual Children’s Health Collections comprise peer-reviewed research articles (including reviews and commentaries), news articles, editorials, and podcasts published the preceding October through September. These are divided into larger sections—Disease Outcomes, Exposures, and Methodologies and Populations—with more specific topics within each. Each research article is represented by an abstract, and each title is hyperlinked to the full article on the EHP website. News articles, editorials, and podcasts are listed in sidebars with the related research.
- Children’s Health 2013 Collection (Also available as a 5.5MB PDF)
- Children’s Health 2012 Collection (4.8MB PDF)
- Children’s Health 2011 Collection (9.5MB PDF)
- Children’s Health 2010 Collection (6.9MB PDF)
Bisphenol A (BPA), one of the highest-volume chemicals produced globally, is found throughout the environment. Many studies have shown BPA to have estrogenic activity in vitro and in vivo, making it a topic of ongoing interest to the toxicology and regulatory communities. The BPA Collection includes abstracts of dozens of BPA-related Commentaries, Reviews, and Research Articles published between 2007 and 2011. Each title is hyperlinked to the full article on the EHP website. This collection is divided into four sections—Toxicology, Epidemiology, Exposure, and Regulatory Science.

The 2013 conference “Environment and Health—Bridging South, North, East and West” was a joint meeting of the International Society for Environmental Epidemiology (ISEE), the International Society of Exposure Science (ISES), and the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ). More than 1,700 participants from all continents and over 70 countries attended the conference, which was hosted by the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute.
ISEE is an international organization with almost 1,000 members from more than 60 countries. This collection includes more than 1,500 abstracts for posters, oral presentations, symposia, plenary sessions, and keynote addresses presented at ISEE’s 23rd Annual Conference, along with the complete conference program. Themes for the 2011 conference included:
- Sustainable transportation and health
- Impact of transport on health and approaches to reduce health impacts
- Climate change and health
- In utero and early-life exposures and effects in later life
- New methods and technologies
CEHN is a national multidisciplinary organization whose mission is to protect the developing child from environmental health hazards and promote a healthier environment. CEHN’s 20th anniversary conference, The Contribution of Epigenetics in Pediatric Environmental Health, includes keynote addresses, mini-symposia, and posters. Topics for the conference include:
- Developmental Stressors
- Developmental Origins of Disease
- Role of Nutrition
- Critical Windows of Early Exposure and Sensitivity
- Effects of Prenatal Exposures
- Future Directions and Policy Implications
- CEHN Conference (5.5MB PDF)
New Impact Factor
We are pleased to announce our new impact factor of 7.03 and—for the first time—our inclusion in the category of Toxicology. Thank you to our authors and readers, who continue to make EHP a leading journal in Environmental Sciences, in Public, Environmental, and Occupational Health, and now in Toxicology.
EHP News Feature Wins Award
Our March 2013 cover story, “A Tale of Two Forests: Addressing Postnuclear Radiation at Chernobyl and Fukushima,” has won first place in the Outstanding Feature Story category of the Society of Environmental Journalists Awards for Reporting on the Environment. The judges called the story “an exceedingly vital and original piece of environmental feature writing.” Congratulations to authors Winifred A. Bird and Jane Braxton Little on their exciting achievement!
CEHN August 2014 Article of the Month
“Gestational Exposure to Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals and Reciprocal Social, Repetitive and Stereotypic Behaviors in 4- and 5-Year-Old Children: The HOME Study” (Environ Health Perspect; DOI:10.1289/ehp.1307261) has been selected by the Children’s Environmental Health Network (CEHN) as its August 2014 Article of the Month. These CEHN summaries discuss the potential policy implications of current children’s environmental health research.
