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.

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.

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
The Children’s Environmental Health Network (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)
