Accessibility for Individuals with Disabilities
EHP is committed to making the content of this website accessible to individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act (29 U.S.C. 794d), as amended in 1998. Under Section 508, all federal agencies must provide employees and members of the public with disabilities with equal access to electronic and information technology, comparable to the access available to those who do not have disabilities, unless to do so would impose an undue burden on the agency.
The Section 508 standards are the technical requirements and criteria that are used to measure conformance with this law. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at http://www.section508.gov. If you need help accessing a PDF document, Adobe® offers conversion tools at its Accessibly Resource Center. For help with Microsoft® products, visit the Accessibility in Microsoft Products page.
EHP strives to ensure that all journal content is accessible to all readers. However, Advance Publications and some figures and Supplemental Material published in EHP articles may not be fully accessible to individuals with disabilities. Since February 2015 EHP has provided a fully 508-conformant table of contents listing the tables, figures, and other elements of Supplemental Material for those articles that have Supplemental Material. If a reader determines from this table of contents that he or she wishes to access the Supplemental Material, our staff will determine on a case-by-case basis how to best meet the reader’s need. More information on 508 accommodation is available from the Digital Communications Division of the National Institutes of Health.
If you need assistance accessing journal content, please contact the EHP Editorial Office. Our staff will work with you to assess and meet your accessibility needs within 3 working days.
This month EHP’s Children’s Health section highlights recent laboratory research about health effects of early-life exposures. By showing causative linkage between specific exposures and various health outcomes in animal models, toxicologists help to confirm associations found in observational human studies. Together, toxicologists and epidemiologists build the scientific evidence base used by risk assessors and regulators to protect children’s health.
Learn more about rigor and transparency in scientific publishing at the 2017 SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo, as EHP Editor-in-Chief Sally Perreault Darney chairs and speaks at an Informational Session titled “Addressing Rigor and Transparency in Research and Journal Publication.” At the session, scheduled for Wednesday, March 15, at 5:00 PM in Room CC 314, Sally will talk about interdisciplinary challenges for rigor and reproducibility in environmental health research. More details are available in the SOT 2017 Conference Program.
