SIMA è la Società Scientifica di riferimento per l’Italia dell’International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH).

Nel Board Editoriale IJERPH siedono il Presidente SIMA, Prof. Alessandro Miani, il Vice Presidente SIMA, Dott. Prisco Piscitelli, il Responsabile SIMA Sicurezza Alimentare, Prof. Marcello Iriti, il Responsabile SIMA Indoor Air Quality, Prof. Gianluigi De Gennaro.

SIMA ha stipulato con IJERPH una convenzione per i suoi associati:

International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health
(IJERPH – ISSN 1660-4601; CODEN: IJERGQ; ISSN 1661-7827 for printed edition – Impact Factor: 2.035 <2015>; 5-Year Impact Factor: 2.471 <2015>) is an interdisciplinary, open access and peer-reviewed scientific journal published monthly online by MDPI.

The Journal publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes, and short communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. It links several scientific disciplines including biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, computer science, ecology, engineering, epidemiology, genetics, immunology, microbiology, oncology, pathology, pharmacology, and toxicology, in an integrated fashion, to address critical issues related to environmental quality and public health. Therefore, IJERPH focuses on the publication of scientific and technical information on the impacts of natural phenomena and anthropogenic factors on the quality of our environment, the interrelationships between environmental health and the quality of life, as well as the socio-cultural, political, economic, and legal considerations related to environmental stewardship and public health. The primary areas of research interests to the IJERPH include:

  • Gene-environment interactions
  • Environmental genomics and proteomics
  • Environmental toxicology, mutagenesis and carcinogenesis
  • Environmental epidemiology and disease control
  • Health risk assessment and management
  • Ecotoxicology, and ecological risk assessment and management
  • Natural resources damage assessment
  • Environmental chemistry and computational modeling
  • Environmental policy and management
  • Environmental engineering and biotechnology
  • Emerging issues in environmental health and diseases
  • Environmental education and public health

Therefore this international journal covers a broad spectrum of important topics which are relevant to environmental health sciences and public health protection. It provides comprehensive and unique information with a worldwide readership. Emphasizing holistic approach, the journal serves as a comprehensive and multidisciplinary platform, addressing important public health issues associated with environmental pollution and degradation. A large number of eminent professors and scientists from all over the world serve as guest reviewers for the journal.

In May 2016 SIMA chose IJERPH as its prefered journal and became an affiliated society to the journal. As part of this collaboration all SIMA members enjoy a 20% discount of the article processing charge. SIMA endorses IJERPH and recommends its members to publish in this journal.
