Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology (JESEE) publishes high-quality, original research articles, reviews and commentaries that further understanding of the relationship between environmental exposure and human health, describe evaluated novel exposure science tools, or demonstrate the potential of exposure science to enable decisions and actions that promote and protect human health.
JESEE is particularly interested in publishing research that integrates information from exposure science, epidemiology, and toxicology to provide holistic understanding of the most pressing environmental and public health concerns.
JESEE also publishes perspectives, reviews and analysis of the major advances, trends and challenges in exposure science for a diverse professional audience. It aims to promote interdisciplinary understanding of exposure science contributions to the environmental and public health field.

Our publishing models
Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology is a Transformative Journal (TJ). When research is accepted for publication, authors can choose to publish using either the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.
Journal of Exposure Science & Environmental Epidemiology is actively committed to becoming a fully Open Access journal. We will increase the number of articles we publish OA, with the eventual goal of becoming a fully Open Access journal. A journal that commits to this process is known as a Transformative Journal.
Authors may need to take specific actions to achieve compliance with funder and institutional open access mandates. If your research is supported by a funder that requires immediate open access (e.g. according to Plan S principles) then you should select the gold OA route, and we will direct you to the compliant route where possible. For authors selecting the subscription publication route our standard licensing terms will need to be accepted including our self-archiving policies. Those standard licensing terms will supersede any other terms that the author or any third party may assert apply to any version of the manuscript.
Article metrics such as number of downloads, citations and online attention are available from each article page, and provide an overview of the attention received by a paper.
