Journal Information

Aims and scope
The Journal of Exposure Science and Environmental Epidemiology (JESEE) aims to be the premier and authoritative source of information on advances in exposure science for professionals in a wide range of environmental and public health disciplines.

JESEE welcomes high-quality, original research articles that further understanding of the relationship between environmental exposure and human health, describe evaluated exposure assessment tools and methods, and demonstrate application of exposure science to enable decisions and actions that promote and protect human health. JESEE also publishes perspectives, reviews and commentaries discussing major advances, trends and challenges in exposure science that highlight contributions of the field to environmental and public health.

JESEE publishes novel results and significant advances in exposure science, exposure analysis, and environmental epidemiology to understand human health impacts of the full range of environmental stressors (chemical, biological, physical, psychosocial). JESEE is particularly interested in publishing research that integrates exposure knowledge with information from across scientific disciplines to contribute solutions for the most pressing environmental and public health concerns.

Topics of interest include:

Research on understanding exposures to address critical environmental health challenges  

  • Climate related exposures, including impacts of exposures due to global environmental change 
  • Sustainable development
  • Healthy buildings and the built environment
  • Workplace and para-occupational exposures especially for occupational groups in the informal economy
  • Links between individual or multiple environmental stressors and human health
  • Early life exposure and latent disease
  • Environmental justice and highly impacted communities
  • Joint exposures: mixtures, co-exposures, interactions between social and environmental factors

Development and application of the latest tools and technologies for measuring and predicting exposures

  • Biomonitoring
  • Non-targeted analysis and suspect screening
  • Exposomics and environmental metabolomics
  • Sensors and Internet of Things (IoT) platforms
  • Remote sensing or imaging
  • Mechanistic and data-driven computer modeling
  • Geospatial analyses
  • Data science techniques

Approaches for integrating exposure information from different disciplines to enable decisions and actions

  • Understand the sources, pathways, and patterns of exposure to legacy and emerging environmental stressors
  • Evaluating and ensuring quality of water, air, and food
  • Considering lifecycle impacts of products and processes
  • Translating advances in exposure science for risk assessment
  • Preventing disproportionate exposures and reducing cumulative impacts of environmental stressors on vulnerable individuals and communities
  • Addressing understudied communities and regions
  • Involving impacted communities in exposure-related policies
  • Informing sustainability metrics
