Increase font size Air Pollution and Respiratory Health Preterm delivery, low birth weight and small for gestational age SGA are major causes of infant mortality and severe morbidity in the U. For African Americans, these risks are nearly doubled. A challenge in this research is that particles vary widely in chemical composition by region and season. Due to lack of scientific evidence on which types of particles are most harmful, particles are regulated by size.

The editors welcome high quality papers where the pollutants are clearly defined and measured and can be directly related to biological, ecological, and human health effects.
This includes air, water, and soil pollution and climate change. Emerging pollutions are of eminent interest, such as microplastics, electronic wastes, light or noise pollution as long as they can clearly be related to the biological effects mentioned above.
Papers, such as meta analyses, that report findings from re-examination and interpretation of existing data are welcome. Modeling papers are welcome only to a certain extent, i. Critical review papers and commentaries are also of high interest as are letters to the editor. The editors do not wish to publish papers that describe results from routine surveys and monitoring programs that are primarily of local or regional interest.
Descriptions of well-known pollutants, such as legacy pollutants, in yet another location are not of interest. Papers about sewage, waste and wastewater treatment and management as well as standard techniques in agronomy, remediation, biomonitoring, bioremediation and phytoremediation are not acceptable.
However, papers on innovative techniques to combat regional or global problems are welcome; however, technical studies must show their field applicability.
Eutrophication studies and secondary pollution by eutrophication are not covered by Environmental Pollution. In the same line, papers on ocean enrichment by CO2 will not be accepted. The abstract up to wordshighlights and conclusions of papers in this journal must contain clear and concise statements.
A graphical abstract is mandatory. A cover letter must be accompanied with each submission, containing clear and concise statements as to why the study was done and how readers will benefit from the results.
The cover letter must explicitly express how the submission fits the Aims and Scope of Environmental Pollution. Failure to include the paragraph will result in returning the paper to the author. The editors welcome the following contributions: Results from completed investigations reporting original and previously unpublished work.
A brief communication of urgent matter or the reporting of preliminary findings to be given expedited publication. In-depth critical reviews of special subjects. Authors planning reviews should contact one of the editors prior to submission.
Special Issues will be published on emerging thematic issues and innovative conferences. An Editor or Associate Editor should be contacted early in the conference planning process to get approval and for guidelines on special issues of the journal.The World Health Organization (WHO) recognises ambient (outdoor) air quality as a major environmental risk to health.
Worldwide, an estimated million premature deaths (under age 60) were found to be attributable to ambient air pollution in National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences | The mission of the NIEHS is to discover how the environment affects people in order to promote healthier lives.
Air Pollution and Health: RSC (Issues in Environmental Science and Technology): Air Pollution and Health also addresses the practical issue of setting standards for human exposure to air pollution by including the philosophy of standard setting and a review of currently available standards, along with a description of the setting of .
When methods of measuring air quality are inadequate, people and the economy suffer. We know that air pollution is bad for our health, especially in congested areas like cities.
Sep 19, · News about air pollution. Commentary and archival information about air pollution from The New York Times. IntroductionAlthough a number of physical activities (volcanoes, fire, etc.) may release different pollutants in the environment, anthropogenic activities are the major cause of environmental air pollution.
