ISEE Editorial Pages: "Reflections on Environmental Epidemiology"

ISEE has space in EPIDEMIOLOGY for editorial content.  The ISEE Council has dedicated two pages per issue as a forum for “Reflections on Environmental Epidemiology.”  These numberd and indexed pages provide the opportunity for members to comment on issues of interest in the field of environmental epidemiology.  We encourage thoughtful, candid, provocative papers to stimulate thinking and examination of the work we do including its context and implications. Examples of possible topics:

-- Observations about the history and evolution of the field

-- Personal reflections on the experience of working in different settings, engaging in research in unusual or controversial areas

-- Opinions about issues of advocacy, research, policy, etc. as they apply to environmental epidemiology

-- Logistical or ethical challenges in environmental epidemiology

These less formal essays can be more subjective than papers submitted for peer review. Acceptance would require only a screening by an ISEE committee chaired by David Savitz that includes Brenda Eskenazi, Maria Feychting, and Manolis Kogevinus.  Please submit ideas for consideration to David Savitz, EPIDEMIOLOGY Editor Emeritus (david_savitz@brown.edu).
