Call for papers: Nanotechnology Exposure Assessment
(Nanowerk News) The International Journal of Occupational and Environmental Health is seeking submissions for a special issue provisionally titled, “Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment for Nanomaterials,” guest edited by Vladimir Murashov, PhD, Special Assistant to the Director, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health.
This issue originates from presentations and discussions at the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative workshop on Human and Environmental Exposure Assessment held on February 24-25, 2009 in Bethesda, MD. WThe journal seeks additional submissions in this research area, including work on methods for measuring and modeling environmental and occupational exposure levels and on monitoring biological response indicators throughout nanomaterial product life.
The critical importance of exposure assessment as an integral component of risk assessment and risk management of nanomaterials is widely recognized. This issue seeks to make a substantial contribution to the responsible introduction of nanomaterials into commerce by presenting critical data for risk management through state-of-the-science assessments, by identifying critical research gaps, and by facilitating coordinated efforts to address the gaps.
Submit manuscripts at www.ijoeh.com. Please indicate in the “Comments for Editor” field that your submission is for the special issue.
