About the journal
The Environmental and Occupational Health Practice (EOH-P), a journal of the Japan Society for Occupational Health, which takes a broader approach than JOH (http://joh-journal.jp/), welcoming papers from across the occupational health and allied areas. EOH-P primarily seeks to publish reports on knowledge gained through practice, which has important empirical value for occupational health. It also seeks to publish papers on environment issues.
More specifically, the scope of this journal covers papers describing practical activities and good practice in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH), as well as reports on environmental issues that remain problematic, such as exposure to high concentrations of toxic substances in the fields of not only occupational setting but also natural or urban environment. The journal also actively discusses issues and topics without much previous coverage, such as OSH in medium and small-sized enterprises and for immigrant workers, as well as OSH problems encountered in general clinical care. The journal also welcomes practitioners’ expressing concerns for future research.
EOH-P also accepts reports on the development or usage of tools for OSH activities, exploratory research that has the potential for expansion (including scale development studies), and methodology studies detailing new initiatives or adjustments useful for work practices. The journal’s publication criteria are based on the rigor of the methodology and the appropriate interpretations so that studies reporting negative results are also considered for publication. Specialized OSH videos and open data are welcomed as supplementary files.
