Building Capacity Column Submission

A need exists within environmental health agencies to increase their capacity to perform in an environment of diminishing resources. With limited resources and increasing demands, we need to seek new approaches to the practice of environmental health. Acutely aware of these challenges, the JEH publishes the Building Capacity column to educate, reinforce, and build upon successes within the profession using technology to improve efficiency and extend the impact of environmental health agencies.

The JEH seeks guest authors for the Building Capacity column. Our goal is to provide a platform to share capacity building successes occurring across the country and within different sectors of the environmental health profession, including academia, private industry, nongovernmental organizations, and state, local, tribal, and territorial health agencies.

Submissions will be reviewed by technical advisors for data and technology and JEH staff for appropriate content, relevance, and adherence to submission guidelines.

Become a Peer Reviewer

Scientific manuscripts submitted to the Journal for publication consideration go through a peer review process. Peer reviewers are subject matter experts who provide constructive comments designed to help the author produce a better article, as well as provide direction on the suitability of the manuscript for publication. On average, peer reviewers conduct three to four manuscript reviews a year at the direction of the Journal's editorial staff.

The Journal of Environmental Health is currently in search of new peer reviewers.
