Editor Sought for Leading Journal on Occupational and Environmental Health and Safety

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (June 13, 2022)—AIHA and the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) have announced a search for a new editor-in-chief for the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene. Published jointly by AIHA and ACGIH, JOEH is a peer-reviewed publication devoted to enhancing the knowledge and practice of occupational and environmental health and safety.

Since 2004, JOEH has published peer-reviewed research studies that examine exposures, risks, and controls that can be used to understand how exposures relate to health outcomes, and how these can be managed for the betterment of society. JOEH publishes studies across a range of investigation types, including laboratory investigations, field studies, simulations, and secondary data analyses. Stressors relating to adverse health outcomes are the main focus of JOEH, including chemical, biological, radiation, noise, ergonomics, and psychosocial hazards, including how work-life organization affects these exposures.

Applications for JOEH editor-in-chief are being accepted through June 30, 2022. The selected candidate is expected to begin work on or around November 1, 2022. For information on how to apply, refer to the call for applicants.
