The Blacksmith Institute Journal of Health and Pollution (JH&P) is a semi-annual on-line journal of peer-reviewed research and news published by the Blacksmith Institute. The mission of JH&P is to facilitate a discussion of toxic pollution and impacts to human health, particularly focusing on poor- and middle-income countries.
The editors welcome manuscripts based on original research and findings from re-interpretation and examination of existing data. JH&P focuses particularly on point-source toxic pollution, research on related health impacts, environmental control and remediation technology. Pollutants of particular interest include: heavy metals, pesticides, radionuclides, dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), air particulates (PM10 and PM2.5) and other severe and persistent toxins. JH&P especially welcomes submissions describing the effects of lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury, radionuclides or arsenic. JH&P emphasizes work relating directly to poor and middle income countries, however highly relevant work relating to rich countries will be considered for publication on a case-by-case basis.
