Environnement, Risques & Santé

Launched in response to the information needs of the various actors on the environmental scene, Environnement, Risques & Santé is a cross-disciplinary journal covering all subjects that involve the environment and health.
Climatology, toxicology, epidemiology, biophysics, earth and water sciences, the study of radiation…: all the health issues relevant to those fields are studied in Environnement, Risques & Santé, from identifying health risks to examining legislation and standards.
Environnement, Risques & Santé intersperses original articles with summary reports on the state of international research and scientific debate, under the supervision of three completely independent Editorial Boards.
Thanks to its wealth of content and to the expertise of the Editorial Board members – all leading experts in their fields – Environnement, Risques & Santé sets out to be the scientific benchmark on environmental health.

Environnement Risques et Santé is the official magazine of the Society francophone Health and Environment (SFSE).

MENU

Environnement, Risques & Santé is a bi-monthly French-language peer-reviewed journal for scientists interested in the relationship between the environment and health, engineers wishing to become familiar with health risk assessment, and doctors wanting to understand more fundamental scientific approaches used to assess the exposure of populations for example.

 

PEER REVIEW POLICY

Manuscripts sent to the Editors of ERS are submitted for review by two experts in the field, who remain anonymous to the authors. The first author must certify in a covering letter that the paper submitted has been approved by all authors and that it has not been submitted to other journals.

 

ETHICAL RECOMMENDATIONS

  • The first author is the person who has made a substantial contribution to designing and drafting the manuscript. Where illustrations are provided by a third party, regardless of whether or not they have already been published, the author must submit all permissions required for them to be incorporated into the article alongside the manuscript. These permissions are generally granted via the https://www.copyright.com website (see "Get permission" button available for each article).

By submitting an article, the author confirms to the Editors of ERS that all steps have been taken during the collection of experimental and clinical data to comply with legal obligations and the Helsinki Charter. In particular, the author confirms that they have received patients’ informed consent. Upon request, the first author should sign and return the transfer of copyright document.

  •  The authors agree to inform the Editors of ERS of any conflict of interest. A conflict of interest statement will be sent with the proofs and authors will be asked to list any financial interests, clinical trials, ad hoc interventions or family relationships which may influence their professional judgement.
