Special Issue of Journal of Agromedicine: Safety and Health in Commercial Fishing, Aquaculture, and Seafood Processing

BACKGROUND

In June 2018, more than 175 occupational safety and health (OSH) researchers, safety professionals, industry members and students from 24 countries gathered in St. John’s, Newfoundland, for The Fifth International Fishing Industry Safety and Health Conference (IFISH 5). Based on the amazing work presented and the partnerships which developed as a result of the conference, the IFISH organizing committee has asked the Journal of Agromedicine to plan a special issue on the topic of OSH in fishing, aquaculture, and seafood processing.

INSTRUCTIONS

The Journal would like to invite submissions related to recent scholarly/research activities either presented at IFISH 5 or relevant data/information that has been collected in the months since the conference. Topics should directly discuss issues pertaining to OSH in one of these industries. Manuscripts discussing small-scale fisheries, high-risk maritime populations, and strategic partnerships are encouraged. For more information regarding criteria for submissions, please see “Instructions for authors” on the Journal’s website.

SUBMISSIONS

Manuscripts intended for consideration must be submitted via email by March 15, 2019, for review by the guest editors. Peer review will be completed during the summer of 2019. The anticipated publication date is October 2019. Due to space limitations, a maximum of (12) manuscripts (original research, commentaries, and brief reports) will be selected for this issue.

 

Please send your manuscripts directly to:
