Real Time Detection System Studies

As direct reading instrument technology improves and low-cost sensors become widely available, exposure assessors need updated guidance. Exposure assessors have questions on the utility of low-cost sensor systems, wearable technology, benefits of system installations and the ethical and legal hurdles to implementation.  Questions from practitioners include: Are these low-cost sensors sufficiently robust for us to make decisions about worker exposures? What do we do about sensor drift? How many sensors should be deployed?  How do we process the data generated by a network of sensors? Researchers who are investigating these and other questions regarding real time detection systems are encouraged to submit a technical manuscript or a short report (case study) on research or field deployment experiences to help the profession integrate new detection systems into the applied practices of exposure assessment within the work environment. Review articles and commentaries relevant to these topics will also be considered.

Manuscripts should be submitted using the JOEH manuscript guidance.  Authors need to clearly state the study’s research question and objective.  Authors are encouraged to include “recommendations” for practitioners as well as implications for promoting “practice to research to practice,” where appropriate, at the end of the manuscript.

Submission Instructions

Please send an email stating your intent to submit a manuscript for this special issue by June 1, 2022. Address emails to the editor ([email protected]) and describe your topic and how it is relevant to JOEH readers.

We ask that authors submit these Real Time Detection System studies to the JOEH by July 1, 2022.  Select “Supplemental Issue Only” as the manuscript type, but include details on the manuscript type (technical, short report, review, or commentary) in your cover letter. We hope to have reviews and revisions completed by November 2022 to deliver a special focus issue in January 2023, at the latest.  We hope to include between 10 and 15 manuscripts to complete this special topic issue on Real Time Detection System Studies.
