Sanitarno Inženirstvo / International Journal of Sanitary Engineering Research (IJSER) publishes the latest scientific achievements and results of applied research and professional achievements of scientists and experts in the field of sanitary engineering, public health, medicine, environmental health, ecology, occupational safety, the hazardous chemicals, and other related topics.
IJSER is interested in:
- consequences of human exposure to the biological, chemical, and physical environment,
- risk assessment and risk management,
- applied epidemiology,
- occupational hygiene,
- hygiene in facilities and working processes,
- control of communicable diseases,
- quality and safety of drinking water,
- management of food quality and food safety,
- environmental control and safety,
- fate and transport of contaminants on watersheds, in surface waters, in groundwater, in the soil, and in the atmosphere,
- environmental biology, microbiology, chemistry,
- fluid mechanics, and physical processes that control natural concentrations and dispersion of waste in the air, water, and soil,
- non-point source pollution on watersheds, in streams, in groundwater, in lakes, and in estuaries and coastal areas,
- management of solid waste,
- treatment, management, and control of hazardous wastes,
- wastewater collection and treatment,
- pest control.
This is not an exhaustive list, and the editors will consider articles on any issue relating to public health, environmental health, or engineering in the context of the previous two fields.
The interdisciplinary scope of publications also extends in the fields of research that are theoretically and methodologically natural sciences but are also significant for wider society, which means that the range of the research also integrates social science. Topics or research in the fields such as food irradiation, the genotoxicity of natural chemicals, the handling of organic waste and oils from kitchens, eco-remediation – ecosystem environmental technologies must be supplemented with research on the social field. For example, only by studying habits related to the improper handling of waste can certain answers be found for the quality of the environment and human health.
In the journal, in addition to the latest research and the transfer of skills into practice, we also publish information about scientific and professional meetings both in Slovenia and throughout the world. The domestic scientists and experts are familiar with the latest research in Slovenia through the journal, including the successful transfer of skills into practice. While the original scientific (but also professional) articles will be published in the English language, the presented achievements will also be accessible to the foreign scientific sphere. In addition, we want to encourage the participation of experts from the areas of the former Yugoslavia to cooperate with Slovenes, and then gradually expand this cooperation with the experts from the EU and beyond.
With the participation and with the publishing of technical and scientific articles, we will encourage joint projects, research and contribute to the greater visibility of the sciences as well as the promotion of experts.
