International Journal of Sanitary Engineering Research is dedicated to advancing the careers of scientists and promoting the field of public and environmental health research. We are providing the transparency and integrity of the papers with the open-access model. Moreover, we launched a new journal website last year and developed a new and fresh printed design of the journal. We aim to establish the best platform for the researchers to publish their research papers.
This issue provides peer-reviewed research papers from different fields. For example, Rozman, Strah, and Jevšnik from the National Institute of Public Health of Slovenia and the University of Ljubljana presented interesting results of the case study about using of nudging tools in kindergartens and their contribution to the better implementation of hygienic behaviour in childcare workers and children. Alič and Ovca from the University of Ljubljana had explored shortcomings and potential negative consequences that might occur as unwanted side effects of preventive and control measures implemented worldwide to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2. In research of Bićanić, Mežnarić, and Gobin from the University of Rijeka the anti-Legionella activity of five exotic essential oils and five Mediterranean essential oils characteristic for coastal Croatia was examined. And lastly, Girvan and Mitchell from Liverpool John Moores University had been exploring the knowledge attitudes and perceptions of farmers regarding health and safety in Northern Ireland.
I am grateful to have the ability to work with the multidisciplinary and highly motivated group of editors and reviewers, and the successful researchers who had published their research papers in our journal. Together we are achieving high standards for the journal and the public and environmental health science as well.
On behalf of the editorial board and authors, I wish you a pleasant reading.
