Editorial - Welcome to the ‘real world’

Chris DayIn prefacing the third issue of the Journal of Environmental Health Research under my editorship, I would wish to begin with an apology and finish with some acknowledgements. My apology is for making this the first and only edition of JEHR in 2015. I sincerely hope to report that we manage two editions in 2016, and it is certainly my aim that the Journal should appear on a quarterly basis before too long.

Naturally, work in the JEHR should reflect good scholarship, particularly when the research behind it is more fundamental and less applied. However, the JEHR is particularly keen to publish and promote the work of those in environmental health who are actively working in the field. Such papers add to the body of knowledge on a subject and serve to establish the impact of interventions that are so vital in demonstrating the professional worth of the profession and its practitioners.

On behalf of the Editorial Board I should like to encourage those who have not yet considered writing about their experiences and the insights gained from ‘doing the job’ to do so and to seek publication here in JEHR. For, it is through research in these naturalistic settings, that we are enriched and enlightened, and ultimately we can build the firm evidence-base so important to improving the health and well-being of others.
