Newsletter No. 3 - ISEE-ISES-ISIAQ / Environment and Health - Basel 2013  

Dear reader,

The Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) is pleased to send you Newsletter No. 3 from the ISEE- ISES-ISIAQ/Environment & Health Conference 2013 in Basel, Switzerland.

1) The Call for SYMPOSIA has been extended to Dec 14, 2012 - see instructions on website.

2) Submit a REVIEW to IJPH - and compete for a TRAVEL AWARD!

The International Journal of Public Health (IJPH) (Impact Factor 2011: 2.539) invites you to submit a REVIEW on an internationally relevant public health topic that relates to any research domain of the ISEE- ISES-ISIAQ/Environment & Health Conference 2013 in Basel. The winner of the best review article will receive a travel award that also includes the conference fees, publishing costs for an "open access" article and local expenses. To make the process most efficient, the Editors-in-Chief will make a pre-decision: Please send an email to with the SUBJECT TITLE "Call for Review IJPH" containing the tentative title, the leading author(s) / institutions, a brief description of the topic, a sentence on why your review should be considered, and a methods statement (e.g. full systematic review; only last 10 years etc.).

Manuscripts submitted by April 1, 2013 will participate in the competition. Author's guidelines apply. Passing the pre-decision does not guarantee acceptance of the final manuscript. Usual peer review rules apply. Successful review articles will be accepted ("on-line first") no later than the opening of the Basel conference.

On behalf of Swiss TPH and the International Organization Committee of ISEE, ISES, and ISIAQ we send you our very best regards,

Nino Künzli, Chair of the Conference, Deputy Director Swiss TPH
Martin Röösli, Co-Chair of the Conference and Unit Head at Swiss TPH
