Title: Occupational Cancer: From Early Detection to Prevention


Submission Deadline: 31 October 2019

Work contributes significantly to the burden of cancer. Because of the latent nature, it remains difficult to determine the occupational causes and clinically diagnose work-related cancers. Consequently, it often takes decades between the introduction of a substance in the market, the reporting of the first suspected cases, research findings, and finally legal restriction or banning. In this Special Issue, we welcome original and review papers on the relationship between occupational exposures and cancer.

We would like to invite the Modernet members to submit a paper to the special issue. Authors may send us your manuscript now or up until the deadline and the editorial team will arrange prompt peer review. We also encourage authors to send a short abstract and tentative title to the Editorial Office in advance ( 

Manuscripts should be submitted through the online editorial system at Authors need to choose IJERPH as the journal title and then *Occupational Cancer: From Early Detection to Prevention* as the special issue title. For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors at the journal’s website:
