About Occupational and Environmental Medicine
Aims and scope
Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) is an international peer reviewed journal covering occupational and environmental
health. We aim to be the definitive source for current information on occupational and environmental health worldwide.
OEM welcomes original research submissions which relate to the full range of chemical, physical, ergonomic, biological and psychosocial hazards in the workplace and to environmental contaminants and their health effects. Research aimed at improving the evidence-based practice of occupational medicine and research on the development and application of novel methods, including biological and statistical techniques, is also of interest. In addition, we publish systematic reviews, editorials, commentaries and letters to the editor, which provide a forum for debate.
OEM is adopted as the official journal of the Faculty of Occupational Medicine of the Royal College of Physicians of London.
Occupational and Environmental Medicine is owned by the BMJ Group.
