The world is changing and the landscape of factories, workshops, and industries also changed. Many of new businesses and job titles did not exist in even ten years ago. In other words, our lifestyles, prosperities, and resources have changed since the last decade. However, on the other side, human beings are encountered with new challenges and hazards. The speed of change in the world is much higher than the change speed in identification, assessment, and regulation of the exposure to new hazardous situations or materials. So, harder work is required on the identification and assessment of these emerging situations to investigate possible unwanted health effects of new technologies and work relationships. On the other side of the coin, the occupational health problems in under-developed and less developed countries are caused by production methods and instruments that in some cases have several centuries of age. Since Asian and Middle East countries are somewhat different from European and North American countries, most of applied studies and health system researches conducted in the former region are not considered valid by the later countries.
Regarding the above mentioned points, Archives of Occupational Health (AOH), is aimed to publish applied studies on all relevant fields about occupational health. The most important issue in this journal is the quality and applicability of the findings. Archives of Occupational Health targets at publishing the high-quality applied researches in the fields of occupational and environmental health and safety, inhalation exposure assessment, method development, ergonomics, and epidemiology. The accepted manuscripts will be published on the journal’s website as well as printed version of the journal in English (However, we are working hard to add Arabic abstract, because one of the most important missions of our journal
is to disseminate the results to the less developed countries, mainly Middle East countries). Our success in this mission largely depends on the kind support of all researchers and practitioners of the relevant fields. We are looking forward to see your valuable manuscripts in AOH.
