Publication of New Solutions Special Issue “Social Science-Environmental Health Collaborations”


We’re pleased to announce that New Solutions has just published its special issue on “Social Science-Environmental Health Collaborations” that stems from an NIEHS-sponsored conference held in May 2015 at Northeastern University. We’re especially happy that much of the work stems from NIEHS-funded projects and from NIEHS officials. The special issue also includes contributions from a number of SSEHRI members: articles by Phil Brown, Jacob Matz and Sara Wylie; an interview conducted by Lourdes Vera; and a book review by Elisabeth Wilder.

Please note that four of the articles are free for two months: Wylie et al. “Inspiring Collaboration: The Legacy of Theo Colborn’s Transdisciplinary Research on Fracking”, Finn and Collman “The Pivotal Role of the Social Sciences in Environmental Health Sciences Research”, Korfmacher et al. “Collaborating for Systems Change: A Social Science Framework for Academic Roles in Community Partnerships”, and Vera “Community Health Impacts from Oil and Gas Development in Texas: The Perspective of Sharon Wilson”.
