SJWEH Supplements (ISSN 1795-9926) is published by the national institutes of occupational health in the Nordic countries [the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, the National Institute of Occupational Health (Denmark) and the National Institute of Occupational Health (Norway)] and is a separate publication to its "sister" journal Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment & Health (ISSN 0355-3140). SJWEH Supplements offers a forum for sharing scientific work of a high international standard (eg, original research, reviews, discussion papers) centred on a "theme" of high importance for working life. Since 2005, 7 issues have been published, comprising 89 articles by authors from 26 countries. As it is not possible to dedicate an entire issue of Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment & Health to a thematic issue, SJWEH Supplements plays an important role as a forum to disseminate theme-based scientific papers among the international occupational health community.
The Editor in Chief of SJWEH Supplements is Professor Mikko Härmä and the Assistant Editor in Chief is Professor Eira Viikari-Juntura, both from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health. Dr Petter Kristensen in Norway and Professor Eira Viikari-Juntura are Associate Editors. The peer review process is handled by the guest editor(s) who assigns two or more external reviewers for each article in a double-blind review system. The articles are reviewed again by the Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment & Health editor and an associate editor is assigned to review all the materials before they are published. Each article is then finally edited for language and style.
SJWEH Supplements appears irregularly, but is distributed to the subscribers of the Scandinavian Journal of Work Environment & Health free of charge. Everyone can access its electronic version free of charge from http://www.sjweh.fi/sjwehsupplements.php. SJWEH Supplements is indexed in the ThomsonReuters’ ISI Web of Knowledge database, Google Scholar and the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ).
