Reproductive and other health effects of semiconductor work: the semiconductor health study.
Am J Ind Med 1995 Dec; 28(6):635-637
This issue presents the results of a large, multidisciplinary investigation of reproductive and other health outcomes in the semiconductor industry. Each manuscript has been peer reviewed by reviewers selected by the journal without input from the guest editor or the manuscript authors. Only manuscripts that were found to be acceptable by the reviewers are published in this volume. I am particularly pleased that this volume contains manuscripts covering the broad spectrum of disciplines brought together for this investigation. Juxtaposition of the industrial hygiene exposure assessment papers with manuscripts on laboratory and epidemiologic methods and epidemiologic findings provides an uncommon sequence of articles allowing insight into the diverse disciplines involved in this investigation. It also is of value to the reader wishing to understand the interrelationships of those disciplines in an occupational epidemiology investigation.
