What Your Colleagues Say About Environmental Health Insights
My experience in publishing with Environmental Health Insights was positive from the beginning of the initial manuscript submittal, to the published product. The peer reviewers provided helpful suggestions, while the editorial  and production staff kept me fully informed of the paper's process every step of the way.  I recommend Libertas Academica for anyone that is serious about publishing their research in an efficient, friendly and professional manner.
