PREFACE
A
s with the previous collections,
Children’s Health Collection 2012
comprises all relevant articles published in
EHP 
 from the October 2011 issue (devoted mostly to Children’s Health) through September 2012: peer-reviewedresearch articles (including reviews and commentaries), news articles, Science Selections, editorials, and podcasts.Each abstract contains a hyperlink to take readers directly to the full article on our website (http://www.ehponline.org).Each article can be searched by author, key word, or phrase, and additional research previously published can also beeasily accessed. The collection includes not only research that has appeared in the Children’s Health section of 
EHP,
but also articlesconcerning adult–child cohorts, early origins of adult disease, experimental studies with direct application to children’shealth, and related topics of interest (e.g., regulatory standards, food safety). This collection contains some changes from previous years: Instead of summaries, full abstracts of the research articles areprovided. And a new main category—Methodologies and Populations—has been added. With new cohort descriptions,tools for understanding biomarkers and epigenetics, and community and translational studies, the new category addsanother dimension to the literature on outcomes and exposures.One new topic—obesity—reflects an unfortunate trend, as does the growth in research on natural disasters andtheir health effects, locally and globally. On the other hand, research on biomarkers, mechanisms, and epigenetics isincreasingly able to identify critical windows of developmental vulnerability, responses to early-life exposures, andpossible mediations. Greater understanding of the specifics of timing and type of exposure and multiple epigeneticcharacteristics and responses should, we hope, increase our ability to protect our children’s health.As
EHP 
moves to an online-only format in January 2013, we will continue to provide full coverage of news and research inall areas of children’s environmental health.
