Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
Ocean Modelling, Volume 183, June 2023
This paper is particularly relevant to investigations into the spread of organisms that remain close to shore over timescales of days-to-weeks, e.g., the spread of marine non-native species and pathogenetic parasites, but is equally relevant to simulations tracking the dispersal of eDNA or coastal pollutants such as oil and plastics.

New Horizons in Natural Compound Research: Progress in Biochemistry and Biotechnology - Chapter 14: Marine microalgae: an emerging source of pharmaceuticals and bioactive compounds
New Horizons in Natural Compound Research, 2023, pp 251-265
This chapter aligns with Goal 14: Life Below Water and Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing by highlighting some of the many beneficial industrial and pharmaceutical applications of marine microalgae.
International Journal of Clinical and Health Psychology, Volume 23, 1 April 2023
The study shows that resource variables are relevant for understanding the situation of cancer patients. Clinicians who notice low levels of sense of coherence, resilience, or optimisms in their patients will be better prepared for identifying patients in need for interventions. Especially younger patients deserve special attention.
The New Public Health (Fourth Edition), 2023, Pages 1097-1158
This chapter advances the UN SDG Goal 3: Good Health and Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities. It examines the globalization of health as there is increase focus on the international transfer of diseases and the imperative of cooperating to combat inequity under societal conditions that create the spread of diseases and their effects on individual nations and the global community.
A critical review of the current progress of plastic waste recycling technology in structural materials
Current Opinion in Green and Sustainable Chemistry, Volume 40, April 2023
This review artcile, with contributionsform allover the world, describes various approaches to convert plastic wastes into new products known as an efficient way to manage them and to enhance the sustainability of the environment.
Environment International, Volume 174, April 2023
The current review on atmospheric M/NPs is therefore focusing on sampling, sample preparation and identification methods. The approach will enable knowledge gaps to be identified, and recommendations to be made to support standardized and comparable future research
Production and characterization of liquid oil from the pyrolysis of waste high-density polyethylene plastics using spent fluid catalytic cracking catalyst
Sustainable Chemistry for Climate Action, Volume 2, 2023, 00020
The article describes how to turn waste plastics into high-quality liquid oils by thermal and catalytic pyrolysis.
Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22nd every year to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The theme for Earth day 2023 is Invest In Our Planet. Elsevier is proud to highlight these freely accessible book chapters and journal articles in honour of this event.
Nutrition research benefits from broad and intensive participation by stakeholders. The articles in this special issue demonstrate that understanding participation is complex because it incorporates the dimensions of stakeholders, activity, time, and intensity. Early involvement in research can help prioritize the problems to be addressed, refine the specific research question, and determine acceptable community-based approaches to be used in an intervention. The included papers provide insight into how to define and measure participation, how to explore approaches to encourage participation of direct and indirect beneficiaries, and how participation at different time points and by different stakeholders can validate and support interventions and enhance effectiveness.
