Biological and health effects of radiofrequency fields: Good study design and quality publications

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

16 Scopus citations


During recent decades, researchers have used several different parameters to evaluate the biological and health effects of in vitro and in vivo exposure to non-ionizing radiofrequency fields in animals, humans and their isolated cells. The data reported in many of publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals were reviewed by the international and national expert groups of scientists for human risk assessment of exposure to radiofrequency fields. The criteria used for such assessment depended on the study design, methodology and reporting of the data in the publication. This paper describes the requirements for good study design and quality publications, and provides guidance and a checklist for researchers studying radiofrequency fields and other environmental agents.
