If an employee is applying pesticides as part of their job duties, that employee should complete the OSU Employee Health Registry and indicate they are exposed to pesticides. This will kick off the annual employee physical process. If the employee is licensed and trained, then the employee would be covered as a university employee wherever he/she is performing official job duties. If an accident happened where the employee was injured, it would be a worker’s compensation issue which is managed by HR.
The link for the Employee Health Registry is: https://rf.osu.edu/secure/ochre/
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Amy Burns in College HR.

Publishing in peer reviewed outlets benefits all of us, and is a requirement for those in faculty positions. It not only provides peer review validation for the quality of your work, but increases the body of knowledge in your subject area, and helps to build your national and international reputation. That reputation is important for promotion to associate and full professor. Below is information on some journals which may be appropriate outlets for ANR activities and projects. If you know of other journals, let me know so I can add them to the list.
Journal of Food Distribution Research
The Journal of Food Distribution Research has an applied, problem-oriented focus. The Journal’s emphasis is on the flow of products and services through the food wholesale and retail distribution system. Related areas of interest include patterns of consumption, impacts of technology on processing and manufacturing, packaging and transport, data and information systems in the food and agricultural industry, market development, and international trade in food products and agricultural commodities. Business and agricultural and applied economic applications are encouraged.
Acceptable methodologies include survey, review, and critique; analysis and syntheses of previous research; econometric or other statistical analysis; and case studies. Teaching cases will be considered. Issues on special topics may be published based on requests or on the editor’s initiative. Potential usefulness to a broad range of agricultural and business economists is an important criterion for publication.
The Journal of Food Distribution Research is refereed and published three times each year by the Society. The March issue is dedicated to the proceedings from the previous annual FDRS conference, and the July and November issues contain refereed articles.
