Aims and Scope

The Environment publishes papers that report results from original, novel research that addresses significant environmental issues and problems and contribute new knowledge to science.

The editors welcome high quality papers where the environmental issues are clearly defined in measurable terms and can be directly related to biological, ecological, and human health effects. Papers related to new techniques for the study are also encouraged as well as papers on new types of environmental challenges such as different kind of pollution, monitoring, impact and remediation. Emerging pollution are of eminent interest as long as they can clearly be related to the biological effects mentioned above. Papers must be process-orientated and/or hypotheses-based. Papers based on field studies are given priority for publication.

Papers, such as meta analyses, that report findings from re-examination and interpretation of existing data are welcome. Critical review papers and commentaries are also of high interest as are letters to the editor. Papers about environment monitoring, impact assessment, eco-toxicology, environmental microbiology, biotechnology and remediation having significant relevance are acceptable. Likewise, papers on innovative techniques to combat regional or global problems are welcome.

Articles submitted for publication should establish connections among research findings with implications for environmental quality, ecological health, and/or human health.

The editors welcome the following contributions:

Full research papers: Results from completed investigations reporting original and previously unpublished work.

Short communications: A brief communication of urgent matter or the reporting of preliminary findings to be given expedited publication.

Review papers: In-depth critical reviews of special subjects.

Commentaries: Opinions and concerns about current scientific issues.

Letters to the Editor: Short focused letters to raise issues or concerns about papers published in the journal and solicit a reply from the authors of those papers.

Special Issues. Special Issues will be published on emerging thematic issues and innovative conferences. An Editor or Associate Editor should be contacted early in the conference planning process to get approval and for guidelines on special issues of the journal.
