Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, case report, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

Indexing: COPE.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2020, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

In 2016, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that more than 80% of urban areas had levels of air pollution higher than the limits it recommends for health reasons. For low and middle income countries that figure rockets to 98%. Urban air pollution is clearly a growing problem. Approximately 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas today, and this proportion is expected to increase to 66% by 2050. The hope is that improved knowledge of the health effects of individual pollutants cou-pled with a much better idea of where these pollutants come from will eventually help direct more in-formed air policy decisions and ultimately improve human health. Air pollution is known to increase the risk of many diseases including respiratory conditions, heart disease, stroke and cancers. There is a great need to advance our scientific understanding of air pollution in urban areas to improve air quality and protect public health. This Special Issue invites submissions of novel and original papers and reviews on urban air pollution, including but not limited to the following topics:

• Quantification of pollutant emissions at urban scales
• In situ and satellite-based observations of trace gases and particulates
• Air pollution meteorology
• Air quality modeling
• Pollution transport between urban and regional scales
• Pollution control measures and policies.

Keywords: urban; air pollution; emissions; environmental economics; energy economics; Environmental Kuznets Curve (EKC); transport.
