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).

Research interests: Separation technologies for energy applications (e.g., CO2 capture, utilization, storage); energy and environmental sustainability; energy in transportation systems: electric, natural gas, and hybrid vehicles; water use in hydraulic fracturing; environmental impacts of energy production; environmental impacts of various alternate energy (biofuels, wind and nuclear energy) technologies; atmospheric interactions of fogwater and air quality; industrial waste separations; fate and transport of contaminants in the environment

About This Topic

Air pollution and impacts on human and environmental health are topics that have significant interest to the broader community and, most importantly, environmental engineering and science professionals. We are proposing a special issue for the Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research Journal that will focus on Air Pollution and Health. Scope of the special issue will include all air pollution and health-related topics. Some of the topics that will be of interest include; current trends in regulatory aspects across the globe, measurements and modeling issues related to air pollution and quality, air quality standards, and their impact on pollution trends. The impact of the current pandemic and its impact on air pollution and health.
