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, 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.


Archiving: full-text archived in CLOCKSS.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 12 days from acceptance to publication (median values for papers published in this journal in 2021, 1-2 days of FREE language polishing time is also included in this period).

About This Topic

Increasing global fossil energy use over the last century has caused serious negative impacts on the climate in various ways. This includes: the increased average temperature of the earth, increased greenhouse gas emissions, pollution, water scarcity, weather pattern, deterioration of public health etc. This has forced researchers, scientists, and policymakers to consider and implement distinct climate change policies to minimize greenhouse gas emissions. Economic consideration plays a crucial role in the implementation of new climate change policies. This special issue calls for research contributions on the impact of natural and human-made activities on climate change and how economic analysis can contribute to successful development and integration of such climate change policies at all scales from the local to global. Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives from around the world are welcome in all areas pertinent to the topic.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once registered and activated, please click here to go to the submission form. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on Instructions for Authors.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are highly invited. For planned papers, a tentative title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office ( for record. Welcome your submission!
