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):
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.

About the topic:
There is a growing public health concern regarding the adverse environment that impinges on human reproductive health, ranging from impaired fecundity, birth defects, the spread of sexually transmitted diseases, to the timing of puberty. Complications of reproductive function have been reported in communities near industrial sites or built upon redeveloped land. Cumulative exposure to chemical, physical, biological agents, and certain natural risk factors often disproportionally affects the specific population. The interaction of environment and reproductive health is multidimensional. This Special Issue seeks original research papers on the impact of various environmental risk factors on human reproductive health, including but not limited to long- and short-term effects of exposure to air, water, soil pollution, and biological agents on reproductive function. We are also interested in Epidemiological studies demonstrating the link between climate change and its potential reproductive health risks.
