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 variety of article types (Original Research, Review, Communication, Opinion, 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 This Topic

The relationship between the environment and physical and sports activities (PSAs) is becoming a key issue for our society and our political and sports bodies. The effect of global warming on PSAs and the influence of PSAs on natural areas are just two examples. This relationship between (PSAs) and environment can therefore be questioned in two ways: (1) What is the impact of environmental components (of all kinds) on PSAs actors, their actions and the way they operate? (2) What is the influence of PSAs (at different scales) on environmental components (e.g., nature)?

The objective of our special issue is to study the relationship between PSAs and the environment in its physical and social dimensions, by shedding light on the processes (psychological, social, managerial, historical, geographical…) that govern this relationship.

The scientific proposals will be at the crossroads of sport psychology and environmental psychology. Works in social and human sciences (e.g., sociology, management, geography, history, etc.) will also be welcome. From an interdisciplinary perspective, investigations combining a multi-field perspective will be appreciated.
