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

Urbanization, is an ongoing process that takes place under a global domain. This has advantages such as promoting economic development and information exchange, but at the same time has also disadvantages such as soaring prices and worsening uneven distribution of wealth. Phenomena in cities are extremely multifaceted with complex intertwining factors, and many of the problems that cities face are not easy to solve. In an advanced information society, it is essential to collect and effectively utilize data in order to understand urbanization issues and deal with them in the future. In the special issue of ''Urban and Geographical Information,'' we would like to consider location-related information collectively as geographic information, and explore the possibilities of approaches that can use geographic information to enrich the activities of people and authorities' management withing the cities vicinity. Subject areas may include, but are not limited to:

- Smart Sustainable Cities
- Geographic Information System
- Urban Design and Visualization
- Web Mapping
- Mobility as a Service
- Remote Sensing
- Spatial Data Science
- Citizen Science
