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.
Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 12 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).

About This Topic
Land-cover and land-use changes have both natural and anthropogenic causes. Landslides, flooding, volcanic eruptions, and wildfires as well as glaciation of landmasses and receding of ice shields are natural disturbances by the processes of the of the Earth system and its orbital parameters. Anthropogenic changes are deforestation for agricultural use and grazing of life stock for food and clothing, construction of water reservoirs and usage of blue water, mining for raw material, afforestation and urbanization for shelter. While these anthropogenic land-cover and land-use changes serve the benefits and prosperity of humankind, they like the natural changes alter the water, energy and trace-gas cycles and their interaction at the interface Earth-atmosphere via the exchanges of sensible and latent heat and matter.
Due to the more than quadrupling of the Earth population such changes have accelerated over the last century and are anticipated to further increase in the future. This special issue calls for contributions from research on the impact of all kind of Earth surface changes on the atmospheric water, energy and trace gas cycle at all scales from the urban to planetary scale. Papers on urban forest, green and white roofs for improved thermal comfort, coastal urbanization as well as on improved agricultural, grazing and fire protection practices are of special interest.
Original research reports, review articles, communications, and perspectives are welcome in all areas pertinent to the topic. All accepted papers will be published totally free of charge.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.lidsen.com/account-login by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.
