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, case report, 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.

Indexing: COPE.

Rapid publication: manuscripts are undertaken in 11 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

Engineering, as a discipline and a profession, is central to tackling global societal challenges demanded by sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals. Radical collaboration among students, academics and practitioners with multiple stakeholders in business, the professions and the community are urgently needed with important work already underway.

Engineers will need to combine technical competence with an understanding of social and environmental impacts. As such, pursuing sustainable development will require transformation of engineering education, interdisciplinary research and innovation ecosystems. Locally-rooted and globally connected, engineering solutions will need to be delivered at speed and scale.

This Special Issue, dedicated to publishing impactful research on ‘Sustainable Development and the Environment’, will bring together academic papers based on engineering for societal impact. Highlighting case studies, field studies, community-based innovation, user-led studies, advances in curriculum and pedagogic practice, and studies in engineering with impact, the Special Issue seeks to promote engineering for sustainable development.

Thank you for considering this Special Issue to share your research findings. We look forward to receiving your manuscript by January 15, 2022.
