IJEP provides an international forum in the field of environment and pollution and addresses early and medium-term challenges involving scientific prediction, modelling and assessment. It focuses on ground-breaking research in the science of environmental pollution, at the early scientific stage. It is one of three key journals which together offer complete coverage of environmental issues: IJETM focuses on technical/engineering, policy and management solutions for environmental problems, and IJGEnvI focuses on future, longer-term environmental scenarios, ecological economics, climate change and biodiversity.
Topics covered include
- Review and assessment of policies
- Strategy for policy making
- Formulation of national/international environmental protection policy
- Comparative legal aspects of pollution
- Assessment of risks from water, soil and air pollution; effective and viable remedies
- Protection of soil and groundwater
- Ecosystem research
- Waste disposal strategies
- Ecological impact of pollutants
- Clean technologies
- Technological hazards
- Evaluation of environmental risk and safety
- Environment and sustainable development
- Environmental education and training
The objectives of IJEP are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies academics and research institutions and persons concerned with the complex issues of environment and pollution, and to provide a forum for them to disseminate information and to learn from each other|s work. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological change and changes in the global economy.
Professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers.
IJEP publishes original and review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, and notes, commentaries and news. Contribution may be by submission or invitation, and suggestions for special issues and publications are welcome.
