    Aims and Scope


    Environmental Chemistry Letters is located at the interfaces of geology, chemistry, physics and biology. Articles are of high importance to the study of natural and engineered environments. Environmental Chemistry Letters publishes original and review articles of outstanding significance in the following fields:

    - Characterisation of natural and affected environments;
    - Behaviour, prevention, treatment and control of mineral, organic and radioactive pollutants;
    - Interfacial studies involving media such as soil, sediment, water, air, organism, and food;
    - Green chemistry, environmentally friendly synthetic pathways, and alternative fuels;
    - Ecotoxicology and risk assessment;
    - Environmental processes and modelling;
    - Environmental technologies, remediation and control;
    - Environmental analytical chemistry, biomolecular tools and tracers e.g. stable isotopes

This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
