Environmental Monitoring and Assessment

An International Journal Devoted to Progress in the Use of Monitoring Data in Assessing Environmental Risks to Man and the Environment

Editor-in-Chief: G. B. Wiersma

ISSN: 0167-6369 (print version)
ISSN: 1573-2959 (electronic version)

Journal no. 10661

Springer Open Access
  • Covers design and development of monitoring systems
  • Describes methods and procedures for pollution risk assessment
  • Examines the synthesis of monitoring data with toxicological, epidemiological and health data
  • Managing Editor: G. Bruce Wiersma, College of Natural Resources, Forestry, and Agriculture, University of Maine, USA
  • 96% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Environmental Monitoring and Assessment discusses technical developments and data arising from environmental monitoring and assessment, principles in the design of monitoring systems, and the use of monitoring data in assessing the consequences of natural resource management and pollution risks.
The journal examines monitoring systems designed to estimate exposure both at the individual and population levels, and also focuses on the development of monitoring systems related to the management of various renewable natural resources in, for instance, agriculture, fisheries and forests.
Coverage extends to the use of monitoring in pollution assessment, and particular emphasis is given to the synthesis of monitoring data with toxicological, epidemiological and health data, as well as with pre-market screening results.

High quality research papers or reviews dealing with any aspect of environmental monitoring are encouraged. However, papers should not be submitted that do not advance scientific knowledge on environmental monitoring issues. Articles that simply replicate known knowledge or techniques and do not add anything new or unique to the science will normally be rejected.

See full Aims and Scope for more details.

The Managing Editor is G. Bruce Wiersma, Center for Research on Sustainable Forests, University of Maine, USA.

As only the Managing Editor can decide at submission whether an article is suitable for consideration in the journal,  if the author has reviewed the Aims and Scope and feels that it falls within the description, please submit the article following the normal procedures. If the article is deemed unsuitable, the author will be informed.

 

The journal publishes original research papers, review papers and Letters to the Editor.

 

General Details on the Submission and Publication Procedures:
-No Page Charges
-All articles accepted after February 1, 2014 will have free color online and in print.

-Optional Open Access Publication Fee (APC): USD 3000 / Euro 2200 plus tax per article

    Close

    Environmental Monitoring and Assessment emphasizes technical developments and data arising from environmental monitoring and assessment, the use of scientific principles in the design of monitoring systems at the local, regional and global scales, and the use of monitoring data in assessing the consequences of natural resource management actions and pollution risks to man and the environment.

    The journal covers a wide range of pollutants and examines monitoring systems designed to estimate exposure both at the individual and population levels. The journal also focuses on the development of monitoring systems related to the management of various renewable natural resources in, for instance, agriculture, fisheries and forests.

    The scope of the journal extends to the use of monitoring in pollution assessment, and particular emphasis is given to the synthesis of monitoring data with toxicological, epidemiological and health data, as well as with pre-market screening results.

    The journal also includes research and monitoring systems that help assess anthropogenic impacts on natural resources and the environment from numerous activities, such as harvesting, development, and land use changes. Geographic information system analyses and remote sensing studies relating such activities to land cover changes that affect, e.g. biodiversity and global climate change are also within the purview of the journal.

    Examples of specific areas of interest are:

    The design and development of single medium and multimedia monitoring systems, sampling techniques, optimization of monitoring networks, data handling, quality and assurance procedures, operational costs.
    The scientific basis for monitoring: scaling methods, the use of biological indicators, dynamic and commitment models, pollution indices, etc.
    Exposure assessment: the development of monitoring systems which allow direct or indirect estimates of pollutant exposure to critical receptors.
    Methods and procedures of pollution risk assessment, relating to sources, pathways of exposure, trends in time and space, anticipatory systems, evaluation of environmental quality and of management practice.
    Monitoring systems designed to detect changes in land use patterns.
