This journal publishes papers that aid in the development, demonstration, and commercialization of cleaner products and processes as well as effective environmental policy strategies. As its title suggests, the journal has two major thrusts: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy. 

The Clean Technology thrust addresses the science and engineering of clean technologies. Moreover, it examines mathematical and computer-based methods and models for designing, analyzing, and measuring the cleanliness of products and processes. The Environmental Policy thrust covers research advances in scientific, social, behavioral, and economics disciplines that are relevant to complex environmental policy issues. 

In addition to research papers, the journal offers policy-oriented commentaries from world renowned leaders in environmental technology and policy research. It also features special issues focusing on topics of international concern. 

AWARDS
Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy will present the following yearly awards as nominated by the Review board:
1. Best Paper award - The recipient will be awarded a plaque and a onetime monetary prize of
EUR 1000. In the case that the recognized paper has multiple authors, each author will receive a plaque while the prize of EUR 1000 will be shared equally among them.
2. Outstanding Paper award - The recipient(s) will be awarded a plaque.
Members of the editorial board who are nominated for the best paper award will not receive any monetary compensation.

NEW - Brief Reports
A desirable means of reporting innovative methods, tools, processes, and theoretical treatments on aspects of clean technologies or sustainability.  This section is being offered for faster publication of newer developments.  For more information and details please see the instructions for authors in the right menu.

NOTE: Change in Instructions for Authors:
Do not email submissions directly to the Editors-in-Chief. Only those papers that are submitted via the Editorial Manager system (see Submit online button in the right menu) will be considered for review. Original research articles are 10 pages long including all references, tables, figures, and figure legends - 3 submitted pages (double spaced, font size 12) corresponds to 1 printed page consisting of about 800 words - approximately 2 to 3 illustrations (dependent on size) including their legends corresponds to 1 printed page - approximately 45 references corresponds to 1 printed page.

    The journal has two major thrusts: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy. The unique journal covers, in one place, scientific enquiry and innovations related to these two inter-dependent concerns. The concept of sustainable development universally accepted as a means of protecting the environment for all mankind, demands that future manufacturing technologies must be cleaner, yet economically sound.  

    The Clean Technology thrust of the journal will create an international forum for discussing the science and engineering of technologies, and mathematical and computer-based methods and models for designing, analyzing, and measuring cleanliness of products and processes. An additional aspect of this thrust involves the management of environmental systems such as ecosystems, watersheds, and manufacturing networks. Many environmental problems arise in complex scientific, technical, economic and public policy contexts. Consequently, solutions require integration of these contexts.

    The Environmental Policy thrust of the journal will cover advances in research in scientific, social, behavioral, and economics disciplines that are relevant to complex environmental policy issues in fields such as: products, processes and manufacturing networks; wastewater collection and treatment; air pollution control technologies; hazardous toxic waste management; fate and transport of contaminants in the environment; environmental regulations and compliance; pollution prevention; solid waste management; and conservation and environmental protection.

    The journal will provide a forum for experts from different disciplines to share common technical information and offer the opportunity for multi-disciplinary discourse on science, technology and environmental policy that would lead to the development, demonstration, and commercialization of cleaner products and processes and effective environmental policy strategies.

    Some examples of other unique features or activities of the Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy journal include:  

    - Policy-oriented commentaries from world-renowned leaders in environmental technology and policy research.

    - Book reviews, focusing especially on publications on clean technologies and environmental policy.

    - Special issues focusing on a specific topic of international concern. 

    - An award for the best paper to be given periodically.
