"Environmental Sciences Europe (ESEU) – Bridging Science and Regulation at the Regional and European Level is the first SpringerOpen journal in the entire field of Environmental Sciences. ESEU is an international high-quality journal, focusing primarily on Europe, with a broad scope covering all aspects of environmental sciences and regulation as its main topic. The journal aims to bridge the gap between academia, industry and administrative bodies to report on developments in all aspects of Environmental Sciences, including both basic and applied environmental research, as well as regulatory issues.
ESEU has been developed from the journal Umweltwissenschaften und Schadstoff-Forschung (UWSF), which has been the most influential platform for environmental issues in the German-speaking DACH countries (Germany, Austria and the German-speaking part of Switzerland) for more than two decades.
The journal publishes a broad spectrum of scientific and non-scientific contributions, including reviews, research articles, opinion papers, presentations of projects, institutions and curricula, news on policy and legislation, and news on science and technology, as well as articles from its closely connected societies: SETAC Europe (German language branch), the GDCh Division “Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology,” and the VGöD (Verband für Geoökologie in Deutschland / Association for Geoecology in Germany."
