  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    Nanotechnology for Environmental Engineering is an international peer reviewed interdisciplinary journal that focuses on publishing original research articles, critical reviews, short communications, policy papers, and mini-reviews in the following topics:

    1. Application of nanotechnology for substantial benefits of environment.

    2. Nano-engineering approach for improved environmental strategies for a better protection of human and environmental health.

    3. Emerging strategic plans/ideas of bio-nanotechnology origin including green chemistry approach (e.g. green synthesis), molecular biology methods and chemical processes (fate determination of trace metals).

    4. Biocompatibility/Cytocompatibility of nanostructured materials intended for environmental applications. Both in vitro and in vivo bioassays oriented credentials will be prioritized to scientific theoretical acceptance/validity.

    5. Point of origin of environmental engineering in a mutual feedback manner to nanotechnological application for environmental problems. 

    6. Bio-nanotechnological elemental approach being set at transition stage (including pros and cons) with scope of environmental applications.

    7. Renovated theme (engineering approach) with better skills for process engineering applications.

    8. Quantitative and qualitative assessment of nanotechnological/environmental engineering methodology on practical scenario (i.e. mechanistic interpretation but not empirical evidence) basis.

    9. Global phenomenon/acceptance of innovativeness of well explored ideas with a broader application in nanotechnology and environmental engineering.

    10. Public Policy of environmental engineering with respect to safety and sustainability. 

    11. Biological/chemical/thermal conversion of agro-industrial waste into chemicals and fuels.

    12. Engineering approach for biological/chemical treatment of environmental pollutant.

    13. Engineering innovation in environmental monitoring of emerging contaminants.

    14. Nanotechnology in pre-concentration of environmental samples.

    15. Techno-economical aspects of environmental engineering and nanotechnology processes.

    Continuous Article Publishing
    Nanotechnology for Environmental Engineering is a Springer's international journal that will start publishing in March 2016 under the Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. Publishing the journal in CAP means that each article will be published including a volume number and an article citation number, shortly after receipt of authors proofs. This will support shortened publication time.
