    Aims and Scope


    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.

    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.
