The areas of environmental science and environmental (bio)technology are broad, multidisciplinary, fast growing and extremely active. The last twenty years have seen an overwhelming accumulation of data, and a panoply of important discoveries. It is almost impossible to keep up to date on current developments in these areas, let alone judge their long-term significance.
The purpose of Reviews in Environmental Science and Bio/Technology is twofold: to keep the reader up-to-date on achieved advances in the multidisciplinary and rapidly expanding fields of environmental science and biotechnology, and to offer perspectives on where these developments will lead.
The journal comprises of two distinct peer-reviewed sections: one offering Mini-Reviews expressing scientific opinions on topics and trends, and another presenting comprehensive critical evaluations (Reviews) of research efforts and technical realizations in particular areas. In addition to these two sections, the journal will publish research and policy-oriented commentaries, information on newly initiated research projects, key websites, recent developments in the field presented on international workshops, seminars and symposia, and initiatives from young researchers (science careers).
Reviews in Environmental Science and Bio/Technology accepts electronic multimedia files (animations, movies, audio etc.) and other supplementary files to be published online along with an article. This feature can add dimension to the author's article as certain information cannot be printed or is more convenient in electronic form.
For more information on submission and types of files please see ESM under For authors and editors.
