Environmental Science and Pollution Research (ESPR) serves the international community in all areas of Environmental Science and related subjects with emphasis on chemical compounds. It reports from a broad interdisciplinary outlook. Apart from the strictly scientific contributions as research articles (short and full papers) and reviews, ESPR publishes: news & views from research and technology, legislation and regulation, hardware and software, education, literature, institutions, organizations, conferences.

Editorial Policy
For maximum benefit to the environmental community, the journal has the following features:

ESPR represents the international perspective, with emphasis on the natural sciences but also includes the impacts of legislation, regulation, and the economy on pollution control; and
ESPR articles are generally chemically oriented but cover all the broad areas within environmental science.
ESPR was conceived as a truly international scientific journal.

Information from ESPR should also be useful for planning lectures and university environmental curricula. A global network of editorial board members represents a variety of disciplines and groups of interest: university, industry, administrative bodies, government, consulting companies, public interest groups. The Editorial Board safeguards the international and interdisciplinary character of the journal and ensures appropriate refereeing procedures (peer review).
