The Earth Systems and Environment (ESEV) journal publishes peer-reviewed original and review articles on the entire range of Earth systems and environment in order to further our understanding of the natural workings and various processes and interactions that govern the Earth systems in response to complex environmental problems caused by natural and human-induced forcings.

The journal disseminates high-quality information on cutting-edge developments in the various research fields of Earth Systems and environment based on new methods, theories, and applications. It has a multidisciplinary character, focusing on interrelated scientific topics combining diverse aspects of the Earth systems and environment including: the Earth sciences; environmental sciences; Earth and environment related agricultural sciences; natural hazards and engineering; marine sciences; ecology; desertification; pollution; geo-environmental hazards; droughts and floods; hydrosphere, lithosphere and troposphere dynamics; waste management; numerical models of earth systems; geographical information systems; remote sensing; and environmental health.

In order to meaningfully explore these topics, researchers in the environmental Earth science disciplines are invited to contribute their original research and review articles on significant scientific advances in the form of papers, technical notes, broad reports, case studies, reviews, brief communications and discussions.

Earth Systems and Environment is committed to upholding the integrity of the scientific record. As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) the journal will follow the COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential acts of misconduct. Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage the trust in the journal and ultimately the entire scientific endeavour. Maintaining integrity of the research and its presentation can be achieved by following the rules of good scientific practice as detailed here:
