We believe that the partnership will improve communication in the community of aerosol research and enhance the visibility of the journal internationally. With the support of Springer's international publishing platform, ASE will become a new journal targeting both aerosol science and engineering, sharing information, knowledge and research methods as well as feasible solutions for urgent world challenges like urban air pollution, regional haze as well as global warming. Our goal is to develop Aerosol Science and Engineering into a world-leading academic journal in its field.”
