Atmospheric Environment

Atmospheric Environment

Atmospheric Environment has an open access mirror journal Atmospheric Environment: X, sharing the same aims and scope, editorial team, submission system and rigorous peer review.

Atmospheric Environment is the international journal for scientists in different disciplines related to atmospheric composition and its impacts. The journal publishes scientific articles with atmospheric relevance of emissions and depositions of gaseous and particulate compounds, chemical processes and physical effects in the atmosphere, as well as impacts of the changing atmospheric composition on human health, air quality, climate change, and ecosystems.

Atmospheric Environment publishes original research and review articles, special issues, supplements, and New Directions columns. The articles should be of general relevance and novelty in terms of atmospheric observations, process studies, modeling, and data analysis.

Environmental Policy

• Validation of Emission Reductions

• Mitigation Strategies

The scope of Atmospheric Environment has atmospheric composition and impacts as its core theme. We would like to encourage scientists to submit high quality articles of sufficient novelty, contributing to atmospheric science and its implications for the environment and policy. Three fundamental questions help the Editors in reaching a decision on whether to send a paper out for review:

1. Scope - is the work directly or implicitly related to atmospheric composition?

2. Novelty - does the work provide a) a general and/or broader relevance (e.g. not a pure local study), b) new results or methods, and c) does it add significantly to the knowledge of atmospheric composition and its impacts?

3. Quality - does the work contain high quality a) atmospheric observations, b) process studies, c) modeling exercises or d) data analysis?

Will your paper be within the scope of Atmospheric Environment?

We try to be flexible with novel scientific articles on issues of atmospheric composition even, if they are not directly related to atmospheric measurements (e.g. wind tunnel studies, dynamometer studies, remote sensing retrieval, etc). However, we are still cautious of purely mathematical derivations, preliminary results or insignificant case and local studies. The authors should make sure that the articles contain substantial contributions to the science of atmospheric composition before sending them for review.
