Environmental Pollution - ISSN 0269-7491
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.805 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.968 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 6.792 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 6.939 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Environmental Pollution is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes high quality research papers and review articles about all aspects of environmental pollution and its effects on ecosystems and human health. The journal welcomes high-quality process-oriented and hypothesis-based submissions that report results from original and novel research and contribute new knowledge to help address problems related to environmental pollution at a regional or global scale.

Subject areas include, but are not limited to:
• Sources and occurrences of pollutants that are clearly defined and measured in environmental compartments, food and food-related items, and human bodies;
• Interlinks between contaminant exposure and biological, ecological, and human health effects, including those of climate change;
• Contaminants of emerging concerns (including but not limited to antibiotic resistant microorganisms or genes, microplastics/nanoplastics, electronic wastes, light, and noise) and/or their biological, ecological, or human health effects;
• Laboratory and field studies on the remediation/mitigation of environmental pollution via new techniques and with clear links to biological, ecological, or human health effects;
Modeling of pollution processes, patterns, or trends that is of clear environmental and/or human health interest;
New techniques that measure and examine environmental occurrences, transport, behavior, and effects of pollutants within the environment or the laboratory, provided that they can be clearly used to address problems within regional or global environmental compartments.

Papers focusing on the following areas are likely to be returned to the authors without review:
• Routine surveys or monitoring programs primarily of local or regional interest;
• Descriptions of well-known contaminants, such as legacy pollutants, in yet another location;
• Studies relating to waste treatment that do not have specific relevance to pollution within the environment;
• Synthesis/fabrication of new materials solely for remediation and/or mitigation of pollution without any direct environmental relevance;
• Nitrogen or phosphorus deposition or biogeochemical processes with little or no relation to environmental consequences and/or climate change;
• Studies on eutrophication and secondary pollution by eutrophication without illuminating their governing mechanisms and factors.
