New Journals in Environmental Science and Health
We are pleased to inform you we have recently launched five new peer-reviewed titles in the Environmental Science and Health portfolio.
Groundwater for Sustainable Development
Groundwater for Sustainable Development aims to be a platform for sharing knowledge and experience on groundwater matters on a worldwide scale and across disciplines is an effective strategy to identify and promote optimal approaches to the assessment, development and management of groundwater resources.
It is aimed at professionals, academics and students in the fields of disciplines such as: groundwater and its connection to surface hydrology and environment, soil sciences, engineering, ecology, microbiology, atmospheric sciences, analytical chemistry, hydro-engineering, water technology, environmental ethics, economics, public health, policy, as well as social sciences, legal disciplines, or any other area connected with water issues.

An International Journal of NanoSafety Research
NanoImpact is a multidisciplinary journal that focuses on nanosafety research and areas related to the impacts of manufactured nanomaterials on human and environmental systems and the behavior of nanomaterials in these systems. As such it will publish in the following areas:
- Human Nanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on human health;
- Econanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on organism and ecosystem health;
- Exposure - nanomaterial release, fate and behavior in the environment and human/engineered systems;
- Risk assessment and life-cycle analysis

Sustainable Chemistry and Pharmacy
Sustainable Chemistry and Pharmacy publishes research that is related to chemistry, pharmacy and sustainability science in a forward oriented manner. It provides a unique forum for the publication of innovative research on the intersection and overlap of chemistry and pharmacy on the one hand and sustainability on the other hand.

Environmental Technology & Innovation
This new journal will focus on a challenge-oriented approach to solutions that will bring together excellent natural sciences, which underpin the development and application of technologies, to understand and deliver a sustainable future. We recognize the need to encourage and disseminate the creation and development of new innovative products, technologies and ideas that improve our environment. Sectors of impact include soil, air, water and food in both rural and urban landscapes.

Environmental Nanotechnology, Monitoring and Management
Environmental Nanotechnology, Monitoring and Management is a journal devoted to the publication of peer reviewed original research on environmental nanotechnologies, monitoring studies and management for water, soil , waste and human health samples. Critical review articles, short communications and scientific policy briefs are also welcome. The journal will include all environmental matrices except air. Nanomaterials were suggested as efficient cost-effective and environmental friendly alternative to existing treatment materials, from the standpoints of both resource conservation and environmental remediation.
