Environmental Chemistry publishes manuscripts addressing the chemistry of the environment (air, water, soil, sediments, space, and biota). The scope encompasses atmospheric chemistry, (bio)geochemistry, climate change, marine chemistry, water chemistry, polar chemistry, fire chemistry, astrochemistry, earth and geochemistry, soil and sediment chemistry and chemical toxicology. The journal aims to facilitate links between these aspects of environmental science, and thus papers that are multidisciplinary, and papers that view the environment as an integrated earth system, are particularly encouraged.
While focussing on the publication of important new original research and timely reviews, the journal also publishes essays and opinion pieces on issues of importance to environmental scientists, such as policy and funding.
Papers should be written in a style that is accessible to those outside the field, as the readership will include - in addition to chemists - biologists, toxicologists, soil scientists, and workers from government and industrial institutions. All manuscripts are rigorously peer-reviewed and professionally copy-edited.
The journal is published in print and online six times per year, online information being updated more frequently and containing information on papers in press.
