The Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T) family of environmental journals is getting two new members in 2020: ACS ES&T Water and ACS ES&T Engineering. The launch of these two journals reflects the growing role of environmental science and technology in the chemistry field and in our daily lives. With more scientific attention and public interest focused on the effects of Earth’s changing environment, significantly more research is being conducted around the world into the environmental challenges and opportunities impacting us now and in the future.
ACS ES&T Engineering will publish experimental and theoretical research in the interdisciplinary areas of environmental technology, engineering, and chemistry. This will include new insights and advances in environmental engineering research and technological innovation. The journal seeks original research on the development of sustainable engineering solutions to protect the environment and remediate the risks of hazardous materials and pollutants. Its primary focus is on all engineering-related systems in environmental chemistry and technology.
ACS ES&T Water will publish original, high-quality peer-reviewed research on the broad topic of water quality and anthropogenic and geogenic contaminants, as well as the environmental chemistry and technology for sustainable water management and reuse. Its multidisciplinary water-research focus will welcome all water-related environmental chemistry and technology papers.
ES&T is the most-cited journal in its field, publishing a wide variety of environmental research. The new journals continue ACS Publications’ more than 50-year commitment to the best in environmental science, while offering researchers in two burgeoning fields a dedicated home for their research.
“Environmental science is among the fastest-growing areas of scientific research,” says James Milne, Ph.D., acting president, ACS Publications Division. “ACS ES&T Water and ACS ES&T Engineering will allow us to better serve the community’s need for the highest quality research in these areas, while maintaining Environmental Science & Technology as the leading publication in its field.”
Both journals will begin to accept submissions in the spring of 2020.
