Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology publishes studies that examine the environmental chemistry (distribution, dynamics and fate) of pollutants, the biologic and toxic effects of man-made chemical pollutants on ecotoxicological animal models and plants.
Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology has the following sections:
- Environmental Chemistry
- Environmental Remediation Strategies
- Ecological Risk Assessment
Studies of emerging environmental chemicals and novel methods for the analysis of emerging environmental chemicals are of interest to the journal. Interdisciplinary studies dealing with environmental chemistry and toxicology of environmental pollutants are preferred. Global environmental studies and studies dealing with global chemical fate models and monitoring are considered.
While in exceptional cases controlled laboratory studies are welcome to the journal, field studies are preferred. Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology does not publish rodent toxicity studies or monitoring studies of legacy chemicals focused on local or regional scales.
Ecotoxicological studies should include environmentally relevant doses and pathways of exposure.
Contributions to Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology should focus on mechanisms of transport of chemicals in the global environment; mechanisms of toxicity of chemical mixtures in ecosystems; bioavailability, and bioaccumulation in target organisms; biological responses, biomarkers of exposures and effects; biological fate in the food chain. Novel analytical technologies, techniques, and methods in ecosystem analyses including in vitro bioassays, biosensors and bioanalytical systems; processing methods for interdisciplinary ecotoxicological information are also addressed in the journal. Derivation of environmental quality criteria, ecological risk assessment. Methods for ecotoxicological evaluation, remediation strategies, restoration of the ecosystem, developing ecotoxicologically proven methods and technologies for prevention and remediation of human-induced damage to ecosystems are covered.
The scope of the journal is aimed at providing science-based information for sustainable management of ecosystems.
