BMC Environmental Science is now open for submissions!

We are pleased to introduce BMC Environmental Science, an important and timely addition to the BMC Series portfolio. The BMC Series is widely recognized for its commitment to reliable open-access publishing, tailored to the specific needs of the research communities we serve.

At a time of unprecedented global change and great uncertainties, scientific information is critical to mitigate human induced effects on global climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss. Our fully open access policy with freely available data aims to speed up the pace of discovery and produce robust and reproducible science. Like all BMC Series titles, we support transparent peer review and make editorial decisions based on the validity and rigor of a study rather than its perceived impact.

BMC Environmental Science also welcomes Dr. Marie-Therese Noedl as its Associate Editor. She shares her enthusiasm for the journal’s mission stating, “I look forward to driving the journal’s commitment in advancing our understanding of environmental phenomena and promoting sustainable practices. We are dedicated to publishing scientifically sound research that helps support informed decisions and formulate environmental policies necessary to make a real-life impact.”

Our new journal encourages a cross-disciplinary discourse and invites submissions from all scientific fields including natural, formal and applied sciences. Focusing on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)s we particularly encourage contributions that center on clean water and sanitation (SDG 6), affordable and clean energy (SDG 7), sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11), responsible consumption and production (SDG 12) climate action (SDG 13), life below water (SDG 14), and life on land (SDG 15). ). In addition, the journal welcomes manuscripts from a wide range of research areas addressing global sustainability, conservation and science policies including environmental protection, climate change, pollution, renewable energy and more.
