Gabriele Schaumann , Landau University, Germany. Vera Slaveykova , University of Geneva, Switzerland. Jason M. Frank von der Kammer , University of Vienna, Austria.
Neil Scriven , Executive Editor. These must report preliminary research findings that are novel and original, of immediate interest and are likely to have a high impact on the Environmental Science: Nano community. Authors must provide a short paragraph explaining why their work justifies rapid publication as a communication.
All papers should give due attention to overcoming limitations and to underlying principles. All contributions will be judged on the following criteria. These may be articles providing a personal view of part of one discipline associated with Environmental Science: Nano or a philosophical look at a topic of relevance. Alternatively, Perspectives may be historical articles covering a particular subject area or the development of particular legislation, technologies, methodologies or other subjects within the scope of Environmental Science: Nano.
Critical reviews must be a critical evaluation of the existing state of knowledge on a particular facet of nanomaterials or nanotechnologies as they affect environmental science. They should be timely and provide insights based on existing literature. They should be of general interest to the journal's wide readership.
All Critical reviews undergo a rigorous and full peer review procedure, in the same way as regular research papers. Authors are encouraged to identify areas in the field where further developments are imminent or of urgent need, and any areas that may be of significance to the community in general. Critical reviews should not contain any unpublished original research. These are shorter, more focused versions of Critical reviews on a well-defined, specific topic area covering approximately the last two-three years.
The article should be highly critical and selective in referencing published work. One or two paragraphs of speculation about possible future developments may also be appropriate in the conclusion section.
Tutorial reviews should provide an introduction and overview of an important topic of relevance to the journal readership. The topic should be of relevance to both researchers who are new to the field as well as experts and provide a good introduction to the development of a subject, its current state and indications of future directions the field is expected to take. Tutorial reviews should not contain unpublished original research. Comments and Replies are a medium for the discussion and exchange of scientific opinions between authors and readers concerning material published in Environmental Science: Nano.
Any Reply should further the discussion presented in the original article and the Comment. Comments and Replies that contain any form of personal attack are not suitable for publication. Comments that are acceptable for publication will be forwarded to the authors of the work being discussed, and these authors will be given the opportunity to submit a Reply. The Comment and Reply will be published together. The following guidelines are journal specific.
For general guidance on preparing an article please visit our Prepare your article and Resources for authors pages, the content of which is relevant to all of our journals. Use of RSC template. There are no submission specifics regarding formatting; use of Royal Society of Chemistry template is not required. Authors are encouraged to include line numbering in submitted manuscripts. Although there is no page limit for Full papers, appropriateness of length to content of new science will be taken into consideration by reviewers.
This statement should be different from the abstract and set the work in broader context with regards to environmental science. This statement will be seen by the reviewers and will help ascertain the relevance of the article for a broad but technical audience and authors should use it to show that they have given serious consideration to problems that are environmental in nature.
If the paper is accepted this statement will also be published. Manuscripts cannot be reviewed without this statement. As an author , you can choose if your manuscript undergoes double-blind peer review or traditional, single-blind peer review. Both options are available and your preference can be selected during the submission process. If you choose the double-blind peer review option, you should ensure that your manuscript and all associated files are suitably anonymised before submission - please refer to our checklist when preparing your submission.
Please note that it is your responsibility as an author to ensure that your manuscript is suitably anonymised. As a reviewer assessing manuscripts where the authors have chosen the option of double-blind peer review, you will receive an invitation where the identity of the authors is kept confidential, and all further communication will omit author and affiliation details.
Please note that, for submissions undergoing single-blind peer review, author details will be absent in some places on our system, but will be present in all emails and manuscript files.
If you determine the identity of the authors who have chosen double-blind peer review, please continue with your review, focusing on the suitability of the manuscript for the Environmental Science: Nano audience in line with our reviewing procedure ; however, please highlight that you were able to identify the authors in the confidential comments to the editor on submitting your review.
Preparing your article for submission Materials characterisation requirements Nanomaterial applications Nanomaterials have the potential for improving the performance of technologies for sustainability for example, water and air treatment, photovoltaics and batteries, remediation. Environmental Science: Nano especially encourages submissions that provide mechanistic insights into how the material properties are impacting performance, and for materials that demonstrate a significant improvement over existing technologies due to the incorporation of nanomaterials.
All papers in this category are expected to have detailed characterization of the nanomaterials and, if applicable, the matrix that they are used in. Specific guidance on each of these types of contributions is below. Papers in this category must provide detailed mechanism or mechanistic insight into how the properties of the nanomaterial lead to the observed material behaviour. Such insight can assist the rational design of new materials or technologies. For example, this could include systematic evaluation of how nanomaterial size, shape, coating, or method of incorporation into a material affects performance.
Demonstration or discussion of the reasons for the improved performance over non-nanoenabled materials is expected for example, is performance enhancement due to the greater surface area of the material, or is there an inherent difference in the reaction mechanisms due to their size. Where possible, the improvement in performance should be quantified. For brand new technologies, a clear case for the need for the material should be included.
Papers focusing on applications should include a comparison to the state of the art. Applications papers without a comparison to state of the art may be rejected without review. Minimum material characterisation requirements detailed below are essential for all submissions to:. Exceptions to these requirements will be made only in the event that they cannot be met.
In these rare instances, the authors will need to address why these requirements should be waived for the manuscript under consideration and why the conclusions of the paper are fully supported by the limited data provided.
In this context, reviewers will be asked specifically to assess whether the data provided are adequate to support the conclusions of the manuscript. An article should have a short, straightforward title directed at the general reader.
Lengthy systematic names and complicated and numerous chemical formulae should therefore be avoided where possible. The use of non-standard abbreviations and symbols in a title is not encouraged. Please bear in mind that readers increasingly use search engines to find literature; recognisable, key words should be included in the title where possible. Brevity in a title, though desirable, should be balanced against its accuracy and usefulness.
The use of series titles and part numbers in titles of papers is discouraged. Instead these can be included as a footnote to the first page together with a reference reference 1 to the preceding part. When the preceding part has been submitted to a Royal Society of Chemistry journal but is not yet published, the paper reference number should be given. For single-blind peer review, please follow the instructions below regarding author names.
For double-blind peer review, please follow the instructions here. Full names for all the authors of an article should be given. To give due acknowledgement to all workers contributing to the work, those who have contributed significantly to the research should be listed as co-authors. Authors who contributed equally can be noted with a Footnote and referenced with a symbol.
On submission of the manuscript, the corresponding author attests to the fact that those named as co-authors have agreed to its submission for publication and accepts the responsibility for having properly included all and only co- authors.
If there are more than 10 co-authors on the manuscript, the corresponding author should provide a statement to specify the contribution of each co-author. The corresponding author signs a copyright licence on behalf of all the authors.
This entry should include a colour image no larger than 8 cm wide x 4 cm high , and words of text that highlight the novel aspects of your work. Graphics should be as clear as possible; simple schematic diagrams or reaction schemes are preferred to ORTEP- style crystal structure depictions and complicated graphs, for example.
The graphic used in the table of contents entry need not necessarily appear in the article itself. Authors should bear in mind the final size of any lettering on the graphic. For examples, please see the online version of the journal. Every paper must be accompanied by a summary words setting out briefly and clearly the main objects and results of the work; it should give the reader a clear idea of what has been achieved. The summary should be essentially independent of the main text; however, names, partial names or linear formulae of compounds may be accompanied by the numbers referring to the corresponding displayed formulae in the body of the text.
Please bear in mind that readers increasingly use search engines to find literature; recognisable, searchable terms and key words should be included in the abstract to enable readers to more effectively find your paper.
Introduction to Environmental Science - 2nd Edition
Every one of us is sustained by various kinds of natural resources — such as food, materials, and energy that are harvested or otherwise extracted from the environment. Our need for those resources is absolute — we cannot survive without them. Moreover, the same is true of all other species — every organism is a component of an ecosystem that provides the means of subsistence. Collectively, the needs and activities of people comprise a human economy. That economy operates at various scales, ranging from an individual person, to a family, to communities such as towns and cities, nation-states such as Canada , and ultimately the global human enterprise.
Science and Sustainability: An Introduction to. Environmental Science. Chapter Objectives. This chapter will help you: Define the term environment and describe.

This class provides an opportunity to develop an understanding of environment, physical and social causes of environmental problems, their impacts, and strategies to manage these issues. Organized study of selected topics. Subjects and credit may vary from semester to semester. Credit Hour : This course introduces fundamental concepts of sustainability from sustainable development to sustainability science.
Publisher: University System of Georgia. The text provides many definitions, but they are not compiled in a glossary. Comprehensiveness rating: 2 see less.
Environmental science is the study of patterns and processes in the natural world and their modification by human activity. To understand current environmental problems, we need to consider physical, biological and chemical processes that are often the basis of those problems. This course will give you the skills necessary to address the environmental issues we are facing today by examining scientific principles and the application of those principles to natural systems.
Environmental science is an interdisciplinary academic field that integrates physical, biological and information sciences including ecology , biology , physics , chemistry , plant science , zoology , mineralogy , oceanography , limnology , soil science , geology and physical geography , and atmospheric science to the study of the environment, and the solution of environmental problems.
