Environmental Engineer and Scientist: Applied Research and Practice

The Academy's Publication Committee recognized the need for a peer-reviewed journal focusing on practical research and using case studies related to environmental engineering. The Academy Board concurred, and an Editorial Board was formed, and papers were solicited. Environmental Engineer: Applied Research and Practice was launched, commencing with the Winter 2007 issue of Environmental Engineer. It was renamed Environmental Engineer and Scientist: Applied Research and Practice in January 2013.

Many archival engineering journals emphasize fundamental research and view reports on successful engineering projects as inappropriate for peer reviewed publication. On the contrary, Environmental Engineer and Scientist: Applied Research and Practice, encourages publication of useful reports and applied research with an emphasis on technical, real-world detail. Quality is ensured by peer review and by an Editorial Board of experienced practitioners and educators.

The Editorial Board encourages submission of papers focused on practical research and useful case studies related to environmental engineering. Practical "know-how" reports, interesting designs, and evaluations of engineering processes and systems are examples of appropriate topics. Manuscripts should follow the general requirements of the ASCE authors guide (http://www.pubs.asce.org/authors/index.html#1) and should be submitted electronically in WORD format to: Dr. Herb Ward, Editor, Environmental Engineer and Scientist: Applied Research and Practice, wardch@rice.edu. The Editorial Board strives for prompt review and publication.

Review Process

All papers submitted to the journal are subject to critical peer review by three referees, who have special expertise in a particular subject. The Editor will have final authority over a paper's suitability for publication.

Categories

Papers may be submitted in the following areas:

Applied Research

Original work presented with careful attention to objectives, experimental design, objective data analysis, and reference to the literature. Practical implications should be discussed.

Review

Broad coverage of an environmental engineering application or a related practice with critical summary of other investigators' or practitioners' work.

Practical Notes

Novel methods that the author(s) have found to be sufficiently successful and worth recommending.

Case Studies

Recently completed projects or studies in progress that emphasize novel approaches or significant results.

Design/Operation

Conceptual or physical design or operation of engineering systems based on new models or techniques.

Management

Papers describing novel approaches to problems in environmental management, or to the global, sustainability or business asects of environmental engineering.

Abstract

An abstract of up to 200 words should be provided, including a statement of the problem, method of study, results, and conclusions. References, tables, and figures should not be cited in the abstract. Up to six key words or terms should be included for use by referencing sources.

Photographic Consents

A letter of consent must accompany all photographs of persons in which the possibility of identification exists. It is not sufficient to cover the eyes to mask identity.

Copyright and License to Publish

Authors retain copyright but are required to grant AAEES the license and right to be the first publisher of the paper and to have an ongoing continuing world-wide license to reproduce the paper in print form and on-line.


Online Access

All issues of AAEES's journal are currently online at this link. Over the next couple of months, Applied Research and Practice will be transferred to the AAEES Center.
