International Journal of Environmental Impacts

The Journal provides an international forum to discuss the numerous environmental problems present in modern society and their impacts, taking into account scientific, economic and social issues.  One important consideration is the way in which they affect the search for sustainability.

The Journal encourages interdisciplinary communication on all issues related to environmental impacts.  There is a need to bridge the gap between the broad spectrum of economic and socio-political disciplines and specialists in engineering and physical, biological, environmental and health sciences, amongst others.

The publication discusses whether some forms of development are compatible with environmental protection, particularly in cases of possible serious contamination and toxicity.  The management of air, water and soil contamination is one of the most challenging issues facing the international community.

Waste Management is one of the key problems of modern society due to the ever expanding volume and complexity of discarded domestic and industrial products.  A major cause of concern are the impacts of waste on health and the environment.

Contributions related to case studies allow learning from past failures, to avoid repeating similar mistakes, while attempting to prevent emerging threats to environmental and ecological systems.

The Journal provides a platform for researchers and professionals involved in Environmental Impact to exchange knowledge and gain an insight into the state of the art in the current technologies, methodologies and solutions in environmental impact management as they are being developed and applied in different regions around the world. Authors include a wide variety of stakeholders from research and academia, to professionals in industry, as well as government organisations.
