How to publish in this journal


The Environmental Engineering Research (EER) is published quarterly by the Korean Society of Environmental Engineers (KSEE). The EER covers a broad spectrum of the science and technology of air, soil, and water management while emphasizing scientific and engineering solutions to environmental issues encountered in industrialization and urbanization. Particularly, interdisciplinary topics and multi-regional/global impacts (including eco-system and human health) of environmental pollution as well as scientific and engineering aspects of novel technologies are considered favorably. The scope of the Journal includes the following areas, but is not limited to: 1. Atmospheric Environment & Climate Change: Global and local climate change, greenhouse gas control, and air quality modeling. 2. Renewable Energy & Waste Management: Energy recovery from waste, incineration, landfill, and green energy. 3. Environmental Biotechnology & Ecology: Nano-biosensor, environmental genomics, bioenergy, and environmental eco-engineering. 4. Physical & Chemical Technology: Membrane technology and advanced oxidation. 5. Environmental System Engineering: Seawater desalination, ICA (instrument, control, and automation), and water reuse. 6. Environmental Health & Toxicology: Micropollutants, hazardous materials, ecotoxicity, and environmental risk assessment. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
