One of the most important challenges facing the contemporary scientific world are problems connected with environmental protection. Intensive development of industry and agriculture has led to a rise in living standards on one hand, but an increase in environmental degradation on the other. This degradation poses a direct threat to human health and life. Solving these ever-increasing problems which seriously endanger our civilization require the united efforts of scientists and field researchers of many branches. The "Polish Journal of Environmental Studies" publishes original papers and critical reviews on the following subjects: -Basic and applied environmental pollution research, including environmental engineering -Pollution control of atmospheric, water (marine and fresh), soil and biological materials -Determination of harmful substances, including their metabolic breakdown patterns -Analytical methods for metabolic breakdown patterns or other chemical degradation patterns in the environment and in biological samples -Development of new analytical methods, instruments and techniques for controlling pollutants -Circulation of pollutants in the environment and their effect on living organisms -Environmentally oriented catalysis -Hazards to human health and safety -Waste utilization and management -Land reclamation -Conference reports, scientific and technical reports and book reviews 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.

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.
