Call for Papers - Infrastructure Systems and the Environment: Sustainability, Circularity, and Resilience

Infrastructure is the backbone of society. It provides essential services, such as water, sewer, energy, transportation, etc. Mitigating the environmental impacts of infrastructure as well as their adaptation to climate change have emerged as key challenges in the 21st century due to an increasing pace of urbanization, diversity of infrastructure facilities, their capital intensity, long service life, interconnections, and criticality of these facilities and services. This topical collection aims at publishing original papers on emerging research and practice in integrating and coordinating sustainability, circularity, and resilience dimensions to enhance environmental protection, reduce vulnerability to climate change, and improve resource efficiency and recovery in management of infrastructure facilities and services.

Submissions are due by September 30, 2023. You can find more information on this topical collection by clicking on the link above.

Call for Papers: Special Issue on Water Management in a Changing Climate

You are invited to submit research articles, reviews, or comments for a special issue titled "Water Management in a Changing Climate This issue will showcase state-of-the-art advancements on Persistent, emerging, and organic pollutants (PEOPs) especially within the climate change context. 

Persistent, emerging, and organic pollutants (PEOPs) pose ecological and health risks due to their persistent, toxic, carcinogenic, and/or bio-accumulative properties and associated long-term ecological and health risks. Many are not regulated or legislated, mainly due to the lack of in-depth knowledge about their fate, transport, impact, or corresponding lack of effective management and mitigation. These emerging pollutants are found in air, surface water, groundwater, ice caps, oceans, soils, and sediments, and there is increasing evidence of their toxicity at all trophic levels, highlighting an urgent need for effective management and mitigation approaches globally. The topic becomes ever challenging in the context of climate change and important for science and policy.

This special issue resulted from the LEADERS & PEOPLE 2020 Virtual Symposium on August 30-September 1; however, it is open to everyone.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. The manuscript must fully comply with the ESR submission guidelines and should be submitted via Editorial Manager

For any queries regarding submission, please contact the special issue guest editors via email:

Aims and scope

Environmental Systems Research publishes high-quality, interdisciplinary and refereed research papers, review and comment articles, and topical collections on all aspects of environmental systems from water (terrestrial and marine), air, soil and biota. The journal aims to advance and apply scientific knowledge and practical methods to improve our understanding of environmental and sustainability issues and support evidence-based policy making and eco-friendly practice at regional or global scales. The journal particularly encourages innovative, original and cross-disciplinary research on the development and use of new or improved methodologies and technologies for scientific studies and practical work in environmental fields.

The journal coverage includes, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Laboratory, field and modeling studies on sources, fate, transport and effect of traditional and emerging contaminants in the environments
- Monitoring, analysis, prevention, treatment and remediation methods and techniques
- Modeling methods and applications related to assessment, simulation, optimization and management of resources, environmental and ecological systems
- Environmental impact and risk assessment, uncertainty analysis, vulnerability/resilience assessment, and life cycle analysis
- Ecotoxicology, environmental health and safety
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, computer graphics, and geomatics for environmental and ecological studies
- Environmental biotechnology, microbiology, and genomics
- New material and nanotechnology and their environmental applications
- Cleaner production, green chemistry, and resource-oriented waste management
- Water resources and watershed modeling, storm water management, and flood/draught control
- Climate change impact assessment and adaptation planning
- Environmental sustainability, circular economy, and asset management
- Environmental decision making, policy, legislation and governance
