JEQ Special Sections in Development

Goal: Journal of Environment Quality special sections are designed to:

  • bring to the forefront and promote new areas of research of broad interest to the JEQ readership;
  • highlight and provide a platform for scientific exchange resulting from symposia, collaborative projects, and topical conferences through rigorous and professional peer review process;
  • provide a periodic overview of the state of the art in various research area by soliciting contributions from active leaders in the field of environmental quality.

Process: A proposal for a special section solicits and calls for papers along a theme (approved by the JEQ Editor) to be submitted, reviewed and published within time frame of one year. A typical special section size varies from 6 to 25 manuscripts.

Proposals for a new special section: Please submit a simple one page proposal to the JEQ Editor, Ed Gregorich. The proposal should include the section's title; an abstract with motivation, scope, and example contributions; a list of potential contributors; suggested guest associate editors; and timeline (3 month blocks—submission, review, publication).
