International Journal of Hazardous Materials

International Journal of Hazardous Materials publishes full length research papers, reviews, and case studies which improve our understanding of the hazards and risks certain materials pose to people and the environment or deal with ways of controlling these hazards and associated risks. The Editors particularly welcome proposals for review articles. To limit the scope the following areas are excluded: standard municipal and waste and wastewater treatment processes; manufacturing of explosives

The Journal publishes high-impact contributions on:
    • Characterization of the harmful effects of chemicals and materials
    • Measurement and Monitoring of Hazardous Materials
    • Transport and Fate of HM in Environment
    • Risk Assessment and Management
    • Physico-chemical and Separation Processes
      • Adsorption
      • Ion Exchange
      • Coagulation/Flocculation/ Precipitation
      • Membrane Processes
      • Flotation
      • Stabilization/Solidification
    • Biological Processes
      • Biodegradation
      • Phytoremediation
    • Advanced Oxidation Processes
      • Photodegradation/Photocatalysis
      • H2O2
      • Fenton
      • Ozone
      • Sonolysis
      • Plasma Processes
    • Safer and Cleaner Technologies

The Journal publishes papers with significant novelty and scientific impact. The Editors reserve the right to decline, without external review, papers that do not meet these criteria, including papers that:

    • Are very similar to previous publications, with changed target substrates, employed materials, analyzed sites or experimental methods,
    • Deal with parameter optimization of known processes without new concepts and/or interpretations
    • Report the environmental analysis and monitoring of specific geographic areas without presenting new insights and/or hypothesis testing, or
    • Do not focus on the environmental relevance and significance of the studied systems or materials.
