Environmental simulation models provide a solution exploration space for many of the key issues and problems we face in the custodianship of our planet. The turn of the decade is a good time to take stock of the state-of-the-art and the new or remaining challenges for the research agenda. This special issue on Advances in Environmental Modelling will include within its remit simulation modelling of physical, biological, economic and socio-cultural environments. The theme will incorporate not only advances in the approaches to environmental modelling per se, but a more broader view on the evolving contributions that these models make in decision-making and to the sustainability agenda.

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
