Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a joint Special Issue with the 2018 International Conference on Environmental and Water Resources Engineering (EWRE 2018, 12–14 October, Jeju Island, Korea). It will feature original research, application papers and review papers on the theory, design and implementation of environmental and water resources engineering, etc. Topics include but not limited to: environmental science and technology; environmental dynamics; global environmental change and ecosystems management; climate and climatic changes; global warming; environmental restoration and ecological engineering; wetlands; ground water remediation; environmental sustainability; environmental systems approach; sustainable cities; green energy; health and the environment; water resources systems; climate change impacts on hydrology and water resources; monitoring, remediation, assessment and protection of water resources; planning and management of water resources and water provision; watershed hydrology; water quality assessment; water environment protection; sustainable use of water resources; unsustainable patterns of water consumption and use; water demand and consumption; water recycling and reuse; fresh water security; ground water monitoring and modeling; urban water; and water and environment.

The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally-accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Environments, published by MDPI, in open access. Each submission to this Special Issue should contain new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action. At least two technical committees will act as reviewers for each extended article submitted to this Special Issue; if needed, additional external reviewers will be invited to guarantee a high-quality reviewing process.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Environments is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
