Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the current scenario of rapid industrialization and population growth, pollution in different forms is also amplified and poses a serious threat to human health. Systematic monitoring and analysis of pollutant data is essential to resist against such threats. On the other hand, the behavior of pollutant datasets is very complex in nature, which often presents difficulties for simulation and forecasting.

This complex behavior includes non-linearity, non-stationarity, multiscaling, stochasticity, fractality, etc. Advancements in statistical theory and mathematical transforms will help to improve the characterization of the complex time series of pollutants and advancements in the artificial intelligence paradigms, which will in turn help towards improved forecasting of pollutants.

In this Special Issue, we invite submissions of original research or review papers related to the analysis, characterization, and prediction of pollutant time series (water, air, noise, or any related forms). Examples of topics that could be addressed include but are not limited to new research methodologies, analysis of stochastic behavior and complexity analysis of pollutant time series, time-frequency characterization of pollutants, fractal and multifractal analysis of pollutants, pollution monitoring, statistical analysis and imputation of pollutant data, and predictive modeling of pollutants using machine learning and deep learning.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Pollutants is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
