AUTHOR GUIDELINES

 

1 Aims & Scope

Before submitting your manuscript to ESA, please ensure you have read the following guidelines. Briefly, the focus of this journal is scientific work at the intersection of Environmental Science, industrial/occupational health, Environmental pollution/remedies, and industrial hygiene.

2 Article Types

Manuscripts are considered for publication with the understanding that they have not been published previously and are not under consideration by another publication.  Abstracts of presentations at scientific meetings are not considered previous publications but should be noted in the manuscript as a reference or footnote.

The journal publishes several types of articles including papers describing:

  • Original research on subjects related to the field of environmental sciences

  • Reviews on subjects of contemporary importance to the environmental science/industrial health/industrial hygiene communities

  • Editorials (short, factual, focused updates on specific subjects of current interest) or preliminary study results;

  • Reports or proceedings (which will be published as supplements to issues of the journal at the expense of the organization that submits the proceedings);

  • Short Communications (Not exceeding 2500 words with 5 references)

 

All manuscripts submitted should be no longer than 4,000 words including References, figures, and Abstract. The Abstract should be no longer than 300 words. Authors are encouraged to use the most recent and relevant references of current years.

All manuscripts should be typed and double-spaced using 12-pitch Times New Roman font.

3. Author names: First page should include the full name and affiliation of each author. Also indicate which author should be the corresponding author and provide a full mailing address, phone and fax numbers, and e-mail address. Please include a running title limited to 50 characters and provide up to 6 keywords applicable to the content of the manuscript. Choose keywords broad enough to increase the chances of your paper being found on a search.

4. Text: Papers are to be organized into Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, and References sections. (Please note that Acknowledgements/Conflicts of Interest/Funding statements should be included at the end).

5. References and Text Citations: The style and format for the References section are SAGE Harvard. References are listed alphabetically by surname of the first author at the end of the manuscript. Articles cited within the text are listed as follows:

Citation method

•    One author by surname of the first author and year of publication e.g., (Sun, 2017)

•    Two authors by the surnames of both authors and year of publication (Sun and Monro, 2005)

•    More than two authors, of the first author followed by the phrase 'et al.,' and year of publication (Sun et al., 2017).

Consecutive citations are placed in chronological order and separated by semicolons (Huo and Yan, 2012a; 2012b).

References

Do not abbreviate the titles of cited references. All cited journal, book, and document titles must be spelled out in full and in italics. References should include authors' last names and initials (without periods), year (in parenthesis), article title, name of the journal, volume, and page range. The article title is all lower case except for the first word, proper nouns, or any special words. Names of genera and species should always be in italics.  Include the city and publisher's name for books.
