Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Atmospheric VOCs are important pollutants because they can be oxidized and consumed to generate free radicals, and then undergo a series free radical reactions to further generate SOA and O3. Moreover, wide epidemiological studies have shown that exposures to VOCs is harmful to human health as it increases the risk of respiratory and cardiovascular disease. However, the polluted pathways vary greatly from place to place because the contributing factors are very complicated, i.e., component, meteorological condition, regional terrain and atmospheric chemistry reaction conditions, which also create difficulties related to model simulation and environmental management. In recognition of this, the open access journal Atmosphere is hosting a Special Issue to showcase the frontier research related to the source apportionment of VOCs and its pollution mechanism. This Special Issue aims to provide new insights into VOCs apportionment and its effect on air pollution. Welcome contributions for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Atmospheric observation show atmospheric chemistry process related to VOCs;
  • The atmospheric physics process on VOCs, i.e., meteorological condition and terrain;
  • Environmental management on VOCs emission control;
  • Public health risk caused by atmospheric VOCs;
  • Models and review papers.

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 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. Atmosphere 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 2400 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.
