Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution remains the greatest environmental health threat worldwide, with only seven countries meeting the WHO annual PM2.5 guideline (annual average of 5 µg/m3 or less) in 2023. Moreover, in some countries and regions, the PM2.5 concentrations exceed the standard by more than five times, such as in Central Asia, South Asia, North Africa, Southern Europe, Latin America, China’s NCP region, and so on. Research regarding air pollution in these regions is often lagging and insufficient due to the economic development constraints. However, under conditions of unique emission characteristics, meteorological conditions, and geographical locations, the formation mechanisms of atmospheric pollution may vary, thus necessitating in-depth research. Therefore, we aim to promote the publication of papers focusing on air pollutants in highly polluted areas in this Special Issue. In particular, whether original research papers or review articles, the Special Issue invites studies including, but not limited to, the following topics:

  1. Investigating the characteristics of air pollutants in pollution progress;
  2. Exploring the sources and formation mechanisms of air pollutants in highly polluted areas;
  3. Assessing the impacts of air pollutants on human health, ecosystems, and climate systems;
  4. Discussing strategies and interventions for mitigating air pollution and improving air quality.

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.
