Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue aims to collect updated research on anthropogenic pollutant emission inventories. Emission inventories, as the foundation input data for chemical transport and dispersion models, are essential for quantifying impacts on air quality and human health, formulating control policies, etc. This topic is related to the further accurate quantification of emission inventories, such as emission estimation method improvement, uncertainty analysis and verification, scalable emission factor development, incorporation of new emission measurement techniques, and uncharacterized source analysis. This topic is also related to the application of emission inventories.

Topics of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Emission characteristics of various emission sources;
  • High-resolution emission inventories with information on spatial distributions, temporal variations, and chemical speciation;
  • Local emission factors and refined whole-process emission inventories;
  • Evaluation and verification of emission inventories, including satellite-based and in situ observations;
  • Applications of emission inventories, including air quality, health, or economic impacts.

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. 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.
