Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Air pollution is, at present, a matter of a great concern due to both increased concentration of pollutants and the evidence of their adverse effects on the environment and human health. In order to define effective and targeted control strategies, some aspects must be clarified, such as the effects of air pollution (environmental impact and toxicological effects) and the sources affecting air quality.

Consequently, the specific objectives of this Special Issue can be defined as follows:

  • assessment of air pollution in urban, suburban and industrialized areas across Italy with particular attention to areas heavily impacted by atmospheric pollution;
  • toxicological studies to assess health effects;
  • ecological implication of atmospheric pollution;
  • chemical characterization of wet and dry depositions;
  • chemical characterization of high-concern inorganic and organic pollutants, e.g., heavy metals and PAHs through standardized methodologies and innovative approaches based on high-temporal-resolution monitoring (innovative technologies and sensor-based monitoring networks).

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.
