About Recycling


Recycling (ISSN 2313-4321) is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes, and short communications in the area of waste re-utilization, waste management technologies, resource recycling policy, and resource recycling practices. It provides an international online forum for research and studies on recycling, resource recovery, and waste utilization across many industries, including glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and electronics.

We encourage scientists to publish experimental, theoretical, and applied research relating to innovative processes, tools, and methodologies to enable important resource recycling. In addition, articles relating to the evaluation of the recycling process together with inter-connected issues (socio-cultural, political, economic, and legal considerations) related to recycling are also invited.
