Environmental Reviews

Environmental Reviews is a journal publishing scholarly reviews in the environmental sciences, as well as letters of opinion and commentaries on issues raised in articles published in the Journal. Publication is in English or in French.

The focus is on critical literature reviews of research within a broad range of the environmental sciences. Certain journal issues may focus on a particular theme, while others will provide reviews covering a variety of topics. Ideally, the subject material is to be international in scope.

All contributions, whether invited or unsolicited, will be reviewed and edited. Skill in communication, as well as authority of knowledge, will be paramount. Authors are encouraged to be creative in the liberal use of figures, tables, charts, and models to visually present data and ideas. Recent books for review will be considered from the environmental sciences, and reviews of some will be included in journal issues. Books for review should be sent to the Editor or to NRC Research Press, clearly marked for Environmental Reviews.
