Aims and Scope
ESPR serves the international community in all areas of Environmental Science and related subjects with emphasis on chemical compounds. It reports from a broad interdisciplinary outlook. Apart from the strictly scientific contributions as research articles (short and full papers) and reviews, ESPR publishes: news & views from research and technology, legislation and regulation, hardware and software, education, literature, institutions, organizations, conferences.
For maximum benefit to the environmental community, ESPR has the following features: -ESPR is conceived as a truly international and scientific journal.
- ESPR reports from an interdisciplinary outlook (with emphasis on the natural sciences, but including legislation, regulation, and economy.
- ESPR is chemical-compound oriented but also covers all of Environmental Science.
These characteristics allow ESPR to serve a large and diverse audience:
- Action groups
- Educated laymen
- Environmental scientists
- Public and industrial health personnel
Information from ESPR should also be useful for planning lectures and university environmental curricula. A global network of editorial board members represents a variety of disciplines and groups of interest: university, industry, administrative bodies, government, consulting companies, public interest groups. The Editorial Board safeguards the international and interdisciplinary character of the journal and ensures appropriate refereeing procedures (peer review).

FECS Division for Chemistry and the Environment and ESPR:
ESPR is the official Organ of FECS DCE (FECS: Federation of European Chemical Societies).
The overall aim of the FECS DCE is to promote and support the co-operation about chemistry and the environment issues between the European chemical societies and their members. Activities of how to achieve this aim, are:
- Organising international scientific conferences
- Through sub or task groups organising or sponsoring smaller scientific meetings and workshops
- Facilitating and encouraging research collaboration in environmental chemistry,
environmental science and environmental technology across the wider European region
- Information exchange concerning relevant national activities, institutions and progresses -Promulgating good practice in environmental chemistry education in both curriculum content and supporting texts
- Developing strategic relationships with publishers and other organisations
- Attempting to influence opinion formers in government, industry and the media on environmental chemistry issues
- Liasing with active groups or organisations in similar and related areas and disciplines, and collaborating where appropriate.
FECS DCE and ESPR support each other in their joint aim to serve the environment. ESPR informs about the activities of the Division in the printed journal and on the web site.
