Submit a Manuscript

All manuscripts must be formatted according to the Style Guidelines and then submitted in  ScholarOne  to enter the review process.

All papers published in the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association ( JA&WMA) are subject to page charges: US$69 for current A&WMA members and US$99 for nonmembers. This modest page charge helps to (1) defray the publication costs, and (2) provide open access for all JA&WMA papers after one year from their print publication date.

Note:  Please read the following guidelines carefully. Manuscripts that do not conform to these guidelines may be delayed in publication or returned to authors for resubmittal.

Please Thoroughly Review the Style Guidelines

Publication Policy

Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; and that its publication has been approved by all coauthors and the responsible authorities at the institute where the work was conducted. Submission also implies that the authors have already obtained all necessary permissions for the inclusion of copyrighted materials, such as figures and tables from other publications. Previously published work will not be considered for publication.  JA&WMA will, however, accept manuscripts based on presentations made at conferences sponsored by the Air & Waste Management Association, at the discretion of the Technical Editor-in-Chief.
