Special issues of the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association (JA&WMA) provide a unique venue for grouping and publishing select papers from environmental conferences and research projects. They are a valuable resource to libraries and researchers around the world, presenting a one-stop collection of the most current thinking on important environmental topics.
For conference/project organizers and authors, JA&WMA special issues offer several advantages:
- Reputation. In print since 1951, JA&WMA is the oldest continuously published, peer-reviewed, environmental journal in the world. JA&WMA is widely recognized as one of the premier publications in the field of air pollution and waste management.
- Flexibility. The size of the printed journal can be scaled to accommodate the size of the conference/project and the number of manuscripts that pass JA&WMA’s rigorous peer-review process. Note: Basic pricing is based on issues of 136 pages.
- Guest Editorial. The conference chair, project leader, or whoever else is serving as the Special Issue Coordinator is given the opportunity to prepare a one-page introduction to a sponsored special issue, describing the manuscripts included and their importance to the understanding of the topic.
