Environmental and Earth Sciences Research Journal (EESRJ) is a quarterly international journal for scientists, engineers, technologists, aiming at publishing papers on the most outstanding discoveries in both basic and applied research of all areas of earth sciences. The mission of the journal is to bring all relevant earth science areas together on a rapid and open-access platform and become the premier source of high quality research from all over the word.

All submissions to the journal will be first evaluated for novelty and usefulness to the scientific community and society at large, before a decision is made to send to review.

EESRJ welcomes specials issue which specially publish selected papers presented at international conferences or forums. Special issues will also go through rigorous review.

Peer Review Process

A double blind reviewing procedure is adopted by EESRJ. After submission, if the topics of the paper are appropriate for the journal, the manuscript is sent to the editor-in-chief or managing editor and then the paper will reach a panel of experts as reviewers involved in those research areas, who can be either external or members of the editorial board. Each paper is reviewed by at least two reviewers. The final decision concerning the papers publication belongs to the editor-in-chief or managing editor. And their comments will be returned to the author. There are four possible outcomes:

a) Accept: the paper will be published without any revision.

b) Minor revision: the author will be required to revise the paper according to reviewers’ comments and then return the revised paper to the editor. The paper will be accepted at the editor’s discretion.

c) Major revision: the author will be required to significantly revise the paper according to reviewers’ comments and then return the revised paper to the editor. The paper will then undergo another, final round of refereeing.

d) Reject: the paper will not be published.

Upon acceptance, the author will receive an acceptance letter sent by the editor in chief or managing editor and be required to prepare the paper in MS Word using the template of EESRJ.
