The name of a journal should accurately reflect the content that it publishes; in the case of the Journal of Environmental Monitoring it is apparent that the phrase ‘environmental monitoring’ clearly misrepresents the breadth of the journal.
Following consultation and feedback from the environmental science community, Journal of Environmental Monitoring is to be renamed Environmental Science: Processes & Impacts from Issue 1, 2013. This move is wholeheartedly supported by the Editorial Board who are confident that the new name demonstrates that the journal focuses on environmental processes and relevant impacts and not on issues associated with monitoring activities.
As an author or reader, you can be assured of the same rigorous standards that you have come to expect from other high calibre RSC journals.
Importantly, the scope of the journal remains the same.
Subscribers can expect to see Environmental Science: Processes & Impacts on their renewals letters for 2013. There will be new online and print ISSNs, but otherwise the transition will be seamless, as the journal content will be published on the same web page.
