What the experts say about IJEWM
IJEWM is a new world journal that covers important current research, practice, management and design in all major areas of environmental science, engineering and management. This significant resource is a must for environmental scientists, engineers, professionals and managers. Prof.Yung-Tse Hung, Cleveland State University, USA. IJEWM will soon become a journal recognized for truly linking real world environmental problems to peer-reviewed, pragmatic environmental solutions. Management specialists are always placed in a difficult position of providing the environmental science framework upon which management and policy decisions are made ... IJEWN will address this need". Prof. Ralph J. Portier, Louisiana State University, USA. "Given the global importance of environmental and waste management, it is imperative to have a journal dedicated to this area of research and development. I expect that the IJEWM will attract quickly the attention of researchers and environmental experts throughout the world". Prof. Lambert Otten, University of Guelph, Canada. "I am excited about the prospects of assisting with this journal of distinction. IJEWM is focused on a wide spectrum of air and wastewater treatment management and represents a new generation of leading journals in this area". Prof. Toshiaki Yamamoto, Osaka Prefecture University. Japan. "IJEWM is one of the unique journals in the sense that it focuses holistically on all issues related to the environment but with a special emphasis on burning issues in waste management. This journal will be, without any doubt, the leading forum for high quality research publications on various environmental issues". Prof. Mukesh Khare, Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, India. Any attempt to deal with environmental issues and waste management requires integrative solutions. The wide range of scope covered by IJEWM reflects the need to simultaneously address multiple aspects in order to solve problems effectively. Since IJEWM is devoted to both engineering/technical and management solutions, the journal will become a leading journal in this field and will guarantee high value to a wide range of readership, from scientists to environmental professionals and managers. Dr. Thomas Bechtold, University of Innsbruck, Austria. "What is to be done with the ever increasing amount of waste produced in every aspect of the human activity? Undoubtedly, this is one of the main issues to be addressed by environmentally concerned agents in this new century. It is an honour and a privilege to be part of a journal created to divulge and debate the various aspects of such an important question. Prof. Jos Renato Coury, Universidade Federal de So Carlos, Brazil. Waste management is becoming the most challenging area of the environmental engineering. Therefore, the journal is an excellent place to exchange new ideas between professionals from many countries. I hope that my colleagues and students will find this to be a leading source of useful information. Prof. Janusz Jezowiecki, Wroclaw University of Technology, Poland.

"Engineers and managers are well aware of the fact that they need one another, but frequently a gap exists between the members of these groups. Environmental science requires close collaboration in a great variety of disciplines. Therefore the need is to bring together individuals who are involved in environmental issues by providing a common ground. I believe this journal will serve to carry the well-known mutual interest to mutual benefit". Prof. Dr. Olcay Tunay, Istanbul Technical University, Turkey. The journal covers a wide variety of disciplines related to all aspects of environment and waste management. It offers dissemination of findings with focus objectives, experiencing from the past, analyzing the present and promoting views for the future. Dr. Hamidi A. Aziz, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia. This is indeed a journal arriving at the most opportune time. It truly reflects the interdisciplinary nature of the subject by covering a wide array of subjects. It should appeal to a broad group of audience, academic researchers, industry professionals and administrators and policy analysts. IJWEM should complement its sister publications and become a valuable addition to every library. Prof. T. Swaminathan, Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, India.
