Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors Name Environmental Engineering Science as Its Official Journal

New Rochelle, NY, December 13—A leading scientific society of university professors throughout the world that focuses on education and research in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection, the Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors (AEESP), has selected the peer-reviewed journal Environmental Engineering Science as its Official Journal.   Environmental Engineering Science is read around the world and is a highly respected journal that publishes impactful and consequential studies of innovative solutions to problems in air, water, and land contamination and waste disposal, and celebrates its 30th year of consecutive publication in 2013.

 

"This collaboration between AEESP and Environmental Engineering Science brings to fruition a long term effort on the part of AEESP to find improved avenues for promoting environmental engineering and science research”  says AEESP President Mark Wiesner, Professor of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering at Duke University. Outgoing AEESP President Joel G. Burken, Professor of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Rolla, MO reflects that “AEESP investigated and sought this affiliation with Environmental Engineering Science in large part as the consequence of AEESP’s strategic planning efforts and vision to best serve our members and the entire field of environmental engineers and scientist and our membership voted overwhelmingly to back this new collaboration.”
 

“We are embarking on an exciting, important, and meaningful relationship,” says Journal Editor-in-Chief Domenico Grasso, Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate College, The University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, “As Environmental Engineering Science aims to publish the most innovative and impactful advances in environmental science and engineering, it will become an important outlet for disseminating the cutting-edge scholarship and solutions developed by the AEESP membership.”

About the Journal
Environmental Engineering Science is a monthly, online peer-reviewed journal publishing state-of-the-art studies of innovative solutions to problems in air, water, and land contamination and waste disposal. The Journal features applications of environmental engineering and scientific discoveries, policy issues, environmental economics, and sustainable development including climate change, complex and adaptive systems, contaminant fate and transport, environmental risk assessment and management, green technologies, industrial ecology, environmental policy, and energy and the environment.

About the Association
The Association of Environmental Engineering and Science Professors is made up of professors in academic programs throughout the world who provide education in the sciences and technologies of environmental protection. The mission of AEESP is to assist its members in the development and dissemination of knowledge in environmental engineering and science. AEESP seeks to strengthen and advance the discipline of environmental science and engineering by providing leadership, promoting cooperation amongst academics and others within and outside the discipline, and serving as a liaison between its membership and other professional societies, governmental agencies, industry and nonprofit organizations.  The Association has over 850 members as it approaches its 50th anniversary, and is driving for 1000 members before its golden anniversary in December 2013.
