Aim & Scope

The Aegean Journal of Environmental Sciences (AEJES) is an open-access, free of charge e-journal published by the Department of Environment, University of the Aegean, Greece. AEJES publishes peer reviewed, original research on the study of the natural environment and on the society-nature interactions. Although AEJES prime aim is to provide a forum for postgraduate (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) students on environmental sciences programs to publish their research it also strongly welcomes contributions from established scholars/researchers in the field.

Research Areas include, but are not exclusive to:

  • Environmental Politics, Policy and Sociology
  • Environmental Economics and Management
  • Environmental Education
  • Environmental Pollution and Restoration
  • Biodiversity and Conservation
  • Global Environmental Change
  • Environmental Health and Toxicology

AEJES publishes full length research articles (max 8,000 words) and discourages the submission of descriptive/opinion pieces. AEJES also publishes review papers and shorter (max 4,000 words) research reports/communiqués. Suggestions for Special Issues are also welcomed. Prospective authors are encouraged to contact AEJES’ Editors-in-Chief for checking whether their manuscript meets the journal’s scope and aims.
