Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research (AEER) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal published quarterly online by LIDSEN Publishing Inc. This periodical is devoted to publishing high-quality peer-reviewed papers that describe the most significant and cutting-edge research in all areas of environmental science and engineering. Work at any scale, from molecular biology through to ecology, is welcomed.

Main research areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Atmospheric pollutants
  • Air pollution control engineering
  • Climate change
  • Ecological and human risk assessment
  • Environmental management and policy
  • Environmental impact and risk assessment
  • Environmental microbiology
  • Ecosystem services, biodiversity and natural capital
  • Environmental economics
  • Control and monitoring of pollutants
  • Remediation of polluted soils and water
  • Fate and transport of contaminants
  • Water and wastewater treatment engineering
  • Solid waste treatment

Advances in Environmental and Engineering Research publishes a range of papers (original research, review, communication, opinion, study protocol, comment, conference report, technical note, book review, etc.). We encourage authors to be succinct; however, authors should present their results in as much detail as necessary. Reviewers are expected to emphasize scientific rigor and reproducibility.

Research Interests: Carbon Emissions; Agriculture; Green gas

About the topic:

Environmental pollution has been the focus of people's attention, but mainly concentrated in the industrial field. In recent years, agricultural carbon emissions in rural areas have attracted more and more academic attention. Agricultural carbon emissions not only have an impact on agricultural output, but also have a huge impact on the health of people, especially farmers, and the corresponding health expenditure. Therefore, this topic mainly includes but is not limited to the following topics: environmental pollution, agricultural carbon emissions, health and health expenditure of farmers, etc.


Environmental pollution; Agricultural carbon emissions; Farmers; Health expenditure

N2O Emission Pattern in A Legume-Based Agroecosystem

Received: 26 January 2023;  Published: 26 April 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2302029


Legumes provide several ecological services to agroecosystems, but there is a lack of references on services related to N flows for a wide range of legume crops. N2O emissions were measured in two field experiments using a two-year legume-cereal crop sequence. In the first year (2014 and 2016), different legume crops [...]

Biogeochemical Technologies for Managing CO2 Flows in Agroecosystems

Received: 17 October 2022;  Published: 28 January 2023;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2301012


The review article discusses the application of biogeochemical technologies aimed at restoring biogeochemical cycles in agroecosystems, primarily in the microbial link regulating CO2 flows. The factors of management this microbial link when applying mineral and organic fertilizers are shown. The processes of minerali [...]

The Role of Agriculture in the Australian Government’s Emission Reduction Fund

Received: 21 July 2022;  Published: 10 October 2022;  doi: 10.21926/aeer.2204039


Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture in 2022 were 67.8 million (M) tonnes (t) of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2-e), amounting to 12.9% of total emissions. Erupted methane (CH4) from ruminant animals comprised 42% of agricultural emissions. By 2030, the Australian Government aims [...]
