The State of Hazardous Waste Characterization and Management: The Interface between Science and Public Policy
Deadline: 15th December 2019
About this Special Issue
Papers are invited on the topic of “The State of Hazardous Waste Characterization and Management: The Interface between Science and Public Policy” to be published as a Special Issue of the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association (J&AWMA) in 2020 (Volume 70).
Authors are encouraged to (re)examine specific hazardous wastes, regulatory policies pertaining to hazardous waste characterization/disposal, and/or waste characterization testing protocols in view of novel research findings. Specifically, authors are encouraged to consider alterations to public policy, the development of alternative waste characterization methods, and novel insights into hazardous waste behavior that may promote more sustainable and resource efficient management of these wastes. Research should have a clear connection to how it promotes the sustainable management of materials, more accurate quantification of risk, and/or public welfare compared to existing policy/methods/understanding.
Deadline: 15th December 2019
All papers published in the Journal of the Air & Waste Management Association (JA&WMA) are subject to page charges: US$69 for current A&WMA members (name and member ID required) and US$99 for nonmembers. This modest page charge helps to (1) defray the publication costs, and (2) provide open access for all JA&WMA papers after one year from their print publication date.
When submitting a paper for this Special Issue, please select MS Type “2020 Hazardous Waste” via the ScholarOne Manuscript Review System.
